Have been trying to control the emotions that got a boost by the pain. I was aware and prepared for all of it but when I actually faced it…grrr..it was so bad that I could not control my cry..the tears bedazzled in my eyes..and I clutched the arms of the chair with applying all the force I had in me ! But the voice of her around me was so caring that it let me carry on for those 30 mins of the dental treatment !
Here her means my dentist. I had visited her 4 years back for the RC treatment of another tooth and it was mind blowing expereince with the doc. We became friends in no more than 2 sittings and rest of the sittings were amazingly enjoyable-despite of the cruel treatment that I was undergoing !
Today I visited her after the 4 years gap and to my surprise she not only recognized me but she had clear memories of what all we used to talk and all that. I honestly thought she would take at least a minute to remember my face and then once she’ll recollect she would give a smile and an expression of having an old patient coming back to her..that’s that ! But, she did exactly the opposite of this…remembering to the extent that she also told me that she used to like one my salwar-suits a lot and do I still have it or discarded…. !!
I’m glad. Why because she being a doctor,a very successful doctor,gets so many patients day in day out..and four years is a big time ! For me it’s only one doc to remember but for her there are 100s of patients..but she has everything stored scathless in her memory disk !
After that usual catching-up chat we moved to the disgusting task..the treatment ! And now for next few days I’ll be undergoing this pain-a forced one-since I did not pay attention to my dear tooth when it ached for that first time !
But on the other hand I’m glad that I met the doc again and that she is perfect in handling the tooth.She keeps talking to me to take my attention away from the terror ! Some people really make things better.. ! I’m glad to have met her 🙂
You know what’s crossing my mind right now ? Only one feeling…
After every happy holiday you will find something to be gloomy about !
And I just got my reason to feel pensive 😦
