Grrrh had to bite the bullet and get a couple of fillings done this morning.  Don't get me wrong I am very grateful that I can afford to look after my teeth.  A couple of friends in the USA who are also poor artists, cannot afford health care over there and they both have faced horrendous dental treatment recently.  Its just I have this terrible fear of dentist's.  It dates back to when I was about 10 and we where living on Waipoao Station, NZ and several times a year a group of us where taken to Whatatutu Primary School where they had a Dental clinic.  I was the first one in, and my mum always taught me to be truthful, when the other kids asked if it hurt, me and my honest big mouth told them it did.  I got hauled over the coals and wrapped across the knuckles with a wooden ruler, and that has stayed in my memory forever.  I know its all in my mind, but when that drill starts up I clench up, hands, feet, eyes and just about every other muscle in my body.  I know you are probably are saying "what a  sook", but you know, I am usually pretty tough when it comes to pain, but that drill starts every nerve screaming, get me out of here.
enjoy your weekend, the weather is just pure bliss in my little corner of the world and I intend to take advantage of it.

I hear you, my memories of "the murder house" have ruined me for life. Sook too.

It does not necessarily concern itself with dental and oral health.Thanks look for Barrie Dentist.
