Although I have a slight phobia of having to have stitches again. At the hospital when I was 6 or so they put permanent stitches instead of the dis-solvable ones in for a hernia operation I had. The scar then heals, then they wonder why the stitches are still there. They then had to PULL the stitch's out with a pair of tweezers, it took about an hour or so (there were only like 7, most painful experience of my life).

I really don't know how I'm going to get over that one


Uuuuh fuck me, just curious when they pulled them out did you have to have your hand bandaged to stop bleeding or they were holes? Like in piercings?

Can you get a hernia in your hand? Or are they bandaging up the hand to stop the bleeding elsewhere in his body? I don't see how that works.

Generally they snip and pull stitches out, though it's actually relatively painless, the pain probably just felt worse because when you're young you fear the pain so much more, can't remember a figure but a LARGE amount of pain is actually our anxiety of pain making it worse, all in our heads - after all :3

shit that sounds painful! Is there a scar? :\
you're right about not being able to overcome it though - it's definitely not like a phobia of heights that you can cure.
Yes, it was rather painful... like very rather painful.
No scar, my mum doused my knee in scarleshealer everyday until it healed, and even then I put vitamin E oil on it.  The only evidence that it was ever there is a slightly dark spot where the blister was.  But as I've grown that has stretched to an almost unnoticeable point.

Why should it not be curable? Ask a friend to fill up a bucket with warm water, slightly below the temperature you shower in. Tell him that he has to pour it over you on a random moment catching you by surprise.

You'll be amazed how fast you get over your fear of warm water that way. Thank me later.
Not a chance of working sorry.
Warm water doesn't bother be in the slightest.
See, it's not really a fear of water, but rather a fear of being burnt.
As soon as the warm water gushed onto my head, I'd be like "Dude, WTF." ...but not cured, just a little peeved.

Flames don't bother me.
I've never been burnt by fire.
Truth be told, I'm a bit of a fire bug at the BQ.
...It's only being burnt by boiling water that gives me the shivers. :P

I wasn't going to tell you, but it seems that I am required to.
You never knew me.
We never met...
The person whom you thought was me was in fact a cover, a fake, acted profile to fool you.
You may be thinking. "What was the point, why go to all the trouble."
Well the answer is simple, they needed to get something from you, and I was the only option.
I can't guarantee your safety anymore.
We are not friends anymore... we never were.



...scared yet. :D

The boiling water and hernia operations were two different things :(. So no I don't have any scars on my arm or hands luckily :)

For the hernia, they put permanent stitches in (I think there a little stronger than the normal ones most people get. Really thick and purple) so and I think they were stitched differently because they were permanent aswell. Either way, for some reason they couldn't just cut them :(. and yes there was blood everywhere and I had to leave carrying a massive cotton ball type thing to soak up all the blood as i walked out :D. As far as hernia scars goes it's pretty bad :(.

That reminds me of something:

Evolution must be incorrect, because snoring was designed to keep other people awake. :D

Really? I thought snoring was made because your nose is clogged during sleep? :P

You should hear my dad snore, walls actually vibrate around the room :D
