Went to the dentist for a cleaning. Took a tranq first.

Hygienist had an assistant who used a retractor. The Rectactor handed me the sucking tool. Hygienist cleaned while Rectractor Assistant kept my mouth open. I am known for trying to keep my mouth closed.

So every few seconds one pushed my hands to my mouth to suck out the water. I felt like an unpaired volunteer.

Now the scary part is my blood pressure at the start was 142 over 74 at the end they retook it and it was a normal 97 over 67. I tend to average in the 100s to 115 at the normal high. 142 was exceedingly high for me.

Then they handed me a bill of 190 dollars which I handed to my mother. I suspect her blood pressure went up.

I go back in July. Dentist wants me to go every 3 to 4 months.

It did prove how stressed I am going to the dentist.
