One week of licence due to illness.

My youngest daughter has had back problems for years. Today she was in such pain that she went to a doctor near her work site. The doctor gave her pills and rest (no work for a week) but he also asked for a magnetic resonance exam. I´ll go with her as she suffers from claustrophobia. I told her to take a pill before going. And of course I´ll go with her. I try to go to the doctor with someone else if I can. Who knows how I´ll feel after the appointment! Do you try to go with someone to your doctor´s appointment?

She will need to take a tablet to calm her down if she suffers from that poor thing. I have gone to the Doctor´s with other people yes. A few times for not very nice things. Hope its only back strain and muscle pain can be really terrible.
@NJChicaa When my husband was alive, he would never have thought of not coming with me to the doctor. I did the same for him. When I had chemo for cancer, my friends made a list to see who went with me in what day. After a couple of times, as I came out in one piece, I told them not to come. But I was very thankful and I still am.

Gawd, pain is a horrible curse. Good she has you to go with her. I've heard that many people don't like being in the MRI device. I don't mind it so much except it's so noisy. I generally close my eyes and meditate; it's good practice to do it in such a situation, makes it easier for me to meditate at home. Anyway, the latest times I've had to take someone with me to an appointment is for cataract exams when they dilate my pupils, and of course when I had the outpatient cataract surgery. It's nice to have company! And I'm SO THANKFUL that I have a friend to go with me. It's kinda like holding hands to cross the road. Hugs to your daughter. I hope her back gets better. Maybe the MRI will reveal a way to relieve her pain.

@marguicha Oh yes, it seems endless. "What are they doing," I wonder to myself, "and what is all that noise about?!" HaHa, annoying. This is why I try to meditate in there. Also the meditation is my way of calming myself so I don't wiggle. How do you handle the experience?
