I really hate wearing a mask. It restricts my breathing. Masks get hot, get dirty, and you can’t even tell if someone is smiling at you (or not). They are a bother to remember, replace and stash or wash.
I cannot believe we are forced to wear them again.
I also truly hate needles. I have a fear of them and have most of my life. I went without quality dentistry for a long time and still, even now, have lingering post traumatic stress from an incident when I was 12 and was being drilled on with no painkiller by a sadistic dentist.
I don’t trust doctors much. They’ve been wrong about my family, friends and me many, many times. Those wrong diagnoses have caused me untold heartache and stress.
