This This is the one I have been in the last three or four times. Open on both sides. The bed moves back and forth as the mechanics inside the circle make a whirring sound. There is a little clock just at the top and you can keep track of how long it is taking. I have had some as long as an hour and some just 10 minutes. There is also a speaker and you can hear the techie talking to you giving you directions for holding your breath, etc. the bed is extremely uncomfortable. They have to give me pillows to lie on. The hour one had to be done over. I had no pillows and was in a lot of pain with my hip and spine. The second try was more successful with the pillows.

Oh my gosh, I have been mowing this morning. I came in to use the restroom and rest a bit before going back out. I look like something from a si-fi movie with my mask. Here it is. I'm not showing you what I look like in it. It would scare small children LOL

Cooper has decided that you really need to see the mask on someone, so here goes:

I am a born 1/2 Sun & Sea Worshipper

Under an umbrella, on our open air terrace, with lap top ...

Have a lovely August.

That is the same type I was in but I didn't see any clock. I had a damp cloth over my eyes before I went into the machine for my claustrophobia. The tech was great too, talking in a soothing voice and making sure I was okay the whole time. The 40 minutes it took went by fairly quickly

I'm waiting for our former neighbour to come pick up some mail. I am anxious to get into the shower but I know as soon as I do, he will show up. So I'm waiting...sort of patiently. LOL.

Caught up on the posts and emails, just puttering around FB playing games and entertaining myself. Thinking about the logic of purchasing a second Kindle for my girls to use. They are reading some of the books I've recently read. I like to encourage reading, but a second Kindle might be too much $.
