Hi and welcome to my blog. I’m single, 31 years old and an Australian. For those that don’t know, I am an encopresis survivor. I had it, undiagnosed, til I was about 15 years old. There are many children and their families going through this but not many patients/survivors open up and share their experiences to help others understand it and prove that there is light at the end of the tunnel. I personally know what it feels like to have the physcial pain of poop not coming out (no matter how hard I try), having suppositories and having NO pain/sensations/smelling senses to know what’s happening. I’m here to help and offer what I can, and more. I was constantly bullied at school, had no real friends, no social and no boyfriends…but I also never took drugs/smoke/drink alcohol. If any readers out there have suggestions for my blog, questions, etc then please let me know.
As a survivor I gave gained a lot more confidence in myself and my potential (especially since I finished school). I’m in the process of writing a book about my experiences, things I’ve learnt in my research and what other parents have shared to me about their experiences. I also have a youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/naturegirl015) that you’re welcome to visit (and share). Now I’m a trainee circus trainer at the Sandfly Circus (including training to do aerials acts, something I would never have imagined myself doing when I had enco).
I’m also well travelled and have travelled around the world ever since I was 13 years old.
My dream is to be an author & actress, especially for Doctor Who. I play video games/computer games, love to read books, circus, TV/movie extra, performing onstage. Anything else you want to know, just ask.
I have created a Facebook group unique just for us (people who have encopresis, not parents unless they had it personally) here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/250860305044481/
Thank you for reading, and spread the word. 🙂
