I Can't Handle Needles

I have never liked them, but I have found ways to handle having to get shots and things. But now i'm terrified because I have to get Novocaine to fill a cavity. I have no idea how I am going to handle having a needle stuck repeatedly in my face. I'm having nightmares and everything.

i had to get my tooth filled, its very uncomfortable, but if the dentist puts the Novocaine on the gums before using the needle it shouldnt hurt too much if at all, but it will feel really puffy and uncomfortable, like getting punched in the mouth except for the pain. <br />

of course this was last year lol, so you already know this, but yeah thought i would comment. i hate needles too, and when i saw that needle im thinking "nuh uh your not sticking that in my mouth" but it wasn't as bad as i thought it would be, but i surely wouldnt want to go through that again.
