it's easier than you think - i made a resolution to tell people as a first step to overcoming this lifestyle-limiting affliction. when people say did you have a good xmas? i say yes i am so happy because i have discovered the parcopresis website. it's so good to have an official name for it. when i told my sister on the phone, she was mildly amused and intrigued but we quickly moved onto other topics. then i told my best friend as an explanation as to why i couldn't go on holiday with him and to my surprise he didn't bat an eyelid- he even said that one of his work colleagues has the same problem. i am hoping that next time a friend asks me to go on holiday that i will accept the invite and tell them about parcopresis and that i would just need them to leave me alone in the house for half an hour every morning. wish me luck!
