Breakfast and dentists

For breakfast today – home baked blueberry muffin – most delicious.

Also much strong coffee to counter act Dentist Anxiety. Some people hate heights, others confined spaces – me, it's dentists.

My sister visited the dentist once and he said he had to do a bit of work on a tooth. Started the drill and said if this starts to hurt let me know. Started drilling and Jane was in pain so grunted stop but he kept going. He hit a tender bit so Jane punched him – quite justified if you ask me.

My dentist now has new premises, but whereas they used to have a door between the waiting room and the consultation rooms, it's now all open so you can hear the previous victim's screams before you go in. Nice!

Still feeling a bit ropey an hour later…

    Archers (make it a triple) and 2 Diazepam usually works wonders for me! My poor dentist has never quite seen me totally sober. Okay, so it's a huge inconvenience having my mum TAKE me to the dentist and fetch me back as I can hardly SEE straight, let alone drive straight (and I'm a 38 year old mum of 3 for heaven's sake), but on the plus side, my dentist said I'm the happiest patient he's ever encountered…..and my phobia is masked enough by the sedatives and Archers to enable me to sit in the chair, have the work done, and contemplate going back again when the need arises.

    Hmmm…still don't like the sound of open plan though – rather like the night I gave birth to our first baby – on arrival in the delivery room my husband and I were terrified when we realised that the screams we heard in the next room were not the screams of a newborn baby filling it's lungs for the first time, but the poor mother in the throes of labour.
