This feeling has crept up on me. Perhaps I overthink things now, perhaps it's middle aged anxiety, but I'm definitely developing a fear of visiting my GP. Do you want to know why?
Afraid of the cost
Here in Ireland it costs around €60 to go to the GP.
Afraid of the wait
The good thing about the Irish system is that you can get an appointment on the day you ring. The bad thing is that you usually have to wait. I hate waiting, and start to worry about all the other things I could be doing. And there's more.
