Part of the reason I hate going to the doctors is I hate having my personal space invaded. I realize it’s a necessary part of it. But I really hate going to the ENT. Back story. Last Tuesday I woke up with my uvula swollen up like a cherry. In retrospect, it was kinda funny. At the time, not so much. So I went to my idiot GP who told me I had tonsillitis (funny seeing I had mine taken out as a teenager), gave me a bunch of pills, a shot and told me to drink warm water. Korean doctors are obsessed with warm water, not just water, warm water. I drank cold. It felt better on my sore throat. I also went out and bought a humidifier which definitely has helped with thing.
Friday,not being all that much better, I went to an ENT. He’s a strange goose in his own regard. I hate his chair and the damn head rest.. I hate how close he has to get to see. Today really sucked. He’s decided I have an acute sinus infection with really sticky mucus and post nasal drip. Well, duh. I could have told him that. So he numbs up my throat and literally takes a little vacuum cleaner to it. I get he wanted to get the junk out, but I eventually (like after 90 seconds) of this, pushed him away. I couldn’t take it anymore. I couldn’t breathe and I felt on the verge of panic. Then to make things more fun, he took the same vacuum to my nose. That wasn’t so bad.
I have really big issues with people doing stuff in my mouth. Hence, my phobia of dentists. Although it wasn’t one of my father’s favorite things to do, he did like oral sex. I didn’t know what I was doing, but I know I hated it. Just the thought of it makes me sick.
I have to go back to the ENT in 3 days. I will definitely be taking some Valium beforehand. Hopefully it will make it easier to deal with everything.
