My heart goes out to all the parents out there whom are struggling with their children and encopresis (enco). I understand how frustrated you must be, how alone you feel, how you want what’s best for your child and unsure what the next move is. I’m sorry I can’t offer much more at this stage except my love, support and advice (for those that want it), but I’m not giving up on doing more. So much awareness needs to get out, and a book (or 2) out about this as well.
I don’t want you to feel alone and powerless. Be strong. For those with enco…you aren’t alone. I’ve got your back. I’m here for you. It’s a hard journey, but worth it in the end (doesn’t mean it’s easy, but definitely why you are very strong and a survivor). This may be a short entree, but it’s full of love and support. Together we can make things better. I’m new to what it’s like from the “other” side of this condition too and the new treatments out there. For those parents wondering if there is an end to the condition…I’m living proof there is. I’m an encopresis survivor. Be strong and love your children for who they really are (not how the condition wants you to see them). You aren’t alone. It will be ok.
With an open mind, and an open heart…anything is possible! Remember that. xx <3
