so the title of the post pretty much speaks for itself. i'm a 40 year old woman who is terrified of doctors. so much so that i haven't seen one in well over a decade now. not a doctor, dentist, OBGYN, nothing. but i'm also incredibly fearful of anything health related. as an example, i have a toothache that almost brought me to my knees last night and most people would just run to the dentist and get things sorted out. with me, i am more scared of the dentist than i am the toothache......although the toothache was something i wouldn't wish on my worst enemy if i even have one.
so i am curious if there's anyone else like me. i don't take medicines. not even OTC stuff. i don't see doctors or dentists, but yet i have horrible health anxiety.
