Miranda's story is absolutely amazing 😍 "I can't help but feel so overwhelmed with emotion. So I am going to share it💙
For 7 years each and every single day has been a struggle trying to find ways to help this little man deal with an impacted bowel. It's been SHIT(pun intended)
For my son this issue means that he no longer has the sensation to feel the need to do a poo. His bowel has been that stretched from 7 years of chronic constipation. This then leads to him having no control over his bowel and soiling his pants without realising he has done it😞
We have been under specialist for years, numerous treatments, to try and help and medication everyday just to get him to go to the toilet.
His mind and body have become completely shut down for a long time now.
What comes with this for an almost 10 year old boy is constant teasing in the school ground and at social events.
Days were I have to force him out of the car to face another day at school.
Anxiety where he has lost the ability to learn because he is so concerned about trying not to have an accident.
Loss of self esteem
Unhappiness and disappointment in himself
Up and down mood swings and constant discomfort.
For him this is devastating and as his parents this journey has been gut wrenching 😰
But I have to say we can FINALLY see a light at the end of the tunnel!!!! Three weeks in to this journey and he has only had ONE DAY of accidents. This is MASSIVE!!!!!!! We have decreased his daily medication to half 🙌🏼
I know it's early days but I will be forever grateful for the people who lead me to believe anything is possible. That anything is worth a shot. I know it's not a cure and I know we still have a long road ahead to get his bowel back to normal but I had to share incase this could potentially help someone else." #bellabodyproject #testimonial #chewies #childhealthstudy
