Well there are not many things in life I am scared of, but the dentist is one of them. 
I have a huge phobia, and just typing this is scary. I am off to go and see mine for some work that will make me Speechless! LOL 

True but only for a day, I hope. 


The only other thing I am afraid of if you haven't guessed is  @The Cat's Mother

lol!

Well my checklist is done, Video is already made this morning, Just needs to be edited when I come home. And that is it. Really I am terrified! But I know it needs to be done. DOH Dang teeth.

Well I give up. I fought my nerves and getting sick numerous times,  then I finally was able to get in my Jeep.  
The dang battery was / is dead! 

I give up! I chickened out and phoned the practice and said just charge me. I will call if I need urgent care. I really give up! 3rd time I had to cancel and all genuine reasons! But my anxiety is all over the place  

It is soo annoying! You can't control your body or its reactions.

Not good at all. There may be desensitising (or whatever they're called) courses available to help with the phobia. Would you be able to have an examination, with a promise that the dentist won't do anything other than tell you if anything is needed? At least then you would have either an all clear or a warning.

Thanks everyone, 
I can say that I have never liked the dentist, but after a BIG mess up I had anxiety since. But recently it has developed into something MUCH worse. 
I feel like a wimp! But to be clear, when you literally fall to your knees being sick, and your body prevents you leaving the house it is crazy! 

I wont go into details, but I pushed past that barrier today and went out. I got to my car and went to start it. But the battery was dead! I was soo and am soo annoyed. 
I was ready in my mind or so I thought, and got very very angry to say the least. I waited 10 minutes and called the surgery. They were fantastic and more than understanding but I feel and felt stupid. 

I then had my adrenaline rush stop and again was sick. WHY!!!!! After that settled I am now back to myself but feeling STUPID. I know there is nothing to fear. I have had operations after ops and it is soo silly. I know I need the treatment. As I said long story, but argh. I told them to just bill me and at the moment ( yes this is a stupid thing to say ) but if I need to I have plyers and will sort myself out! God knows I have enough medications to stop any pain. 

But this is crippling and it is something I have NEVER experienced in my life. WOW your body doesn't half do some silly things. And I tried breathing, calming myself down. Repeating there is nothing to fear but fear itself. I got to the Jeep for god sake!!!! Then this slapped me in the face. Oh well. I do feel like a child. and am highly embarrassed. I thought when I wrote this that I was being brave, and it was one way I used at the time to help convince myself to go.

Is there someone who could go with you, if that would help? Maybe even get the doctor to prescribe a tranquiliser to take before you go.
