What actually happened is that I felt increasingly ill all morning, went to the dentist, threw up, rescheduled, and went home. I'm pretty sure that was the bastard child of stress, an illness I may or may not have been fighting all week, irritable bowel syndrome, and of course anxiety about dental treatment.
At least my dental office is compassionate enough to not bill the late cancellation fee in circumstances like this.
