#lifewiththegillians – January 25, 2015

Posted on January 27, 2015 by Slim

There’s really not much to report this week, despite the longest video we’ve ever uploaded!

All is really well! We both feel great and are enjoying our recently revisited flexibility, as well as the benefits from eating super clean again. I’ve found myself with so much energy again; too much, at times, it seems.

I’ve always been apprehensive about going to the dentist. Since I didn’t know what to expect, I’ve always been a bit nervous on account of seeing a pretty traumatic dentist appointment go awry with my brother when we were younger. Sadly, he found out the hard way that he was allergic to the anesthetic they used and his visit ended with an ambulance ride to the the hospital.

Couple that with the horror stories that I hear from the apparent disdain for the dentist and the astronomical bills I hear about from my friends, I was genuinely uninterested in passing the threshold of one of these torture factories, despite the fact that I desperately need some work done.

Fortunately, a new insurance plan at Laura’s work made it possible for me to obtain dental insurance.

Yesterday, I went to the dentist for the first time. I think I was noticeably a bit on edge. The staff truly went WAY above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and as if I was part of the family there. After a thorough exam, I’ve been scheduled for an emergency surgery to extract four of my teeth next Monday. I’m sure that will make for a rough week, but hopefully I can still plug through it and stay on track!

Wish me luck, friends!!

Peace, snugs, and MEGA love,
