Okay guys, I got one.  I've had it for more than a month, I'd say.

I read a bunch of things online that said they usually heal up on their own if you soften your stools and be careful (which I have done), but it still hasn't gotten away.

I am putting off going to the doctor for obvious reasons.  Just so embarassing.  Plus I don't really want somebody to stick their finger in my butt.  Yes I am a wuss.

It isn't bleeding anymore, but it still HURTS so bad.  Right now I'm squirming...and my last BM was over 2 hours ago.

When is it time to see a doctor?  Or is there anything else I can do for relief?

First I wanted to say, I'm sorry your asshole hurts! 

Second, I think Diana Cox has an article posted on her profile concerning healing an anal fissure.

Thank you, Colene!  I can't seem to find the blog entry...I did a search for anal fissure on her blog and nothing.
