I don't have the greatest luck when it comes to going to the dentist. I think it all started when I knocked out a few teeth during a cheerleading accident years ago. Since then, I have a lot of anxiety when having anything more than just my regular cleaning and check-up done.
Today, I had to have Oral Surgery done on an old root canal that had gone bad. Needless to say, I had to take some anxiety medication to help me even get to the Dentist office today. As the day progressed - I was having trouble even remembering going to the dentist. I woke up from a nap panicking that I had missed my appointment. Kind of scary - but unfortunately, it was exactly what I needed.
I am hoping that my fear of the Dentist is NOT a trait Jackson will pick up from me.
Our Dentist has asked that we bring Jackson in for his first appointment in May. He will be 2 and the Dentist thinks its time he takes a look at Jackson's choppers. Wish us luck!
I'm still on heavy pain medication and need to head to bed.
A special thanks to Justin who took great care of me today! He even ran to the grocery and got my favorite Popsicles! :)
