Awwww, you have them, too? :'( I'm so sorry that you have to go through that as well, they're awful! ;-; I feel your pain. ;^;
Wow, really? That's so young, how terrible! D': I guess they really can hit you at any age! It's odd, the doctor told me it was "really unusual" for me to have them so young, and that it was mostly something found in "older patients." Apparently, anal fissures are more common in my age group, at least, according to her. But tests said I have no fissures, just external hemorrhoids. I guess either they're not as uncommon in younger people as they think, or we're just two odd birds.
I'd like to opt for the former, myself. Not that I wish even MORE people the same discomfort, of course, just...Well, I dunno. Anyyyyyway!
Ohhhhhhh, shoot. Now I know what my problem is. Since I was little, I've always been in the habit of playing my Gameboy, DS, etc. while on the toilet.
I still do it, and I end up sitting there for a good 30, 45 minutes. I guess I really need to kick myself to not do that anymore...
Oh my GOD. The things can BURST?!
Geeeeeeeezz, that's horrible!! I guess I don't want to do THAT to myself!
Those other outcomes also sound rather unpleasant...*sigh* I'll definitely wait until this particular bout of 'roids clears up. Man oh man.
I'm thinking I might try and see how it goes maybe after I've healed up a bit...But, I still would like to give it at least one shot. I won't push myself too hard, and, if it doesn't go well, then I'll have learned my lesson.
Eep! The prospect of surgery frightens me....Very, VERY much...I'm afraid of being conked out and at the mercy of other people as they cut me up....I know that's just my imagination exaggerating it, but I...I just feel so scared about the idea, I've never experienced it before! D: But, if it would help me, then....D: I'll probably wait until they worsen a bit. Although, if I have any more of those times where I have sharp shooting pains just from moving (they last for about a week), I'll strongly consider it, because it's very debilitating...I try so hard to get out and do what I need to do, but even then, I can't help but wince, and then people ask me what's wrong, and, well...All I can say is, "Uhhhhhhhhh..."
I'll definitely consider doing that in the future, though. My dad had surgery to have his removed (I got my lovely hemorrhoid genetics from him
), and I think it helped him. Well, I haven't really asked...
But I think
it helped him...I should talk to him about it...
Aww, that's terrible! ;-; Especially since you used to enjoy it so much! D': I sure do hope they don't stay with you forever. Whether you get them removed or not, I hope they stop being such a burden for you. ;;
Hmmm, the Gryphon, eh? Now that IS an idea, indeed! Now that I look at him again, he does seem fantastically suited for anal play! OwO I'll definitely add him to my ever-growing list of potential buys....Wow, now I'm even MORE psyched about picking out my first BD toy!
There are just SO many to choose from, I already know just from LOOKING at them that I won't be able to have just one
.....But, until I have more money, one will have to do. I'll just grow my collection slowly, to start!
*sigh* It's gonna be so haaaaaaardd, though! ;^;
Thank you so much for sharing your personal story with me, and giving me such great advice! I really, really appreciate it!

I developed a mild but chronic case of 'roids late in puberty, and have had them for a long time. (How long? Let's just say that "late puberty" was over 30 years ago.) The thing about 'roids is that doctors are really
uncomfortable talking to a teenager about his butt, especially in the early 80's when the late 70's gay renaissance had just collided with the ugly reality of HIV, and every teenage boy is terribly, tragically on edge about being thought "gay" and "contaminated." It really was a different world back then. So the doctor hands you a box of witch hazel wipes and a tube of Preparation H and he talks around the issue and finally you're like, okay, I'm gonna have to figure this out on my own
One of the reasons I got into anal play in the first time was that 'roids made me really aware of my butt. And you know what made them go away? Yep: toying
. Massaging the inflamed veins and soothing the constriction was the best cure for them ever.
I can't say the same is true for everyone, and certainly one shouldn't play to extremes when they're present, but a small, warmed-up toy, a lot of lube, and no pressure to be anywhere for a while was just about the best damn cure I ever found, and still is to this day.
Oh my gosh, that sounds AWFUL! ;-; I mean, I get that they were different times, but, wow. It's a doctor's job
to help their patient through whatever it is that they're going through, both physically and emotionally, regardless of the circumstances and their personal feelings. They're supposed to be mature about that sort of thing. =/ That's just...really unfortunate. I suppose times really have changed, my experience wasn't like that at all
. I'm so sorry you were treated that way! :'( I guess I can't really imagine or understand what it was like, because I wasn't there during those times....I offer you my sincerest sympathy, though. I just can't imagine...
Woooooowwww, really? That's incredible! I never imagined that toying could actually cure
That's definitely an unexpected twist! If that's the case, then I guess I should at least give it a go and see how it turns out! If it helps me out, then it'll be awesome
. And, well, if it hurts like hell, I guess I'll know not to do it again!
Of course, like you said, I'll start small, and use plenty of lube...and, we'll see how it goes!
Thank you very much for sharing your personal experience with me, it was very helpful! C;
