    I'm 18 and I have a doctors appointment in 30 mins.
    My Mum doesn't normally come to the doctors with me but I had a bad blood test and she wants to come.

    Should I let her or am I too old?

    yh I get what you mean but it's not like she's joining you to a party or night out or something, she's just worried is all. i'd say let her come tbh.

    I'm 42 and still take both my parents when going to see the doctor.

    If she wants to come, let her - you're doing it more for her than you Mums like to worry.

    It should be your choice. If you want her to come let her, but if you don't then refuse.
    There's no age too old for having your mum come with you!

    Haha my mum still comes with me, I have a blood test soon and usually I have to ask her to come even though she tries pushing me to go alone she gives in.

    Only if it’s personal I’ll go alone, most the time it isn’t

    it's absolutely fine going with your mum, loads of people go with their parents. i went to the doctors recently and best believe i was too shy and still had to get my mum explain to the doc what's wrong with me

    She's your Mum, she's already conceived, carried, given birth, and raised you for the first 18 years.

    Another hour or two won't hurt

    it's not a big deal either way, I've been doing the doctor alone since I was about 15 because I prefer it but it's normal to bring someone with you (whether it's a parent, partner, etc) for support and to be a second set of ears in case you miss something or don't ask a question you need to
