Sarah @thedotterypotter so pleased your getting some relief from the terrible pain you were in, now, all you have to do is keep taking those tablets and keep up with your dentist appointments, never let it get to that stage again. This is the start of your new life, soon, you won’t be too scared to live… let me tell you a story, it may or may not help, and isn’t connected with the dentists either. Gradually, as my children were born, I became more and more scared of driving. It just seemed easier to hand the keys over to my other half, whilst I made sure they were all ok in the back. And after 4 children, I seemed to completely give up, apart from driving locally within about 15 minutes of my home. So, at least they all got to school, clubs and the like. This must have happened over a period of around 18 years. Then one day, I thought to myself, ‘I’m scared to live’ and ‘this is so life limiting’ so I decided to do something about it. And, with the help of my partner, every single time we went out, I drove, motorways, cities, anything and everything. All weather conditions. I gained back my confidence, until, just before our main holiday, the 7 seater died. And with the loan of my Dads car we were still able to go away, albeit in two cars. Fortunately, I knew the route well, but by the time we reached our halfway stop, I realised I was so incredibly tense that my jaw ached. I sucked a mint and thought to myself, well I got that far… after that, it was a breeze, I started to enjoy driving again. I started to go all over the place, very often on my own. Up and down the motorway, driving in cities, and in the countryside. I have visited so many people and places, nothing has held me back. So, I hope this has shown you, that you have started on your journey to living life again. It takes time, it’s horribly stressful at times (believe me, if I did drink, I may have had one, even if I was driving) I used to get so worked up, I would sweat and panic before I left, and yet, I would not let him take over the driving. It is now around 10 years since I turned my life around, start yours today.
