Is this something that is putting you off going to the doctors? It would have been too easy to say that this was a bad excuse. Because phobias are real and those who do not have them should always be sensitive towards those who have them. The x ray in New Jersey that you may have been putting off is quite harmless, really. Come, let us explain this to you quickly. In layman’s terms so that you can understand and appreciate this.
First of all; what is a phobia. Well, if you are transphobic for instance, that could mean that you are afraid of transgendered men and women. You have an innate fear of them buried inside of you. This does not mean to suggest that you utterly disagree with their way of life. Perhaps you did not know that, in actual fact, they are born with a condition. And the only known way to help people like this is to allow them this is the word used to transition.
You can transition from your fear of the X ray too if you want to. You fear the X ray because you may have heard that it is laced with radioactive material. And you are left wondering that should you ever need to go for an X ray, would you ever become infected or affected by the radiation exposure. You will not, actually, because if there is any radioactive material in the X ray, it is rather minimal to say the least.
In actual fact, it is miniscule in comparison to the radiation you are now exposed to on a daily basis. You jump with fright? Yes, this much is true. And while you have been reading this note, you were probably exposed too.
