Anyone else terrified of the doctor and tests?
« on: December 19, 2013, 04:09:57 PM »
I am terrified of the doctor but need to go for a few reasons.  They are normal check-up sort of reasons (pap, mole check, dental stuff) but I'm so afraid they're going to need to biopsy something and I will be incredibly anxious while waiting for the results.  Anyone else have this issue?  I seriously think I have cancer lurking in every corner of my body and it's only a matter of time before a doctor tells me I am going to die soon.

Yes ME!

I think instead of having health anxiety i have test result anxiety! I hate WAITING for test results and scan results etc I found the whole process so awful and i avoid them which then makes me feel worse! Its a vicious cycle! I understand!

Im due my Pap too and Im freaking out about it though each time it has come back normal...this time i just think it wont!

My husband thinks im crazy he says "its only a TEST" wish I had this confidence!

Your not alone hun I fear this too! Its silly really isnt it!
