I Have a Fear of Doctors

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 108 People

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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?

    Never fear, fear its self. The only thing stronger than fear is hope. If you have hope you will never have fear unless you want fear.
