People Make The World Go Round
I am referencing a comment that I had read on someone's blog concerning laxatives. So, I asked my pharmacist about this particular laxative mentioned in the blog. He explained it very well and I was able to better understand the pros and cons of this product. He went on to explain that since it is a laxative one can become dependent on it. I have heart problems. So, before I could take that particular laxative, I would have to consult my primary doctor. My pharmarcist knows that I have a stoma. He made a comment that laxatives are for normal people. I really dont think he meant any harm by it. Truly I hope he knows better than that. At least I think he does when it comes to making such a comment. I am normal. The only difference is our plumbing. He goes out of his backside and my waste comes out of the stoma site.
After surgery we have to change how we dress and sometimes change what we eat because of our altered or new digestive system. I still have two arms,two legs and a beating heart. Without a doubt if one can't deal with it mentally that could cause a problem. As far as I'm concerned, I'm normal. No pity for me!
There are people out here with no arms or legs, they are just happy to be alive. There are people who take meds daily to slow the cancer process down who are still going to die. There are people living with aids. who have been told they are going to die but take meds to live, just a little bit or a whole lot longer than those who have already died from the disease. So, even on my lowest days,I think of others that have different sicknesses and are still fighting to live for as long as they can! I dust my knees off and be thankful I'm still here. Ignorant people will always be around. Educate when you can and if u cant, its not your problem. life is living and the world goes round and round. People make it!
