    I’ve mostly had some really bad experiences with doctors. Misdiagnosis etc. So yeah, that has made me a bit wary of doctors. I’m more scared of hospitals though.
    Happy AtoZing!

    LOL @ 20 pleas from the dentist and 100 pleas from mom πŸ˜€
    Doctors and Dentists scare you sooo much, eh?!? I have never visited a dentist for myself but my son loves his visits to the dentist and sits patiently all through the procedures.

      My niece loves them too. Apparently, her doctor uncle gives her a toffee at the end for being a good girl and that is enough motivation for her πŸ™‚ Sweet and innocent childhood πŸ™‚

    I was like that. Got a lot of drilling done on my teeth when I was young. Luckily they all fell and healthy ones came out. Operation on tooth sounds horrible… Like one of those saw movies. Glad the pain receded.

    • swathishenoy says:

      I got those drillings done too! Sadly one of them was my permanent tooth!
      And about operation, they said it is for removing the tooth. Whatever it was, I am glad it is over and I don’t have to go back!

    I’m not afraid of visiting doctors or dentists, but what I want is company when I go to them! Since childhood, I’ve always visited a doctor with my father and even today, if I am in the city, I go with him! I don’t like going alone, at all! I just want someone by my side whenever I’m visiting!

    It was fun to read your tales, Swathi πŸ˜›

  12. This is such a candid post and yeah I too dread visiting any doctor. Last weak I visited a new one for a chronic pain which isn’t going and had another nightmare. I am so like you with doctors πŸ˜›

  13. Ha ha ha. Not me but my best friend is shit scared of doctors. And dentists are no different for her. But yes, when I got to get my tooth drilled and filled up, I was little uncertain whether i liked dentists then. LOL

    I’m not a fan of the dentist either so I share your pain.

  15. Oh, tell me about it! I’m scared as hell of dentists. I once had a panic attack in a dentist’s chair when I was about to have my wisdom tooth extracted! It took me so much time to calm down!

      If I go to get my tooth extracted, this is exactly what will happen to me! Then the Dentists Association will ban me forever from visiting any dentists, given my history with them πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

  16. Vinodini says:

    I was scared of injections, as a child. I hated the smell of hospitals and did all I could to stay away. You’ve grown into a brave girl, I must say. πŸ™‚

    Dentists scare us all. “100 pleas from mom” πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Moms make everything possible!
    Hope we don’t have to visit dentists!

  19. Will be really tough for me as a doctor to say that I’m scared of docs πŸ™‚
    But there is a true fact – we doctors make the worst patients! πŸ˜€
    Also, I still would advice you to get those wisdom chompers out if they are causing pain. I had all of them removed and see, my wisdom is totally fine!

      Hehe πŸ˜€ You wouldn’t be scared of one, I am sure πŸ™‚
      And about the tooth, the pain is gone. Even if it was causing pain, it would have stopped after you left to put the mobile in fridge πŸ˜‰

  20. That was so hilarious and well written !! I loved it and I am gonna come back for next . πŸ™‚
    You are most welcome at my site too.

  21. I was really scared of dentists when I was a kid. After the 2 year torture of having braces which meant visiting the dentist regularly, I’m even more scared. Though I once wanted to be a doctor, I’m really scared about going to the doctor! Even when I am sick my mom has to yell, shout, plead me to go to the doctor!

  22. I remember hating the dentist when I was a kid but I’m not bothered by them now. Doctors themselves don’t bother me, but I hate sitting in the waiting rooms – I tend to imagine all of the germs that are floating around there

    I am scared of needles tbp. It doesn’t matter if the needles is going in my skin or someone else’s, I cringe even with the thought of it. I hate the hospitals as well. Doctors, they remind you of miserable diseases, I guess :p I hate dentists the most! Anything that concerns oral health can induce nightmares :p

      Same here Anmol. Even if someone else is getting an injection, I cringe at the sight!! I can never control my expressions, no matter how much I try!

    That reminds me of my wisdom tooth eruption pain, but my dentist dealt with the situation smartly! The long suffering of 4 days vanished within few minutes. Still I always try to escape even the normal visits. Loved reading the post!
