These are the top 5 issues ostomates face:

1. Dating and relationships
2. Concealing the pouch
3. Foods to eat and avoid
4. Losing or gaining weight
5. Pouch ballooning

Good morning Angelicamarie and fellow ostomates! I am sitting on couch watching European football matches all day while it pours out with four little dogs! Hope you all have a spectacular day! Life is good! 😊😇

Hello Angelicamarie.

Thank you for your upbeat post, which came at just the right time to move my thoughts away from the mess our world seems to be moving towards, and prompted me to contemplate more pleasant things.

For this reason, I have foegone my temptation to share a rhyme befitting of 'Black History Month', in favour of one that is more relevant to your own correspondence on this site over the years. 

Best wishes

Bill

 

IT IS SO GOOD TO TALK TO YOU.

It is so good to talk to you.
For you are one of just a few.
Although we sometimes don’t agree.
You always show respect for me.

You have a non-judgmental air.
And you always seem to care.
You show an interest so intense.
It’s genuine, with no pretence.

You listen to my tails of woe.
As if you’ve nowhere else to go.
You always seem to comprehend.
And act like you are my best friend.

I’ve tried to talk to other folk.
But wish my words I could revoke.
To talk to them is not the same.
With critical response and blame.

It’s so good to have discussions.
Without fear of repercussions.
As we have talked I think you know.
That talking’s helped our friendship grow

When I am in your company.
I feel you have more empathy.
A natural propensity.
To listen with intensity.

I like to talk when you are there.
For you are never doctrinaire.
You always keep an open mind.
You’re never anything but kind.

You make me feel I’m not alone.
When we talk upon the phone.
Be it by email or by blog.
I love constructive dialogue.

I would like to congratulate.
The way that you communicate
I always feel you understand.
And with your words you hold my hand.

Through the troubled paths I tread.
I remember things you’ve said.
It may sound twee but it is true.
It’s been so good to talk to you.

It is hard to think you are going into summer and SC is going into winter.

Hi everyone

I'm afraid to say no sunshine here only wind and rain 🌧️. Axl I'm so jealous I think you should throw a barbie and invite all of us over. I promise I will bring a dozen breadcakes might even stretch to a few buns. XX ❤️
