Ostomates Embrace Life!

Posted by Angelicamarie

I heard from a friend I met in the 7th grade, it was really good to hear from her. She too has been through some storms, was in a car accident almost died stayed in hospital for quite some time. Then went to nursing home, however she’s a changed being. She shared her lost  with me, her sister had a ostomy  and could not live like that so she decided to end her life. Here we are still here of course it’s not easy, nor is life. Some of  our fellow ostomates are probably no longer with us. So for those of us that are still here let’s live , so many don’t get a second chance. In spite of the ostomy let’s embrace life as we enter the new year!! On those rainy days think of the ones that are no longer here, dust your knees off  and get up!! 

Thanks for your time my fellow ostomates!!! Live  Angelicamarie

Bill : Hello Angelicamarie. Thank you once again for an encouraging post and one which carries a message for everyone, with or without a stoma. Best wishes Bill
Luckylife60 : Been there many times , just didn't feel like fighting any more. Rear wound care leaking through my clothes, wraring a pull up, and female pads Front diarrhea constapation, and pain. Changing bags . Afraid to go to sleep fearing of leaks. It's been 3 months since the operation and things are getting better. My grandchildren need me. I wish the doctors told me more of what to expect.

Buffythevanpire : I like how everyone is encouraging each other. Great words ms. Angelica!
Angelicamarie : Hey Buffythevanpire , thanks for responding that’s what this site is about helping one another. I’m more compassion now than I was before the surgery, however I was led by the hand when I came to this site from some real people. Thanks again!! Happy new year!! Angelica
