“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

To the Medical Imaging Technicians of the world:

If you are requiring me to come to a diagnostic procedure with a full bladder, it’s only polite to do everything within your power to ensure that you are not running behind.

Twenty minutes may not seem long to you, but I assure you that after drinking two liters of water within an hour, it’s an eternity on this end.

Thank you for your consideration.

    Remind me to tell you the “I gotta pee!!” and “Kidney punch” stories some day.

    Random intimate fact about me – one of my kidneys is evidently smaller than the other, and thus smaller than the standard amount of water they pump in before doing X-rays. Oh yeah – and then they tell you a) hold still and b) stop acting like a wimp.

    And don’t you just love it when they say “well, then go just a little bit to ease the pressure.”
