Well i just had a jolt back to reality - it is only a tooth after all.
I just ran into an acquaintance who is on the verge of tears, told me she is very very ill, and is going into hospital tomorrow for more tests.
A pulled tooth is a walk in the park compared to what she is going through....
Reminds me of the saying about the man who was walking around complaining about having no shoes, when he ran into a man with no feet.
Its all in the perspective isnt it.
Thanks everyone for your encouragement.
Will remember what you said Kathleen, i am sure it will help.
I will just stop being a baby and go and get it done....
first i have to make the appointment......
