Sadly, I now do this every day.
I’m approaching my decade anniversary. Woot. It should be clear to anybody thinking about this procedure that if they want to live a life of blue balls, then go for it. I have a colleague that watched me go through the pain. I strongly advised him not to get the snip. Now, he is one of us - a Zombie - not quite dead.
I joke with my kids about pain. I tell them first that pain is a message to the brain to not do that, and secondly, it let’s you know that you are alive.
