Anyone have any bad phobias? Like other than spiders/snakes?
My worst one is doctors... when was the last time you went to the doctor? Or the dentist?
For me, here's a timeline -
1992 - My last visit to the dentist... no cavities then, still think I have healthy teeth. I threw up when they put "drainer" in my mouth and haven't been back since.
1995 - My last visit to a doctor... had mono, so I had to go. Got even more sick when I got to the doctor... when they drew blood I puked and had the dry heaves for at least 20 minutes.
1997 - Went to the emergency room to have my right knee drained after it swelled up the size of a pumpkin (had surgery on it in 1994, and in 1997 it suddenly swelled up). I threw up when they put the needle in my knee.
1999 - Blood drives... these make me sick as hell. My wife wanted to give blood in college, I went with her and before the nurse even got the needle out, I got sick. Ran to the bathroom and was sick for over an hour. Even fainted at a blood drive in high school in 1995 watching a different girlfriend give blood. I actually turned green and they wanted to call an ambulance.
Straight up, I'm scared of doctors and dentists. I don't go. I can get sick with the flu, puke for a week, have a 102 temperature for days, etc and not go. My wife gets very mad at me. I basically hate needles... mainly drawing blood. If I have to get blood work done, I get sick for days in advance and several days after... always sick to my stomach (even typing this makes me woozy). I lose sleep over it and have bad dreams because I dwell on it. I'd rather if a doctor needed blood, to break my nose and get it that way.
Anyone else have this phobia? Or any other phobias?
