That's what she said.
I couldn't resist, temptation got the best of me. But on to the important stuff. I am also not a doctor or chemist, but my father is a G.I. (gastroenterologist) doc
, so I would consider myself to be somewhat qualified to hit you with some knowledge.
Bloody stool is never, ever a good sign and is something that must be taken seriously. While some foods and even Pepto-bismol, aka bismuth subsalicylate, can give your poop the appearance of containing blood (though it is often more brownish than red), this is obviously not the case.
Bloody bowel movements, especially those containing what is apparently flesh, are quite often a sign of internal bleeding in some part of the G.I. tract. It could be a sign of possible colon cancer
, an anal fissure
, or perhaps the not as menacing but still cause for concern, ulcer.
All of the aforementioned possibilities, which by no means is intended to be an all-inclusive list, should be reason enough to seek medical attention, if not just for the how horrible "anal fissure" sounds and the truly heartbreaking nature of cancer.
On a sincerely, honest note, I am glad that you have chosen to stop this reckless behavior, and truly hope you can stick to your word. Nevertheless, it is still highly advisable to seek out a professional, if only to rule out the nasty possibilities and give you some peace of mind. I honestly hope everything is okay.
Life is an easy thing to take for granted. I used to be reckless with drug
use, but after witnessing my cousin and very close friend of mine who was the most honest, loving, and caring person I have ever known, die slowly of skin cancer for which he had no control over, I have a much greater appreciation for life. I now realize how lucky it is to be healthy. It saddens me see people put their life in danger by making horrible decisions in favor of a quick high while others are suffering simply because they were dealt a bad hand and never had the luxury of 'choice.'
