Facing my fears...

I could use some prayer...tomorrow I am going to the dentist. I haven't been to a dental office for several years, because of fears I have related to the sexual abuse. I don't like things touching my mouth or face, especially without my permission. The only reason I opted for tomorrow's appointment is because my mom is also having some dental work done at the same time, and if I need her, I can reach her immediately. 
I know my teeth are not in good shape because of this very active avoidance of the dentist, so I am also afraid of what they're going to say about the condition of my teeth. 
This is a huge step of faith for me. I don't want to do it, but it's like ripping off a bandaid. I might as well do it all at once.
I know the Lord is in control, and I need to just breathe. I can rest in Him.
My appointment is at 1:15 CT tomorrow afternoon.

I am sorry for all you have gone through. I avoided the dentist for a long time too. Had the same fears about going back. But it was not as bad as I had hoped, and now my dental health is quite good actually!

I am not sure about the timing of this, but I think you will have finished with the dentist by time you read this.
