I hate hospitals! I hate going to the doctor for a check up because I hate hearing a bad diagnosis. When my mom was sick before, we had to go back and forth to at least 3 doctors for bi-weekly check-ups. Whenever we go to the hospital, I dreaded hearing something bad. I know that this “phobia” was brought on by the fact that my brother was diagnosed with leukemia when he was taken to the hospital to have his stomach cramps checked. 6 months after being diagnosed with leukemia, he died. I accompanied by mom for a check-up because she was always complaining about cramps where her kidneys were located. She was diagnosed with Amyloidosis, a rare kidney disease bordering on cancer. She died after 3 years of battling it.
So tell me, is this fear valid or not?!?
