I have those feelings too. I am most comfortable with my table saw so I use it for most everything. I rarley use other tools. Table saw and jointer are what I use 90% of the time. I even cut crown molding for my house on my table saw. I do get very nervous when I use other tools though like my router. I always try to pause for a moment before I turn something on and get togeather a game plan in my hand of where my hands are going to be and how I am going to make the cut. I find when I do get hurt is when I don’t pause first to get my game plan going. It took me a while to train my self to just not turn on a tool before thinking of what I am doing. Also after I am done cutting I stop to think about any close calls I may have had. The other weekend I was batch jointing on my table saw and reached over the spinning blade. I did not think much of it at the time but next time I do it I will make sure that it is in my pre-cutting pause.
