#CPChatNow Recap- 7-12-2017

Wednesday, July 12th, 2017 saw participants gather for our typical Wednesday night #CPChatNow Twitter chat. Considering context though, you could define “typical” with the word extraordinary. At least that remains my biased opinion as #CPChatNow co-host Zachary Fenell.

The communal atmosphere and ability to learn from one another all while enjoying ourselves makes our Twitter chat standout. Do you want proof the above happens? Keep reading!

Susanne Kate Brasset started getting the dialogue going by asking others about their experiences receiving botox injections. A topic on Susanne’s mind given her next botox treatment loomed.

Zachary answers Susanne's question, sharing he received botox from the ages 12 to 16.I shared I underwent botox treatment between the ages 12 and 16. However, we discontinued because the results did not seem worth the hassle. Co-host Devin Axtman also discussed undergoing botox treatment.

Co-host Devin Axtman remembers undergoing botox treatment in fourth and fifth grade.Devin explained the botox helped him feel a lot looser but to get the injections doctors needed to put him under general anesthesia. While the botox discussion continued, our resident celebrity Maysoon Zayid made time in her busy schedule to stop in and say hello.

Maysoon Zayid takes time out of her hustle to say hello to CPChatNow.A little later on a newcomer joined in, seeking advice regarding a particular issue.

Newcomer Grace asks #CPChatNow about remedying pain caused by temperature changes.In an effort to best answer Graces question I asked follow-up questions. I wound up recommending a product I like to use, ICYHOT.

Rachel Folly cracks a joke after Zachary recommends to Grace a product to help relieve pain.Rachel Folly sought the opportunity to use her “Them’s the rules” line. Comments I explained to Grace represented an inside joke. Not actual rules!

Zachary explains the "them's the rules" comment to be an inside joke.

Through continuing dialogue we learned Grace discovered us thanks to Maysoon’s earlier tweets. Anyways, shall we get serious and re-visit Grace’s question? Answer for the week’s extend-the-conversation question, “How do you handle pain caused by changes in temperatures?” Leave your reply in the “Comments” section.
