it used to be that I only freaked out over me going to the doctor/dentist. Now its to the point that by the time I work up the courage and make the call to get one of the kids an appt I'm a nervous wreck. Ds has a tooth that is bothering him. He's way overdue for a checkup but we were without insurance and barely getting by. The choice was dentist or food. I just called to get him in though...new insurance means new dentist. I am shaking like a leaf. My chest is tight. I can barely breathe. I know they'll think I'm a terrible mother ....he's going to loose this tooth I'm afraid. Older ds has terrible teeth...he was 5 before we could get toothpaste in his mouth or he would throw up...same thing with any medicine. When I took him the dentist actually yelled at me. Anyway ds is set to go in Thursday...please pray for him and me that I don't have a nervous breakdown.
