I'm glad it's over as well, was in that rotten chair for just about an hour, had 3 (or was it 4) lots of injections and it still hurt, so in the end had to decide wether to just let him pull it in one big heave, or to leave it loosened and take antibiotics for a week. The infection stops the pain killer working right. Seeing as we had made a start, and figuring that once I got out of the chair, it's going to be a while before I'm getting it together enough to go back, I made him promise that if he was going to pull it he would be real quick, and out it came.

The dentist phobia has not gone down any after this visit, but at least the jaw got a couple of weeks to settle down before we go on vacation. The injections are just starting to wear off, so I'm off to take some pain pills

From a bad experience when I was a Child at the Dentist when I had my tooth pulled out that had decay. I hated it when they put me under with sleeping gas it made me scarred of Dentists throughout my childhood but as I grow older they gave me local anesthetic when extracting a tooth or doing a filling. They not so bad after all and will have a overcrowded tooth removed next month that no longer bother me.

I still hate the idea of having a general anesthetic if I ever need to have one as I hate Hospitals and the thought of any Surgery would scare me a lot.

very good thread

Mine are pretty common.  Spiders and most bug well really any bug that flies, crawls, walks etc.   OK so all bugs.  Butterflies are ok and so are lady bugs - go figure.   But I love snakes and reptiles.  Also, scared of my dentist and he's a really nice guy who deals well with my terror of him and my hate of his profession. 

Fun to see we all have fears - makes us really normal I think.

Be well all,
Deborah

Denny - sorry about your tooth, especially because it required a visit to one of  THEM!!!

My biggest fear is being trapped in something burning , like a house or car.

Other than that, any bugs, spiders, whatever on me.  I can deal unless I can feel all those legs! yuk :-[

Hi;
  I think I fear the unknown more than anything. Not sure why, but it really disturbs me.

This ones confusing. I like to be tough and try to be tough. I did fear factor live at universal and had 6 scorpians on my head ( I don't mind bugs). It was nerve racking but I loved that I did it and went on and on how fear is not a factor for me. BUT.... I was a big wuss when it came to the roller coasters with the special effects like the fire shooting out at you. I could feel the heat and hated it. My husband who is a lieut on the fire dept.  thought that was a hoot. And kept reminding me fear is a factor when I tried to chicken out on the Mummy ride, which of course I then had to do becuase I do let peer preasure get the best of me (even at 37). lol.

bugs (all kinds), germs,
not being able to escape from something/someplace, this is the worst fear I have.  It's so bad that it applies sometimes braces and casts too.  Braces are fine because I can take them off, but If I wear them too long I have problems.  When I broke my ankle, I was having such bad panic attacks from the cast, that my OS took it off and put me in a walking boot. 

I also used to be afraid of the dark and the basement, but I kind of gotten over these since getting into paranormal investigations.

Sputum. Not the kind that people spit normally, but the kind we nurses have to deal with that comes from the deep dark depths of peoples chests. I can't empty a suction cannister of secretions without gagging. I'm gagging just thinking about it! Blah!!  :P
