Misconceptions By Non-Ostomates
I just had to add this short comment. Many of the people I come in contact with just assume that I'm a lazy person because I seem to be working on my project for so long. I had to put my kitchen on hold over the winter, until a short time ago. They know that I have an Ostomy but they could never understand the periodic restrictions that it imposes on everyday life when things go wrong and problems arise, like butt and belly pain which make it difficult to even walk , let alone do physical labor. Even something as mundane as painting is agony when the problems arise. I tried to begin explaining once but a very kind and helpful nephew immediately made it clear that this type of discussion was not going to happen. Now I just let them believe that I'm a little lazy or carefree about finishing my work and don't even try to explain my down times, it's just easier that way.
I find that most people just don't get it anyway so that's just the way it is. To quote Robert DeNiro ( Gangster role ) "it is what it is " and that's that !!
Bye for now.
