What types of profession unconsciously inflict fear or anxiety? I’d probably list the following:

  1. Doctor
  2. Dentist
  3. Police

Do you agree?

LH Prime Cebu agrees that there are certain types of profession that do not necessarily inflict fear, but would certainly cause anxiety in us. This is why LH Prime Cebu devotes this article in helping you overcome fear as you schedule an appointment and see your doctor.

More often than not, the fear is psychological. The thought of a doctor, incites illness, pain, possible sickness. We feel like a little child who got caught ‘stealing from the cookie jar’, so to speak. You know that there have been times when you forgot to take the needed medication. You could also think of a time when you felt pain in certain parts of your body, and went without consulting a doctor. Now, that there is the ‘needed’ time for you to visit the doctor, the anxiety builds up. So how can you lessen the fear, just like conquering your fear of going through a medical exam in Cebu?

  1. Have a good night’s sleep – many people do not believe in the power of getting a good night’s sleep. In all honesty, a good 8-9 hours of sleep will always do wonders. Your body would be well rested plus your brain is going to be functioning at its optimum.
  2. Talk to someone – talking is always a good sedative. It has a calming effect that allows the person to voice out concerns, whether thought of or not. At the same time, it would also allow the other person to pacify you.
  3. Be physically and mentally prepared – like anything, you need to be prepared with whatever your doctor might be requesting from you. It can be a series of tests in a diagnostic clinic in Cebu. This doesn’t automatically mean anything. Look at it from a positive point of view and see it as ‘prevention is better than cure’.

Seeing a doctor and getting yourself checked is always a good sign. It means that you are healthy and you just need to make sure that you maintain it. Don’t wait for the time when the illness is too severe and thousands upon thousands of pesos would be paid monthly just for your maintenance medication. So love yourself. Keep yourself healthy and be conscious of your diet. At your age, you should know that your body has changes are you get older.
