I'm afraid of the dentist...I was born unluckily with crappy British teeth, possibly due to the lack of fluoride in our water in NI. Though saying that, I could be dealing with other issues today if there had been fluoride in our water..who knows...
So, I'm off to the dentist on Thursday to have a filling changed as I broke the top of it off just before Christmas and have had a temp filling in place since then. The way I see it, I have 2 choices....go the the dentist twice (this week and next) for 45mins each and get it fixed properly now or chicken out and wait until the temporary one falls out and then go back. I'd love to choose my 2nd option, but how stupid would I be!! Then I started think, what would I rather do...go to the dentist or have a colonoscopy....surprisingly and weirdly enough ...I'd rather have a colonoscopy...see I told hate going to the dentist, but I'm going to go and do what I have to do (one this occasion anyway :D)
The steroids are still doing their job on the 5 month UC flare-up front and surprisingly I'm quite happy these days...stressed with French life and their bureaucracy, but otherwise happy. I'm down to 30mgs now and have I reckon about 6 weeks left on the preds before I'm back only on an maintenance drug.
We're off home to Australia in a few weeks and so far the stress of flying has not built up. I've been crap with flying ever since I had kids...no idea why..it's totally irrational, especially since I used to love flying.
Lets see how I'm doing when I get back :D ... I'm hoping to be down to 10mgs and on the steroid free home straight again :D
