Yes I had an MRI today
I wasn’t that worried about it to begin with because usually they ask if you want something to calm you down. Today I did; I thought it would cause me pain to lay on my back that long.
But I got there and they said “oh we don’t do that anymore”! You are kidding? The comfort and peace of your patients is no longer important? No it’s not.
Okay so I didn’t start to freak out until 5 minutes before.
And the MRI was for my lower back so I knew I was going ALL THE WAY IN.
I practiced my mindfulness deep breathing and somehow made it through with only a (felt like) bruise on my head and foot/nerve pain like always.
I’m really proud of sitting in the torpedo tube for 40 minutes and returning without any permanent harm due to my wildly creative imagination.
