Re: Massive dental phobia

Yes I can relate to you mate. I have been suffering this for about five years and whilst on holiday last year i made friends with a girl who had the most beautiful teeth. Sitting next to her at night i felt i couldn't smile and just felt totally wretched. I promised myself that when i got home i would make that appointment. Well i did and i made myself go, telling myself all the way how stupid i was at feeling like a quivering jelly. When i got inside i told the receptionist how bad i was with the fear, she could see i was a wreck and before i went in she went and had a word with the dentist. Well you know what he was unbelievable, every step of the way he kept saying tell me when you are anxious and i will stop and have a break. I lost three teeth for being so scared and now i wished i had gotten the courage earlier. Please please go before things get worse, as they will, i bet you will feel just like me after. I still don't like it but would never ever put it off again.
