*UPDATE* Things went relatively well at the dentist office...whew!
This is a particularly calm and contemplative card for this Friday. Using my Earth Magic Oracle Cards app, I pulled a single card for today. I guess this is good advice. I feel a bit tense today because I have to take my daughter to the dentist to get a cavity filled, which may be a bit deep.
Ugh. I have been working on improving her diet and dental hygiene, but this one needs to be filled and I am not looking forward to it. They will play a movie for her and she may have to get a stainless steel crown (ugh), which is rather visible, but it is only a baby tooth, and I am working on really cutting out carbs and sugars, adding more nutrient-rich foods, and making sure she brushes and flosses regularly.
I also plan to add more bone broths in 2014 for their benefit to dental and bone health. In any event, no one loves going to the dentist. I wish I could afford a biological dentist, but alas I can only afford mainstream. But I will do my best to get her to take good care of her teeth and her general health, as dental health often reflects the overall health of the person, from my own, fairly considerable research on the topic.
I'll admit it right now: I kinda hate doctors of all kinds in general. Partially because I don't always agree with their stance on many things, but also for the feeling of powerlessness they seem to have over me, of being an 'authority', even though I realize the brunt of every decision still always lies with me, the parent. I know many, many parents other than me feel the same way about healthcare stuff, no matter what they're encountering.
Lots of Love and Peace,
