Being Brave

I've been to the dentist and as usual, it was painless. But what is weird is the time compression that occurs while I'm asleep. Or not asleep, really. I hear things and I answer questions. But I don't remember much of what went on. This dentist uses IV Deep Conscious Sedation with the use of the drug triazolam. It works and time flies!

I didn't have a conscious fear of dentistry, but… except for one dentist, many years ago, I've never looked forward to the visit. Was it fear of pain? Maybe; I do know that having any major work done now without IV Deep Conscious Sedation would require some bravery on my part.
