[personal profile] commodorified: You know, if it weren't for the piercings issue I feel like you'd quite enjoy getting an MRI. I mean it's basically an isolation chamber with an experimental industrial soundtrack.

[livejournal.com profile] benet: Oh, I have had an MRI, actually. That was my impression although, you know, I was on a looooot of Ativan

And I had already had [unpleasant medically required thing done] so anything shy of that basically seemed like a garden party

[personal profile] commodorified: legit!

well, I'm ripped on codeine to prevent coughing.

I really want to do a track called Pelvic MRI now

[livejournal.com profile] benet: Might need to be an installation...

[personal profile] commodorified: I like it. Can I do the voice?

[livejournal.com profile] benet: the voice?

[personal profile] commodorified: You know: "the next segment will be four minutes of noise"

[livejournal.com profile] benet: oh yeah!

[personal profile] commodorified: You can do the "hold still" parts, your voice is more menacing

[livejournal.com profile] benet: You know, we kid, but a convincing MRI simulator that doesn't cost a packet a go might actually be useful for anxiety

[personal profile] commodorified: Hmm with the heavy blanket of soothing and the nice breeze. I do like the breeze.

[livejournal.com profile] benet: Actually I was thinking for anxiety about having an MRI

[personal profile] commodorified: Oh. I find them, um, pleasingly womblike.

I'm a hopeless freak, aren't I?

[livejournal.com profile] benet: No, I think it makes sense.

[personal profile] commodorified: Add a lightshow on the ceiling and I'd do them for fun.

[livejournal.com profile] benet: I mean, my ideal bed is basically a cave.

[personal profile] commodorified: Last time I didn't get the heavy blanket or the airflow so that was more twitchy.

This time they put a weighted blanket over my pelvis so my breathing wouldn't move it. Much nicer.

[livejournal.com profile] benet: I cannot remember those things but I prob had the blanket.

I don't remember a weighted blanket; I bet that would have been nice. If I'd kept my eyes open, I'd definitely have gotten claustrophobic, so I closed them and meditated. It worked, except when they kept alerting me to ask me to think about things. (It was an fMRI, for research.)

Weighted blankets are totally a thing.

has a useful list of sources and resources.

People get them for their pets, even.
