This is a question The nicest thing someone's ever done for me

In amongst all the tales of bitterness and poo, we occasionally get fluffy stories that bring a small tear to our internet-jaded eyes.

In celebration of this, what is the nicest thing someone's done for you? Whether you thoroughly deserved it or it came out of the blue, tell us of heartwarming, selfless acts by others.

Failing that, what nice things have you done for other people, whether they liked it or not?

I am phobic of Dentists
The pain of broken teeth is not new to me, but I would rather stick my head in a wasp nest than visit a dentist... Until today.

I broke another tooth in my already imperfect smile and was distraught. My fear of the Dentist spans years and brings with it a dark and hateful loathing of all things mouth related.

Carol my better (and more sensible half) arranged for me to see a kind compassionate Dentist and drove me there too. I lost the ability to speak as we approached the entrance and I began to breath hard as fear clutched at my soul. Carol held my hand and kept me in control.

Then I had to sit in that fucking chair. Carol continued to hold my hand and communicate for me to the Dentist, who was a very nice South African woman. Despite not having been to the Dentist for twenty years I only need to have two fillings and two cracked wisdom teeth removed.

Filling number one was done for me today, as I held Carol's hand and I will admit cried with terror. Half way through the process I caught Carol's eye and she whispered "I love you" at me and I knew I could cope.

Filling done and tooth now capped I walked out of there £50 lighter and mouth numb. I am having to go into Hospital to have the wisdom teeth done because my phobia is so strong I will need to be put under and Carol is going to take me to that one aswell.

So thank you to my new Dentist, who I did like, despite not being able to speak. However a huge thank you must go to Carol who had to put up with my nightmares, awful mood this morning and having her hand crushed in mine.

Thank you Carol, I love you so very much.

These days, dentists're great.
My last dentist once deliberately asked me questions when my mouth was propped wide open, then said 'Sorry, I don't understand Klingon!'
Still makes me giggle to think about it.

Dentists *shudder*
Although I'm a lot better now and don't walk out of the dentist's office anymore.

The fear of losing my teeth outways the fear of dentist surgeries now.
