How are you? I hope you are all safe, healthy and happy. I found this article posted online recently about a 2 year old boy experiencing a “poo explosion” at the shops, in public. I don’t know if he has Encopresis or not, but the moral of the story is what I love. Here is the link to the article:
Everyone in that shop was kind and very empathetic in helping the family with the clean up and waiving the bill. After reading this article and how the parents can see a happy side to it all (and how the general public handled it too) it makes me feel happy inside. This is more preferable than to be yelled at or be told that I was “an embarrassment to be out in public” with during my personal experiences with Encopresis. I wish I was there to lend a hand and support.
At the end of the article it says this:
As for advice for other parents who find themselves the victim of a public poo explosion, Amy says try to remember that it will be funny … one day.
“You’ll get through it, even though it doesn’t seem so at the time, and at least you’ll have a good story to tell at their 21st Birthday!”
The Encopresis journey may be hard now, but it does get better. There is light at the end of the tunnel. You are not alone anymore. Let me know what you think about this. What are your thoughts/experiences? Tell me below or you can e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Stay strong, happy and never stop being who you are inside. Take care and enjoy the weekend,
