Last Friday morning I went to the dentist and had all my teeth pulled. I know that it had to be done and the procedure went fine. The dentist was grand. I have a problem with needles and the only way I got through it was to close my eyes whenever the needle came anywhere my mouth. I know, what a cry baby! I can hear my mom now, “Suck it up and stop being a sniveling whelp!” The procedure is not the end of the world.” She was right, the procedure was not the end of the world.
My aversion to needles is unfounded and silly however, it’s still here, still bugging me when I have to go to the doctor and have blood drawn or a shot. So I will suck it up, and shut my eyes when the needle comes.
