Hi.

What's wrong with being a 'leftie ' ?

There's nothing wrong with left handed people.

John ( scorsby) it was an example I was giving on how hung up people could be or rather how " needing" to connect with people in similar boat. Just like how some non smokers wont date,smokers. Preference. The point of my questions were to ask why do we need to connect with others like us?. Did u read all answers. ? It just seemed to me over the last two months of my new membership, reading about single people or widowed people thinking if they must have another partner, what's the importance of a partner same,as you ( with a,stoma).

 

or in lesser terms another leftie. Having a hard time thinking if a,stoma person is thinking that partner stoma,is the end all be,all person in their life.

Hey Warrior, 

I would guess that having a relationship with another Ostomate would be the only way to decide if it was a good idea or not. I hope to never be in the situation to have to decide that! I would hate to be fighting for the bathroom when an explosion occurs! Having three bathrooms definitely helps but you know what I mean. Lol

i don’t Have enough closet space for more supplies that I have!  Lots of things to consider. But when things happen, go with it!

ha ha explosions? Geez.. I dont get those. Only time I need for bathroom is to drain and most times its not urgent. Replacing the appliance can be done in laundry room as long as there is a sink there. No I'm thinking if I were to get involved with another ostomate, I'm just not sure if I could see a better future than one without a stoma.

I know it does happen where ostomates bond immediately. But should it be a factor for. Ltr?

Haha Warrior, 

i don’t have explosions either but you just never know. Lol  I irrigate so on rare occasion when I do have small amounts to drain, it is never an emergency! There was a time that happened though! Those first few months without the right supplies for me were hell!
