Getting Personal

Heading off to have an MRI done today.  I have been experiencing a lot of back pain on my lower right side and I had not gone to the doctor in months (only thinking they'd tell me lose weight...well, duh!), and only ended up going when my whole right leg went numb.  (Not a good sign I'm told)  I ended up finding out that I probably have a herniated disc and the MRI is to find out how bad it I'm gonna get a bit personal.  I. Am. Scared. To. Death.  A. Little.  I guess I'm afraid of the unknown...I was asked if I'm claustrophobic when the appointment was made...I don't think I'm claustrophobic, but what if I freak out in there?  I was told my options and none of them sounded like fun.  I definitely do NOT want surgery.  Will I have this pain forever?  These are just a few of  the questions rolling around in my head, so I'm spending a weepy morning talking myself down before I enter into the machine.  Listening to this song makes me happy...I'm taking the CD with me and maybe they'll let me listen to it while have the scan...wish me luck and thanks for letting me get personal.

Post MRI Note:

Survived, don't recommend unless absolutely necessary, results pending.

  1. I'm so sorry, I didn't know. I'm glad to hear that it went well. I hope that it is easily fixable.


I love hearing from you! Your comments are really appreciated!
