Hi friends ..
I have had an an ostomy for about 5 years now. I've had issues every once and a while as we all do.. But the last few months, I've started to have severe leaking , which iOS not only painful, but it's causing me to run out of supplies. It's also really taking a toll on my quality of life. I have recently switched insurance companies and drs, and don't have an Ostomy nurse yet. As an example, I went to Disneyland this weekend with a friend for the holiday weekend, and this morning I had a banana at breakfast, which caused my bag to life off. I have gone through 5 bags today. By the time I had put the last one on.. My skin has become red and swollen, and soon, it will start to sweat with a yeast infection. I'm feeakimg out.. As I only brought 5 bags with me, so this is my last bag. I don't even know what I will do if I completely run out. I seriously can't love like this anymore .. And I feel like there isn't anyone who understands . I'm thinking about eating and drinking as little as possible just to be able to make it through tomorrow. Does anyone have any words of wisdom ?
Much appreciated .
