The Kicker? I've Got The Itch

The Itch started this morning.

And, as usual it started out on my head.

Because I've been a bit obsessive about the status of my manhood, I've been neglegent in taking my zrytec. You may remember a previous post (Sunday January 30) where I explained the common symptom of zyrtec withdrawal being hives - or in my case - endless, full-body itching.

I found one tablet left and gulped in down with my breakfast despite the fact that you are suppose to take it at night because it makes you sleepy.

I'm about ten minutes away from trekking down to the CVS pharmacy and get the damn prescription refilled.

Ponder this: piss poor erections, sore balls covered in razor stubble and an insatiable full-body itch.

Your day can't been worse than mine.

Okay, so in my previous post I couldn't figire out how to link to the Planned Parenthood site so here are the facts on risks involving vasectomies:

Hydrocels - Swelling containing fluid causes tenderness near the testicles.

Granulum - About as disgusting as it sounds. Sperm can leak from the tubes and cause sperm granulation which can lead to a lump underneath the incision.

In roughly 7 out of 100 cases, some men feel temporary discomfort or pain in the testicles. It is suggested that you take an anti-inflammatory to help.

What they don't tell you is how all of this is going to affect your psyche. For me, the pain in my testicles feels like I'm constantly walking around like I was kicked in the nuts five minutes early. I can deal with the loss of appetite but loss of erection? Try that one on for size.

It isn't that I can't get an erection. Just that keeping the fucker at full mast can be difficult. Having your dick wilt in the middle of a blow job or half way through masturbation is probably one of the biggest mindfucks that can be delivered to a man's brain.

It's only been two weeks but I'm putting in a call to the doctor on this one.
