I remember once I had a bad cough when I was 6 years old. I got very scared at the clinic. So much that when doctor asked my mom to lay me on the exam bed and the doctor raised my top to steth me, I started crying. I wouldn't stay still.
So to calm me down mom took me in her lap and the doctor put stethoscope earpiece in my ears then I felt assured.
That's when I heard my heartbeat for the first and last time.
When we were about to leave, the doctor asked why was I crying, I told him that I thought he would give an injection.
I would still take strong medication than taking an injection. Nothing has changed there
