New Book Launched
Hi Everyone, This has been an exciting week for me. On July 7th my book launched titled Stanley and Me make three. We know this journey very well and I promised myself, once my health started to improve, I would write a book to help others walking a similar path.
In the beginning, it was a small journal which simply evolved. As time went on and after attending several support groups, I decided that my goal was to give back and to help others faced with this surgery. As I shared previously on different posts, I felt so alone and isolated while I was sick. Immediately following surgery, I did not know anyone with an ostomy to confide about my fears of living life with a stoma and a bag. Once again, I experienced those feelings of isolation and loneliness and I loathed those feelings. I fought them every single day for approximately two months post surgery. As my journal began to take shape as a book, I also began to feel better and stronger. I researched publishers and found a company who was interested in my story and my mission. This is a story of Hope as Hope is the antidote for fear. Stanley and Me make three is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble and the Tate publishing website. Please let me know what you think. I really love the cover as it is reflective and inspiring - I helped design it:) Thanks again friends and fellow ostomates. Sincerely, LadyHope aka Jayne Prescott
