My filling that fell out needed to be replaced with a full crown. *sigh* I tried to be tough but I cried because they had to do the roof-of-the-mouth numbing, and you know how I am about needles. I have a new dentist - my original dentist mysteriously disappeared, and I said a little atheist prayer for her, because I think she got very sick. But I was afraid to ask.

I reached out for a calming visualization and for some reason I imagined pulling on a stout rope, feeling its fibers in my hands. It didn't matter what was at the other end of the rope, I was just counting, hand over hand, feeling every detail, engaging the senses to distract from whatever the hell was going on in my mouth. I am sure this rope image is a direct result of piratical influence. :)
