I am going to try to describe this the best way possible.
For me, it was a very weird experience.
I had an MRI done on my right shoulder.
I've never had an MRI, but I have heard a lot of
people talk about them. Especially the fact
that they feel claustrophobic. I remember vividly, my uncle
telling me of his experience, and just listening to him
tell me about it, freaked me out. Freaked out
for his sake.
I do not consider myself claustrophobic.
Not in the least bit.
So I lay down on this table with my head near "that hole".
The guy takes like 15 minutes adjusting my shoulder, my
arm, my butt, my head, until I was just right.
Just before I started moving toward "the hole",
he put on me, this gigantic set of fuzzy headphones.
OK - Music
I'm good with that.
A little Aerosmith playing - "Janie's Got A Gun"
I'm good with that too.
Then I start moving into "the damn hole".
WITH MY EYES OPEN.
So I quickly shut them because I really didn't like seeing
how "in the hole" I was going......
After I closed my eyes, all I could see (under my eyelids)
were these psychedelic waves of sort.
Kinda made me sick to my stomach.
I took a couple of very deep breaths,
and started getting into the music.
I kept imagining myself on the Rock-N-Roller Coaster
at Disney World, in which they play
Aerosmith songs while you are screaming and
That's all it took.
For about 40 minutes.
Thank God it's over.
