The dentist can sit while YOU suffer?

1 Comment

I went to the dentist.

He virtually turned the chair upside down – well I was upside down! I said “I hate this. I’m not going to lie like this! I want to sit up please”

So he rolled me up. “Why do you do that? I’m virtually upside down! I can’t breathe like that and I can’t swallow properly either! Last time I was put in that position I vowed it would never happen again.”

So he fixed my teeth with me in the Yoga Fish Position. God it was uncomfortable. There was no back support, no neck support because I am very small – short really, I should say. So the chair does not fit ME.

I complained. Fish is no good, upside-down is no good.

But I feel compelled to tell you why he wanted me upside down.

The reason the dentist turns you upside down is so HE CAN SIT!

Well, not on MY appointment! Uh uh. Sod that.

And the next time I go, I’m taking cushions….

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!
