    I Used To Be...

    I was raised by very prudish, modest parents. Because I was only taken to see a doctor when I was either sick or needed shots, I never got used to going to a doctor. The only ones allowed to see me naked were my parents, and that ended about the time I turned 13. When I was...

    Uh yeah. My dad hasn't

    even seen me naked since I was like 6. I can't stand when a doctor acts like it's a normal thing to just walk into a room and get told to drop your pants. Maybe the doctor is used to it but It's not his/her body that is getting exposed.

    I never thought twice about going to the Dr

    or undressing ect... But my last gyno appt I had a new Dr. She walked in and I instantly liked her. Then she did my annual examine as she pulled her finger out she asked me to squeeze down. I almost cam right there. Now when hubby is in the mood and I'm not I think about...

    It's a scary place anyway,

    because of the speculum. You are at your most vulnerable. You are there to enquire after your most intimate health. Decisions here affect everything about you.

    After being taken to the examination room

    Yeah, I feel this way.

    Every time I go to the doctor's office. My step mom is a health freak and a nudist into health food and stuff like that. Since I can remember I go every year on her request to see our doctor. Our doctor is a friend of my step mom and so I get the works. I thought that the...

    I don't mind visiting the doctor's office

    when the need calls for it. I don't even mind undressing there because I know that it's standard procedure depending on what the visit is for. But when I was younger, I would've rather gone to visit a relative I didn't like than go to a doctor's visit, especially when puberty...

    When I was a kid I always associated the doctor

    I have always tried to stick to female doctors

    especially since I got married (my husband is not keen on me seeing a male doctor) and I usually go with a friend, but even so I hate undressing.

    It's always, "How did you get this scar?

    " And I just have to lie. I'll say, "Soccer game gone bad." or, "I fell." I try my best to cover the scars on my face as it is... You can clearly see my ribcage. The doctors say, "You should eat more protein, sugar, blah, blah, blah." I eat twice my body-weight in butter every...
