Are you Afraid of the Dentist?
I think it's up there along with public speaking. So who here is afraid of the dentist and avoid them like the plague unless the pain is unbearable?
I recently had some work done and now I'm getting over a cold/flu. Seems the last few times I've visited a dentist, I would always get 'sick' a day or two later.
Can't be a coincidence. My immediate theory is that their instruments are not sterile and I may have got remnants of someone else germs and got sick. I went Googling for answers. One possible scenario is that our mouths are full of germs but while in our mouths they don't do any harm but when it gets into our bloodstream, it's a different story.
Anyway, to say that I'm afraid of the dentist is an understatement. My back was stiff as a board most of the time I spent in the chair getting my work done. It's like a scene out of a movie where someone is strapped down and given juice to fry them. Arched back and white knuckled. LOL,
Damn this runny nose and constant sneezing though.
