I had planned to write a list of things that made me happy this week, but after yesterday I realise that it boils down to one very simple thing: That right now, right at this second, I am not having another cranial MRI. MRIs are probably not scary at all to most people, but when you are claustrophobic (and I am!) they are an unholy nightmare. I spent an hour stuffed in a tiny tube with horrible plastic headgear all over me, trying to breathe normally & not have a panic attack. I cried the entire time. But I got through it, maybe not with any of my dignity intact, but through it all the same. I still feel shaky and like I want to throw up, but that may be the contrast dye. So basically: I’m glad that’s over, and I’m never doing it again.

What about you guys? Any fun stories from The Week That Was? How about some awesome MRI stories?
