    I have this really bad problem I have to work very hard to get over when I am at a doctor- I have this need for the doctor to be pleased with me and not disappointed in what I have to say, so I find myself telling the doctor what I think they want to hear before correcting myself and saying the truth. It’s like I think the doctor will hate me if I have the wrong symptoms. I don’t know why.

      Really common. Hard for many of us to not do this. It’s the same when you’re in technical support; people lie about the circumstances because they don’t want to look bad in front of the techie. Or doctor. Or dentist. Or mechanic.
