MRI Panic

Sorry I didn't manage to get anything up yesterday, I was too busy stressing about my hospital appointment today. It was nothing major, just a MRI but I really didn't enjoy my last one and was completely dreading having to have another one.

I wouldn't consider myself claustrophobic or anything like that but that tube puts the fear of God in me. I can only explain the feeling as what it must feel like to be inside a coffin, a loud lighted coffin.

I didn't enjoy my last MRI but it went fine. I managed to get it done without any issues. It sucked but I figured I'd never have to have another one again.... I was wrong.

Today's MRI didn't go as well. I lost it.... Big time. I wasn't inside that coffin like to tube more than 2 minutes before they had to take me out. Apparently it's very common to have a panic attack inside a MRI machine. The tech was saying it's almost more common to have one then not. Which made me feel a little better, but I still feel like a big baby. They make it look so nice in the easy on TV.... Bunch of liars.

Luckily after I calmed down I managed to suck it up and have my MRI done. I just couldn't face the thought of having to come back and go through this all over again. So I just focused on my breathing and kept my eyes closed.  It still wasn't enjoyable in any shape or form but at least I got it done.

Needless to say I won't be agreeing to have another one done any time soon. But if it helps sort out my back I guess it was worth it.... Just. In all honesty I think I'd rather have the pain than the panic attack.

Stay safe and out of any coffin like tubes.

Love,

The Honest Bitch

  1. If you throw up inside the MRI machine, you'll be remarkably close to the feelings of a penis inside a vagina.

    Hehehe...

    Glad you made it through the MRI!

  2. Honey, I'll be in the tube shortly for a cat scan. I will take Xanax (prob. an extra one) and a marker so I can write graffiti on the walls. Make that 3 xanax. Hope all is well with you.

  4. Hey HB,

    sorry to hear you're having health issues and MRIs are scary as fuck. I don't blame you for having a panic attack.

    I hope you're okay now.

    P.S. ESCORTS IN HYDERABAD go suck yourself.

    Love,

    Jimmy

  6. Luckily I've never had an MRI and don't consider myself claustrophobic either, but I guess anything is possible. Hope you get the results you desire with your back.

  7. I tried doing one today for the first time ever. It was for a clinical trial. I couldn't go through with it my body wouldn't let me. I was vomiting and everything. I tried to get back on again but I couldn't do it was cancelled, and I felt like a loser but unjust couldn't do it and they couldn't sedate me. Ugh

  9. Second try for me. I'm just too big. 240lbs 6'2 and a big titty baby when it comes to the tube.
    I've had one two other times when I was younger maybe it's the age thing
    It may be the pain thing I'm kind of bend and can't lay on a flat surface w/o a pillow
    So they diagnose people with pacemakers etc
    I may get a tatto that says no
    I feel silly and ashamed. I don't want my kids to know.
