    Everything About It.

    The smell of a doctors office, and the sound of the paper beds...  UGH!  It reminds me of being a kid and nearly everytime I went to the doctor I had to get a shot.  I feared shots so bad.  One time my parents and a bunch of nurses had to carry me...

    Trying Being Fear Less

    I had my share and the results of it all is that I fear of doctors.  I'm not saying they are all bad cause that would be a big fat lie.  I'm afraid if I need going to a physician and I don't know anyone who have been to them I will boil inside, be anxious...

    The Results

      I don't so much, fear the doctor- but the results that I go for. What if I go for something simple, and i get back test results for something that's more complicated?

    I Stay Away

    I just don't do them, I am never ill, never had a day sick, I keep fit, eat healthy foods, I've never had a work medical examination, and refused to have one at school, my body, my business, not my body to create revenue for over zealous Doctors to reel me in for unnecessary...

    Dreams

    (sorry for spelling/grammer errors.) Oh, and you may notice a slight resemblance to Soul Eater. I have a serious phobia of Stein so my friend dared me to write a book about him and have it published. My next step after this is to publish this and hand a copy to my friend. Let me...

    I have the mentality

    where I keep telling myself that everything is okay, it doesn't hurt too bad, and it will go away soon. I've been pretty sick before to the point where everyone is telling me I need to go to the doctor. And I always insist it's not that bad and im starting to feeling better lol...

    Doctor's appointments always make me super

    nervous, because I fear it will be yet another "I don't know what's wrong with you and I'm not going to try to find out because it's probably just all in your head" experience. When I had a stroke it took over a year to get it diagnosed, and even once diagnosed, they didn't...

    Very Suprisingly, It's One of My Worst Fears!!!!

    Before the accident, just the thought of hospitals made me get a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. As a child, I would be so scared of doctors to the point I would never let one touch me. I don't know what brought this fear, but it was a known fact that I would NEVER take the...

    I Fear Going to the Doctor

    My fear is a little different, I always fear that the doctor will not really listen to me and help me get better. For instance, I went to the doctor recently and told him that I have had pain for 8 weeks, I showed him the location of the pain, there is swelling also. This is...

    It's a Pain

    I don't have a fear of my Doctor.  He's actually a nice man.  But...What I do fear is all the pain that is inflicted on you for the medical tests and proceedures with the final testing results and diagnosis of "Your Doing Fine"!

    Fear Of Doctors

    I have a fear of doctors. I feel like I can't trust them. Getting a simple medical check up scares me because it is tense. Doctors make me feel nervous inside because I am afraid that they will find something wrong with me.
