"I take pretty good care of myself. I watch what I eat, I work out a couple times a week and I try not to stress out too much. But for the past year, I've had hemorrhoids on and off. I'm not sure what triggers the flare-ups, but I've read it could be from my diet or straining when weightlifting."
"My flare-ups can last up to a week. The worst part is not knowing when the next one will happen. I try not to let it affect my life, but sometimes it's hard. I travel a lot for work and I have two kids, so I can't really afford to have ‘down' days. I mean, who can?"
