I honestly don’t know what’s wrong with me. Every time I look in the mirror or brush my teeth, I’m so aware of how badly I need to start flossing. But for some reason, I just can’t bring myself to do it. Why is that? I know it’s not that hard to floss. I know it would take me about five minutes to find where my floss is the first time, and from then on it’d take me about thirty extra seconds after I brush my teeth to get them fully clean. 

I also know how important it is to clean between my teeth. That’s why I don’t understand why I don’t do it. Logically, I’m all for flossing and I want to floss. But I can’t physically bring myself to do it. Flossing is so easy and is one of the best preventative dental treatments people can do at home, so why don’t I?! Sorry, I sound like a broken record, but I’m just so bemused and disappointed with myself.  

I need the people who read this blog to inspire me to floss. When I’m staring at myself in the mirror after just having brushed my teeth, how do I find the strength to go and find the floss instead of going back and sitting on the couch? I don’t know if this helps with advice at all but I live in Cheltenham. Dentists near me are really easy to book into, but I don’t think I actually need a dentist at the moment. I think I may need, like, a mental health expert to help me learn how to stop procrastinating. Unless you guys can do that! That would probably save me hundreds of dollars which I’d obviously like.  

I promise I’ll be reading all your comments very closely. I know I should probably just use that time I’ll spend reading your comments looking for my floss, or even going to the shops to buy floss, but once again, I can’t bring myself to do it.
