I had my quarterly appointment with the dental hygienist this morning for scaling/root planing. As if that wasnít bad enough, the dentist came in to have a look, and found a white spot under my tongue. He wants me to have it checked by an oral surgeon. I embarrassed myself by bursting into tears. It was the straw that broke the camel's back.
I told the dentist how impossibly hectic my schedule has been. I announced that Iíve had enough. The dentist was very sympathetic, but insisted that I must have this taken care of.
The thing is, Iíve already been through this. Several years ago, I had a spot cut off the bottom of my tongue. It was awful - one of the most unpleasant procedures I've ever had. The pain and swelling lasted for about a week. I just can't bear the thought of any more pain.
Iím feeling pretty overwhelmed right now. And so very tired. Iím going to bed.
