Every since I was a little girl, whenever I was afraid of something, my dad would call me a "sissy la la". The phrase stuck with me and now my kids use it towards each other.
I was a BIG sissy la la this morning!!!
I went to the hospital as scheduled to have my stress test for my heart. What I didn't know before getting there was that I was going to be injected with radiation and then stuck into a machine to take pictures of my heart. NO WAY!
I am VERY claustrophobic. Hell, even with 4 mgs of Xanax in my I still couldn't do an MRI the other year.
I DID try this morning. Before they gave me the injection the very nice tech got the machine ready and I climbed up onto the table. She started it up and as I was being slid into place and the rotating plate thing came closer and closer to my face, I freaked.
She got me out quickly and I apologized over and over again for wasting her time, but there was just no way that I could spend 20 minutes in there!
I dub myself a HUGE SISSY LA LA!
Hopefully I will do better this afternoon when I go for my annual mammogram.
