Don’t fence me in

ClaustrophobiaI’ve mentioned here before that I’m claustrophobic.

It’s getting worse instead of better.

I had to have another closed MRI yesterday, and unlike my experience a couple of years ago, I was a bit of a wreck.

The technician used all the bells and whistles to calm my fears — and trick my brain — into thinking I wasn’t in a narrow, closed tube.

But they didn’t work this time.

When I got home, I started reading up on possible therapies, cures even, for this debilitating fear.  Guess what the first recommendation is?

Get an MRI.

Sadists.
