    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...

    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...

    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...

    I never get nervous, doctors have seen it all.

    I actually wished I had more reasons to get naked at the doctors.

    It was really bad for me

    when I was in middle school and high school. I always hated undressing for the nurses who always seemed to be young and cute. Plus until I was an adult I never even got to wear the gown... Just my underwear.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    When I was a kid I always associated the doctor

    Check Your Modesty At The Door
