    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...

    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?

    Monster In The White Coat

    I was never a fan of going to the doctors even if it meant a free ticket out of school😊. The long white lab coats, that 'hospital scent ' that makes your belly flop, and even the sound of those damn latex gloves smacking against their wrists. I've always expected to hear bad...

    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...

    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"!
