I am male, 23 and so terrified to have much needed dental work done. Like a lot of people, I have anxiety rooting back from childhood. Unfortunately, my anxiety is so severe and physical, just going near a dental office or hearing about someone going to the dentist makes me sick to my stomach and light headed.I hate thinking about going to an appointment, I get so scared. I have one bad tooth that will probably need to come out soon, some days are very painful. I'm so embarrassed about my issues, that this is my first attempt at reaching out to someone, so any advice is appreciated. To be honest, it helps just typing these words, so thanks for listening.
