Doctors don't scare me...they are doing thier job and without them, things wouldn't be as good as they are now.

It depends on whether you're getting a normal or an open MRI.

I don't mind doctors, but I don't like needles very much.

Well I had it done yesterday, it was really scary because I'm claustraphobic but luckily I got the open one. It was really loud, but that didn't bother me much. So I get the results on monday and hopefully I will find out what is wrong with my knee.

When its closed you're in a coffin sort of white thing and they take ur X rays. You lay there for like 20 minutes and they scan you. Its what they try to do to the kid in Darkness Falls before his madre saves him. They keep it cold in there so you dont sleep. I heard it sucks.

Ya I do hate needles. I've talked my way out of a shot with a doctor twice. I haven't had one since 6th grade, and I pretended to pass out (unsuccessfully) to get out of it. I'll need to work on it...

Needles aren't very scary.
Taking blood isn't scary either...its just weird when you see your blood flowing so fast into these little vials.
