Today, what started with me forcing a shit a little too hard ended up with me being rushed to the hospital with appendicitis. FML

it was only a matter of time before that comment came up

It's alright this guy is huge so he can say stupid puns and still be incredibly cool and jacked

It's like a shit-related FML tradition. Although the tradition in itself is pretty shitty, if I do say so myself.

When will people understand that comment was only funny the first time!

#10 I hope you're joking and not really thinking that. A dumb comment is a dumb comment, doesn't matter what someone looks like.

I don't think anyone in the fml community knows what sarcasm is... #10 I was obviously joking about #4's slightly douchey profile picture

How hard were you pushing? Goddamm

You do know straining is not what caused the appendicitis...

No, but it could cause an already infected appendix to burst.

Wondering the progression of events here. Did the op only discover that their abdomen hurt because of how hard they were trying? Or did they somehow mistake appendicitis for needing to poop?

That happened to my sister. She woke up with a real bad stomach ache and had just assumed she needed to poop. When the pain got worse that's when she realized something was seriously wrong

I just learned about this in anatomy lecture this week. They mistook their pain as a sign that they needed to poop. The appendix is off the very beginning of your large intestine and sometimes little pieces of poo become trapped in it. Most of the time the movements from your intestines clear it out, but sometimes it gets lodged down further and further. Once it's down there's really no way to get it out other than surgery. DocBastard please read this and tell me if I'm right!

I was going to say I didn't see the connection. But shit it looks like they are.

Exactly right! My father and my boyfriend have both had their appendix removed...both thought they just had to poop. Both felt very sick. I forced them both (years apart) to go to the ER. I was right both times and super glad they were okay. My dads boyfriends didn't.

I think I read a previous FML involving appendicitis. Hope you get better OP

Forcing isn't healthy. Drink more water; it really helps!
