As if 10am isnt early enough, I gotta get up at 4am! Got to be at the hospital by 5am for a MRI, with full sedation. My doctor figured out that clasterphobia and MRIs don't mix and is having me knocked out. Keep me in thoughts please

Desiree, you will do fine. Sending you gentle hugs and sending up a prayer for you.
Let us know how it goes.

For those of you with upcoming MRI's, the trick is closing your eyes before the table
starts sliding back into the tube. I've had closed and open MRI's and it isn't bad, they
are talking to you and will play music for you.

The MRI's have never bothered me but getting up that early does...hahah.  You will do fine. 
 
I can remember a 2 day seminar that I paid for 3 years ago that was a 3.5 hour drive.  I made it for the first day but the second day was a no go for me and my friend that was riding with me.  At that time I did not know that I had hepatitis C but was diagnosed very soon after.  I am still afraid of commitments that early.

Desiree, I'm not a morning person either.  If I made to the hospital by 5am, they wouldn't have to bother to sedate me.  I would be so tired, I would  fall asleep on my own!  I hope that your MRI goes well.

EmL, you doll, I love your idea! Kitty, thanks for your advice. They tried without sedation 2 weeks ago, and I actually requested music to be told "we don't have any". I had them put towels over my face so I wouldn't see that head mask piece come onto me. I did ok for 2 whole minutes before I started gasping for air, I went straight into an anxiety attack that happened to trigger my asthma. They had to call emergency response and I had to get a breathing treatment. Sad part was I took 4mg (the legal limit of atavin sp?) of a seditive and it didn't phase me for a closed mri. I do great in open mri's with that sedative so they thought they would try it that way. So my doctor wised up and decided I am getting this MRI done one way or the other and gave new orders to have me fully out. Not sure if anyone has clasterphobia like I do, but I coulda sworn the machine was going to smash me to pieces. All my other doctors do an open MRI so I only do oral sedation. I got another sedation MRI coming up too, not scheduled yet, but I know it has to be in the next few weeks. I'm muttering that I woke up and got to get up in 4 hours now LOL

By the time I'm reading this, hopefully your MRI will be over with. I hope everything went well.

One thing that helps me get through icky stuff like that is telling myself, "By this time tomorrow (or next week, or whenever), it will all be over with." For some reason, that mantra is a powerful coping mechanism for me.

Rest and take care of yourself.
