"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

A baby lives in the womb for nine months. The baby is comfortable and don't have to do anything. He/she gets food from the mother, gets carried around all day.

Sleeps whenever he/she wants to, it's peaceful and calm and life is good. For a season that's healthy , the baby is growing and maturing that's the ways it's designed,

If the infant stays in the womb too long, he/she outgrows the space. When it comes through the birth canal  it's tight, uncomfortable and traumatic.

Now all HELL breaks loose! he/she thinks what is wrong with mama? Have she lost her mind? He/she is being pushed, squeezed and pressured. Finally he/she comes out and breathes new life.

Using tha above as an analogy, it brings me to this point. Before sickness hit, I was in my comfort zone. Then I was pushed because of surgery that changed and saved my life. We all go through different changes after that.

Some are listed below:

Rejected/husband,wife and lover

Betrayal/Someone whom we thought was a friend

Loss/Someone or something


New birth has occurred-yes a door was closed but another opened. I wouldn't have known my strength, what looked like a dissapointment was a birth.

Today is a new Day!

Best Wishes,
