Daughter is having a tough time this summer. She adjusted to the move OK - and she's even looking forward to starting high school at my alma mater. But before school starts she's getting braces; so far she's had x-rays, impressions, and spacers, and now she has the bands on her lower molars. The rest of the braces and an expander go on August 11 - she's NOT looking forward to it. She hates dental procedures and everything associated with them. She thinks the dentist and orthodontist are evil men (they are actually quite nice). They've never done anything to hurt her, but it's just a thing with her. A thing I actually understand. But still a thing she has to deal with.
Also, this morning she had to go get a shot! She needed a Tdap booster before she can start school this year, so today was the day. Again, she was less than thrilled about it. Of course it was over in an instant and the only side effect is a little soreness. But it's not the way she would have chosen to kick off her weekend for sure.
Let's hope she doesn't have to endure any other torturous activities for quite a while! The anxiety may just send her over the edge!
I Could Use Less Excitement, Too
