Ruminations on Constipation

The list of reasons why my clients cancel or fail to attend their appointments with me grows longer and stranger. Earlier posts have mentioned dentists and breathing clinics. Others not formally recorded in this blog include preferences for supermarket shopping, hairdressing appointments and fishing.

Today, my client explained over the ‘phone that he had experienced an uncomfortable side-effect of a recent change in his medication. The constipation per se was not the problem, rather it was the remedy he turned to which prevented him from straying far from home. Thankfully, he spared me the  graphic details, but maybe it was lax of me not to pursue this further.
