I Always Feel Nervous Undressing At The Doctors

    I have been to the family doctor

    and the pediatrician several times and although I know they are very fine people i always feel anxious. I am afraid that I'll get a b*ner when I have to undress (that happens all the time), and because of that anxiety I wet my pants a bit :-(

    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...

    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...

    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 was also very very nervous

    as I was last week at a dermatoligist. I was there at the first time in my life and I had to undress complete. I was nervous and later on embarrased. I checked every centimeter of my body

    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...

    My father always accompanies me to the doctor.

    When I have to disrobe it is in front of them. I am allowed to leave my diaper on until the doctor is going to look inside or needs to touch me there.

    I go to the doctors every year

    for a physical and I have to take off all my clothes except my diaper. Even though my doctor is very nice and has seen me in diapers since I was a baby I always get nervous and self-conscious when I undress for the nurses.

    Well, not so much nervous

    as uncomfortable. I have had trauma from my past. If you read my featured story-called I got hurt saving a wolf-you'll understand. But it ALWAYS makes me uncomfortable.

    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.

    My doctor here in Paris is an older guy,

    and I've seen how he looks at me when I slip off my clothes for an internal examination. I get nervous, which might sound strange, not just for this reason however, doctors are scary people!
