Missing Left Sock Beast [userpic]

I have to go to the dentist today; to have a procedure that may or may not be a root canal.

I don't want to go to the dentist today, for any procedure.  I hate the dentist.

Laugh at me all you want, but I'm taking a teddy bear with me.

Comments

Actually, I'm very happy with this dentist; as I will be posting to the main journal shortly.

I'm also not the only adult who brings plush toys to the office.

I took my iPod and big over-the-ear headphones to help cut out the noise. :)

I couldn't do that; I have a tendency to bite down, so I need to be able to hear the dentist. :)

Ah, that's why I had the remote and "mute" button in my hand the whole time. It worked out pretty well.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!

I'm not laughing.

I'm considering doing the same the next time I have to go. I cry almost every time I have to be worked on.

Do it. It really helps.

I don't necessarily cry, but I have strong fight or flight inclinations and then when I leave the dentist's office all I want to do is sleep for a couple of hours.

well, my thing is when they start at me with a needle (slight needle phobia comes into play), the tears just start sliding out. Maybe if I had something in my hands, it wouldn't be so bad...

I think it was from the time I had to have my baby canines taken out by the dentist-- HORRIBLE experience. He hit the nerve in my gum with the needle, and had the audacity to tell me, "Big girls don't cry". So here I was, all of friggin' seven or eight with a big case of You Do What The Doctor Tells You, trying not to shriek with tears just streaming from my eyes into my hair.

I was pretty good with the oral surgeon-- he seranaded me with Frank Sinatra. I only got buggy at the very last, and he was so cool with it...

but yeah. Opus comes with me, no matter what.
