Had my second dentist appointment this morning. Getting out of bed and hitting the Valiums first thing does make me feel like a third-rate Hunter S. Thompson.
Guess my anxiety level was lower this time, probably due to knowing better what I was in for. (Had the exact same procedure performed on the left side of the mouth as was done on the right side last time.)
Even started falling asleep in the chair toward the end, which was nice except for the sleep hallucinations.
And now only one visit remains for some final cleaning and having the new crown put on. Whew.
It’s good to have pain in the rearview mirror.
