I've had a colostomy bag for almost two years. If I had health insurance, and had a better job, I could have had it reversed by now... My story is a long one...

I'm here to give and receive support. I also want to know about the products you use and how you would improve them.

I'm not actually from Kansas City. I'm from a really small town in Kansas. My ostomy specialist was a good friend of my boss. I was soooo happy to see her in my hospital room. She started support groups for ostomy patients in our area. Everyone loved her... She took her own life a week before Christmas last year. She was a mother of two young boys.

So... I'm here to support and help... and I may need support and help at times too. I had a roommate who helped me with everything bag-related, but he moved out a couple of months ago and it's been rough without him. (He still comes over to help me change bags when he can).

Stay strong. <3
