Hi everyone! It's been a while since I have been on here.I could not log back on here with my original user name and password for some reason.SO i am now Dee H not DH. Had to start a new account.Well anyway, I have had this colostomy for about 4 and a half years now.And I have gotten pretty much adapted to this condition.However i still find myself in embarrasing situations once in a while. I do not usually have problems with gas. But the other day while I was sitting at my desk at work I passed a little gas.And of course we ostomates cannot hold ours in. Well anyway, one of my coworkers made the remark that it smelled like someone farted that it was like rotten eggs.Well that sure made me feel awkward.I never told my coworkers about my ostomy.This is a fairly new job and i don't feel compfortable about telling them at least not yet.And I do not feel its any of there buisness anyway. So I just sat there and didnt say anything. But I was so embarrassed and humiliated by this and thiught that maybe i should mention my condition in case it happens again. So now i am so worried about gas that i barely eat anything at work anymore.And all because of an ignorant and immature coworker.
