Anytime there's a doctor's appointment looming on the horizon, I get a little worked up. Someone once mentioned "white coat syndrome," which I thought was a load of crap until I saw the white coat enter the room and I felt my blood pressure start to spike.
Is there anyone else who experiences a little anxiety before going to the doctor? And I'm not talking just endocrinologist/diabetes-related appointments. I mean the dentist, the primary care physician, the gynocologist (I realize only half of you can comment on that), the eye doctor ... anyone!
Does "white coat syndrome" affect anyone else but my neurotic self? ;)
(And, unrelated, does anyone want a small gray cat that apparently thinks it's cool to chew on my face in the middle of the night? I'll mail her to your house if you want. Free of charge.)
