My Biggest Fear, what's yours?

Ever since a child and started going to the dentist, I have been totally afraid of going there. When I was growing up they did not give anesthetic and I felt every little thing the dentist did and the drill felt like it could dig a hole in the streets. Of course being a child things seemed so much bigger and scarier than they really were. To this day I still have the fear of going to the dentist but I do it because I have to. Today is going to be one of those days as I broke a tooth and being we are going away next week I knew I could not put this off any longer. My heart is racing but I know this has to be done. I'm a big girl now.

seems everyone is afraid of them. i think because they don't seem to work in a hospital at all which is scary enough. but most of us have had bad experiences with some. when i was a child they put me to sleep once but i really wasn't asleep and could feel the whole thing but could not tell them i felt it. been afraid ever since

I have never been afraid of the dentist...as a matter of fact when I needed filling I begged for no Novocaine. I get my bones/gums scrapped every three months and it's uncomfortable but nothing I need Novocaine for. Years ago I had a sinus operation they gave me 20 shots of Novocaine under my upper lip (inside( and proceeded to go all the way up to my sinus cavity in my forehead to remove a polyp. That's why I don't want any more of it

My greatest fear upto now is syringes!!!whether its a prick or a shot am to be given;I always ask for time out. There was a time i was terribly sick and the nurse had to call two other nurses for me to be injected.I did give them a hard time

I don't have any fears of needles. When I started working on cruise ships as a hair dresser I actually had to get lots of shots for all the different countries I was going into. I had so many that I had to have my mom help me dress and carry my suitcases as my arms were so sore from all the shots. Now I can take one any time without a worry.
