Cindy -

Your post doesn't tell us much.  Are you waiting 6 months for your first MRI?  Have you been diagnosed with an AN?  If you are waiting for your first MRI and want to speed things up, perhaps this will help:

I live in Toronto.  The MRI machines here run 24/7, not sure if they follow the same schedule in Winnipeg.  Regardless, it's worth contacting the hospital and letting them know that you will take a cancellation or if they do run 24/7, ask for a late appointment.  I usually go in around 11 p.m. at night. It's actually pretty good - no backlog in the waiting room, no traffic and lots of parking!

Such a long wait. I am also waiting for MRI tomorrow and am scared stiff based on all my symptoms. Any advice on how to cut some of the tension. I have read some of the ordeals of members here and I am in awe of the strength I see.
