I think it's important to keep in mind that the other flusher (me) is in a
VERY different situation than you are. You've been in the ER countless times
for your pain, I've been there once (and didn't actually see a doctor because
the pain went away on it's own while I waited). Your attacks happen 2-3
times a week, if I recall correctly, and mine once a month. Yours last for
hours, mine for less than 30 minutes usually. While it's difficult to compare
pain (since we can't exactly know what another person is feeling), from your
descriptions I get the impression that your pain is far more intense, just by
virtue of the fact that you take antispasmodics and have seen the inside of
the ER so many times.

The reason I bring up these comparisons is because I think it's important for
anyone who reads what someone else does, to take a serious look at their own
body and their own experience and their own condition before making a choice
to try what another person has done. I know that you went into that
open-minded and fully expecting a "Dusan's Grandmother" experience, but I
write this note for the sake of anyone else out there who might consider
trying it.

I don't want anyone else to suffer because they've read of my experience and
tried something I did. And yet I do want to feel free to share my
experiences without worrying about someone ending up in misery because they
thought they might try what I did.

Remember, everyone, my 'condition' has always been QUITE mild in comparison
to most people's out here. I have a little more freedom to experiment and
just don't want injury caused to anyone else because of anything I've shared.

Barry - I'm so sorry that this experience was so awful for you, and yet I
know you've wanted to do it (even before I did it, I think!) and so I'm just
glad you got through it.

now - don't ever scare me like that again! :)

in health,
