ELECTROMYOGRAPHY/ NAZI TEST


I'm no punk but damn I sure don't want to go to this Neurologist tomorrow. I know what he's gonna want to do and it's as nasty a test as they come. I had my last one back in 1988. I even had to hold back bursting out into tears. I was quiet but I did have tears in my eyes. I then asked him if he took this gadget to parties, you know test out your friends and shit? He just looked at me like I was crazy, a blank look. That's when I told him He probably went to the Hitler Youth University. He wasn't amused but neither was I.
They take these needles, more like darts, that's wired to a radiograph type thingy. They then stick the needle into your arms, all over all the way up to your neck, testing the nerves reaction when the needle hits it. You have three nerves in your arm and they test all three and all spots. The further up, towards your neck, the more painful it becomes. CIA probably uses this.
So, I'm a bit bitchy in anticipation.

miranda, you can go with me instead. I'll need someone to slap me avross the face and yell, "Snap out of it bitch," when I won't let go of the Dr.'s neck! lol

miranda, BTW, I hit my Dr. when I was 18 years old. He was 6"5, a big guy and he said he knew it was coming. He forgave me!

Hopw did you know this is what I did at the hospital??

Rich, say it isn't so? lol I guess if it's gotta be done, it might as well be a nice looking, charming and gracious guy, like yourself!! Woohoo the anticipation about having this test is enough to ignite Satan's ass! No Sir, I don't like it. I can't remember but I think that with this test, they can't give you Valium or Xanax because they need your response unclouded? In other words, give me a bit to bite on we're doing this one solo and sober. Dammit, this is my lot in life. I don't mind dishing out the pain to willing participants, donning the leather and stiletto's for a good cause but I'm just not into being on the receiving end.

Delaine, it's really great to hear from you and I will check out your page. Hope you have a great day. In the future, when you come here, I suggest safety goggles! lol

RICH said...

ignite Satan's ass! I like that.. I've been called everything but NOT Satan Yet!!

Actually you can take valium or Xanax just as long as you are concious. I used to do this kind of testing but moved on but I still run the labs or as people call em "house of horror" that do it!!

Babsbitchin said...

Rich, I made up that "Ignite Satan's ass" part. I think I like it too, hah! No I was not calling you that but, I'll tell you what, I'm not so nice with my diplomacy, keep it all inside thing anymore. I'm curious to see if the Guy who does the tests (Intern) lives to tell! hahahaha!!
You can take Xanax? I wonder if they'll offer it or try to see if they can push me over the edge and go Postal on their asses. I mean it, I just don't have the same sense of humor I used to and somebody's feelings are liable to get hurt over this,lol!!!

RICH said...

The lab that does it will not usually offer it to as they like to be as sadistic as they can LOL. So My advice to you would be to bring your own.

Babsbitchin said...

Rich, so it's BYOX? I just so happen to have a Xanax, stashed and one I nibble on when I can't breathe.I just might have to take care o'bidniz!Thanks for the heads up. I couldn't remember but let me tell you this, I lay awake last night thinking about this damn test. My psyche tells me to be upset, get ready to fight and my brain says stop worrying about the dumb shit. Oh, these are the days and such is my life. I'm just a bitchin' away, huh? I guess that's why they call me Babs Bitchin'. You do have a calming effect, did I ever tell you that???

RICH said...

by the way, how did the test go for you???
was Satan himself there to watch and grin as the needle went under your skin?

you really think I have a calming effect eh?
