Last Thursday was one experience Id never forget. I had my first MRI. Yes. Seriously. To those who do not know MRI is the tunnel like machine we see at hospitals where they put patients inside to be scanned. Unlike my previous notion of MRI short for Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
I thought it'd be a piece of cake. But boy was I mistaken. The experience was D-R-E-A-D-F-U-L!!!!!!! Super!! Imagine being laid down, with pads locking your head from moving and a cage like devide to cover your face. If thats uncomfortably claustrophobic enough, you are stuck inside that tunnel for 2 hours and you are not allowed to move (to avoid blurred scans). In short you are bound to get nauseous because of the restricted blood flow to the body caused by the lack of body movement. It was cold too and despite a blanket covering me during the whole time, man the cold can creep to your toes and hands. I was fighting my mind from not panicking. And what was worse, the sound of the scan. I thought itll be a simple electronic sound like a computer printer but no. It was very loud. Even with earplugs and soothing music it cant mask how irritatingly loud the sounds were. Every 5 minutes a new type of banging sound is made so you never get used to it.
After an hour or so, I thought id totally lose it because of the noise and the nausea I was feeling so I pressed the panic button beside my right hand to stop the scanning. I thought I could ask the technician if I can get up and lay back again, but sadly I was told if i'd do that we have to start from the beginning. Ouch. Shucks. Man. So, I have to endure the remaining hour and disregard every discomfort I was feeling, hearing. And did I mention my back and shoulders started to ache really bad?
Alas after two hours, the technician told me the procedure was over. Phew!!!! What a relief!!!! When I got up I immediately felt the blood rushing to my brain and It was dizzying.
This tops the list of the most painful, uncomfortable, nerve racking, stresssful experience I had...ever!!!!!!
And oh yes before i forget, the reason why I had an MRI was to check my brain and spine for problems because I constantly suffer from migraine attacks. Tomorrow Ill be seeing my neurologist again and have my results explained to me. cross fingers.

So this look is inspired by my trip to the hospital. There I realized that everyday we constantly battle problems inside our heads and its really upto us if we let the problems win over. Its really mind over matter. It takes courage.
