I left the dentist, and I had to make a number of calls because I felt really sad and scared. So I called my partner at the time, and I told her. Because I was also worried from a vanity point of view that it might affect her. She was exceptionally supportive and she told me not to be silly. Which was nice. Then I called a few friends and I told them. And I immediately sensed their support and love, and that made me feel much calmer
