I have to get a physical for my new part-time job. Have never liked physicals but now I think I know why. It's not that a doctor ever did anything to me, it's the getting touched part, especially for the hernia exam. I really hate that part. Am just thinking I could try to dissociate during the whole thing, and it's a new doc so should tell her something about my past, in case I trigger. I don't think I have to tell her much, but this is the first time I'll ever have told a doctor about "it". Just not sure what to say or if trying to dissociate is a good idea, maybe that's something to get away from.
