Four Replies to Dentists....what's up with that? And other random stuff.

Dentists: I'm also frustrated with dentists. The last time I went to one around here, first they wouldn't see me because I had once been diagnosed with a minor arrythmia. They said some of the plaque they loosen could get into my bloodstream and stop my heart. Wouldn't that be true of anyone with normal heart rhythm if it's true for me? I told them the original diagnosis was overruled and another doctor found nothing wrong after extensive tests, but no good. I had to get prescription blood-thinners and come back a month later. (Of course, I had to pay for the visit.) When I returned, she told me my gums looked bloody; well duh, I see them every night in the bathroom mirror. She began to touch them gingerly with the pick, then said she couldn't go on because she was afraid of hurting me. Lady, I brush aggressively every night and occasionally get a little blood; trust me, you're not going to hurt me unless you pull out a drill. She told me to come back in a month and gave me a prescription for some fancy liquid medication; I was supposed to dilute it with water and soak my brush for so long every night before brushing, etc etc. When I got the bill, I said that's it. All I wanted was a cleaning in the first place. I haven't been back. That was about six months ago, so I should find another one before long, but it won't be that one again. I never even saw the actual dentist.

As for Christmas, I too was unprepared for the onslaught of CHRISTMAS!! when I walked into Target on November 2nd for a quick purchase. I don't blame them, because they're a business and they're going where the money is. Toys R Us takes a loss ten months a year and still makes an annual profit because November and December earn them so much money. But that doesn't mean that it's not annoying, the sensation of being clobbered with ubiquitous holiday sights & sounds everywhere you go. I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings like I unintentionally did last year, so this is all I plan to say on the subject.
