Thank You to Our Amazing Ostomate Community

Jan 29, 2024 12:02 pm

This is not a report or an answer to some problem, it is just a thank you to all you guys for the help you give to our fellow ostomates. We have a great team here and I am so proud to not only be part of this group but for the friends I have met on here. We might not be doctors but we know how shit works. Blessings and regards to all of you new & old. Iggie

Thanks, Iggie.  

It's invaluable to have input from ostomates all over the world. From humor to repairing peristomal skin... it's all posted here.

Speaking of humor…

Iggie and others may not understand the following because it's a “U.S. tax thing,” but it made me 🤭 giggle then frown.

This is from The Washington Post's Mensa Invitational, where they invite readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.

Get ready, Americans. It's THAT time again $$$ and the word of the day is:

INTAXICATION: Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with.

And thank you, Iggie, for all your support to the group. Especially in helping me through a difficult decision.

I always make sure I owe Uncle Sam at tax time. No interest-free loans from me.

I think the new word describes politicians' delight when they spend and embezzle (through various schemes) tax cash.

And thanks to you, Iggie. I feel the same way.

You highlight what, for me personally, is the unique benefit of 'MeetanOstomate'...

Everyone has something valuable to contribute, and through all of us sharing, I personally, albeit late in my life, have learned the value of sharing - priceless and actually, uniquely special.
