On Tuesday I went to the dentist to get a few cavities taken care of. I was offered NOS (Nitrous oxide) and normally I would say no thanks I can take it. I light of my last dentist experience I gave in and accepted. So when your nossed up you mind is the loudest voice in your head, you become super aware of everything yet it does not really apply to you so it does not matter. Time becomes confusing as minutes feel like seconds and everything looks interesting.
So as I am in full dialogue with my mind discussing the art in the room I feel a sharp pain but it feels far away and like it belongs to someone else. I think “oh yeah I am probably getting the Novocaine shot right now.” I realize that this event happened several minutes ago. When the dentist says to open my mouth I begin thinking about the pros and cons of that action for a minute or two and then realize my mouth is already open…What!? Who did this?
As I was staring at the sealing I noticed that the florescent lights had a perfectly squared grid and I became convinced that it was my job to count each square, an impossible job when the room feels like it is spinning. I tried really hard but could not get past six.
Anyways this was a first for me, tell me about your experience in the comment box and if you have ever experienced this make sure to click like on this post.
PS I highly, no pun intended, recommend my dentist if you live in the bay area. Here is her fan page
