To be honest, there isn’t a lot I am afraid of. Of course I have normal fears. Fear that something bad will happen to one of my kids or my husband.
When I have to take one of my kids to the doctor or the dentist, and they must have a shot or a procedure done, I show a brave face and try to talk them through the situation. I urge them to have and show no fear, that whatever pain they may feel will be temporary. They are typical kids and will cry and scream, and when it’s all over will look at me with tear stained eyes and say “That wasn’t bad at all”.
If my children (who are all 8 years-old and under) can pull together enough courage to endure, why am I having near panic attacks thinking about going to the dentist myself?
I should be relieved. After all, it has kept me up for the past 2 nights and has even hurt all day today.
So I am trying to figure out where this fear is coming from. Going to the dentist has never really bothered me. Of course it isn’t my favorite pastime or anything, but I have always endured the drills and what not well.
Maybe it is because I haven’t been to the dentist in years? Maybe it’s because I watch the sheer terror in Carolyne when she has to go? Maybe it’s the thought of all that money?
What ever it is, I sure wish I had a Xanax for tonight and tomorrow to get me through! ( JUST KIDDING…kinda)
Do you remember me mentioning yesterday that I can’t stand chicken? Today as I have laid around, nursing my aching tooth, I watched Julie and Julia (again). And I have to say, in that one scene where Julie is cooking the chicken and mushrooms in cream and port looks absolutely de.lic.ious! I may have to find that recipe and give chicken another go!
Do you have any unexplained/irrational fears?
Is there a food you loath?
