Join the Largest Ostomy Community


I just want to reach other ostymates that are possible struggling with the change in life. I have realized that while they did save my life this life is not as easy for some (likeme) as it is for others. Some nights I am so accident prone that sleeping is not an option for me so if there is someone that is up that can truly understand my situation it would be great to talk to them. Others brush it off like its just easy to keep dealing with leaks and pain from soreness and it's NOT!
