Hey Coop. I have had problems as well. I have bleeding frequently (the Dr.s can't find anything on 3 scopes - they attribute it to internal hemorrhoids). I also have had chronic prostate infections since i was 18. I was also diagnoses with irritable bowel syndrome several years ago. Whether these issues are related to my abuse (anal sex from age 8-14) or not, each time they occur, it brings back memories, shame, fear, etc. I believe at some level that our bodies do store memories at some level, and that these can affect our physiology.
I have done a lot of work on trying to deal with the issues without anger or anxiety, and they go away more quickly. Seeing the blood in the toilet bowel used to scare me to death, now its just a nuisance. The prostatitis causes me some generalized pain in my legs and back, and the tip of my penis feels like it's being burned, but again, I usually wear tight underwear, take advil and get on. It took me more than 35 years to get to this point, but now that I'm nearly 45, I figure I'll be able to take the old age stuff with a smile on my face
I'm so sorry we have to deal with any of this shit. I am glad you brought up this subject - it is always hard to discuss and it was brave of you.
