We’ve heard the expression, used it ourselves, possibly, and it makes sense a lot of the time. As an ex Electrician, Trouble Shooter, Time & Methods Tech and Engineering Project Manager, I’ve always been in the business of fixing broken stuff or improving equipment and/or processes. Now that I have my own equipment and processes to deal with daily I’m trying to make it all as good as it can be for myself and anyone I can help. We’re all different in some respects and there are so many variables. The shape, size and location of our stomas, ileo or colo or uro, the shape of our bellies and our skins’ ability to handle the adhesives are just some of the things we address regularly and they’re not the same for all of us. They\\\\\\\'re also the things like the hands we need to care for ourselves. Our dexterity differs and some may suffer with arthritis or other limiting factors. Then there’s the mental and emotional components and the differences abound.
I consider myself blessed or just lucky depending on who\'s evaluating. I’ve used the same type of supplies for 2-1/2 years, change every 7 days and managed the couple skin problems fairly simply. That’s after 2 months of experimenting. That’s just me and I pray others could have at least that level of success but again, we’re all different. My whole point here is, maybe we should not wait ‘till it breaks before we try to make it better. It’s a question. There’s so much expertise here and so many people just itching to help make it as good as it can be.
