    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'm so afraid of going

    but I need to go. I have to find out what's wrong with me so I can get on with my life. I haven't cut because I knew I was going to go to the doctors soon.. Well today's the day.. I hope we get into a car accident on the way there and I die.

    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...

    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?

    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.

    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"!

    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...
