Don't feel the need to ask anyone what they'll "allow" you to have during...

I think some therapy could really help. To me, you sound depressed. You said you're prone to anxiety. I think there's a doctor out there who can help you. Everything looks worse when you're...

Look. There's no way I'd ever do anything to imply that there was anything wrong with my circ'd son. I'd certainly not be having them wear some cone on their penis.
