Here’s the transcript & fab wordcloud from the tweet chat on 1st August – patients & nurses all talking about poo!
This Thursday 1st August at 8pm, We Nurses will be hosting a tweet chat about constipation problems, at my suggestion. Here’s my earlier blog on constipation induced by psychiatric medication, including 25 tips you can try for yourself. It is my most read blog piece ever. I guess that makes me some sort of Poo Queen. Hmm …
However, if it gets people talking about an important but often overlooked or covered up topic, that’s all to the good. Let’s break the taboo about poo and make a date in our diaries for this Thursday’s poo chat!
- My blog on the topic: Constipation: embarrassment, discomfort … and Poo Pride!
