Full disclosure: I totally didn’t/don’t feel like blogging today.
Of course, I have my days where I’m just like, “Seriously?! I’ve got better things to do!” and days where I’m like, “I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO SAY.”
The truth is this: keeping this blog has definitely taught me that I do learn something new every day. Whether those things are things I want to share with the Internet, or whether those things are interesting enough to share with the Internet is another story.
At any rate, there it is. Today I’m not a huge fan of my own blog.
But I did learn something.
I went to the hospital this morning for my MRI. Like I said yesterday, I was lucky to not have to wait more than a few months for it, because the wait time can be 12 months or more. I was even luckier this morning because I got in to do the MRI like, 20 minutes ahead of schedule. Score.
My co-worker was right. It’s pretty claustrophobic, and it’s definitely a long time to hold still. What got me the most, though, was how fucking LOUD it is. The sounds were literally making me queasy after a while. I might as well have been lying on the street while someone jack-hammered an Andrea-shaped hole around me or something. So I wasn’t prepared for that, but I survived.
The lesson I learned is that an MRI, though uncomfortable and mildly stressful, is not as bad as a biopsy,* which I had done last month, and which was pretty gross. (Especially when I removed my own stitches after the fact.)
That’s all for today. Chatty Cathy over here, right?
*And a lot of other things I’ve had to do, and a lot of other things I’m lucky to have never needed to do.
