There’s nothing more stressful than going to the dentist’s office, in my opinion! I have never had an enjoyable experience at a doctor’s appointment before in my life.
They all generally go the same way.
I arrive at the perfect time to fill out paperwork and be prepared for my appointment, I sit down in the waiting room, and nobody talks to me again for over an hour. I freeze my rear off sitting in their air conditioned office, wondering why the air conditioning system is turned up to level 11 around all of these sick people. Well, these days it’s even more nerve-wracking to attend a doctor’s appointment. With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging on, I don’t feel comfortable putting myself in the same indoor air as a bunch of sick people who are breathing their respiratory contamination into the room, and last year I had no choice however to attend a doctor’s appointment for a small respiratory irritation. I knew that the powerful cooling system in the waiting room wasn’t making me feel any better as my sinuses continued to dry out in the cold, artificial indoor air. The other thing that was genuinely bothering me was the sound of my dentist hacking her lungs out which carried perfectly through the expensive HVAC duct system. I never thought I would say this, but now I wish they would have turned up the AC unit. No, I didn’t want to have more cold, dry air shoved into my lungs. However, I also did not want to hear her sickly coughing leading up to my appointment.
