So, I went to the dentist for the first time in a decade today.

My parents took me to the dentist twice as a kid. When I got old enough to be handling my own health affairs, just not having a history of dental care made me not think of it a whole lot. Even during my undergrad, when I had student coverage.

Now that I'm doing my masters and have coverage again, I was like "shit, I should stop sitting on this." No reason I should just let inertia dictate my own choices. It was also motivated by a post on CPTSD forum (not that I think I have that, but a lot of people who have it also have ACEs, so I've got enough in common with them to get something out of reading the content) reminding everybody who had kinda rough childhoods to go to the dentist.

This is the first time I have ever benefited from an "I don't know who needs to hear this right now" post.
