MRI Worries

Dear Diary   

And now, for the latest installment in Deb’s Back is all Messed Up. I found out that I’ve got a ‘suspected’ torn disc a couple of weeks ago. Today I’m supposed to go for an MRI, which if you aren’t familiar with stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. I’ve got to lay, completely still, in a big giant tube that makes a lot of noises while it takes pretty pictures of my insides.
