I have visited this site in the past and just joined in the last week. I have a severe dental phobia and have been trying to put things off until my youngest is legally an adult. I'm that scared that something bad will happen and he will lose me before he is an adult. That's just over four more months and now I am having symptoms I can't ignore. I so wanted to wait until after his birthday. I have an appointment this Wednesday, July 14 and I am filled with terror and dread. I think about it all day and wake up depressed and anxious. It's like this is my whole life now. If I lose one more tooth I think I will need to get a partial and I am terrified at having something in my mouth and adjusting, but there are no good options left. I dread needing the local anesthetic and everything associated with all of this. I want to run and hide. (I am scared of catching COVID there, too).
