I am super late to this this thread but wanted to know if DeanneCanadianGirl chose to reverse. I see myself in her post and wonder if the reversal is worth having.
Unlike others who responded, I didn't struggle at all with the idea of having to deal with my stoma. I was utterly fascinated and wanted to know everything. I wanted to do all of the care myself and don't mind the day to day care at all. I worry about the prospect of being alone and unloved because of it but that is the only thing that makes me sad about having a stoma.
If there is anyone still reading this, please respond.
Hi Southpaw. I have no business replying to this post except I never communicated with a jazz singing, vamp bassist, upright or electric. The bass, that is. You're certainly unique and you'll most probably do the right thing for yourself. I don't think you should ever worry about being alone and/or unloved. I think lots of folks would treasure your company.
Anytime any post to a thread, old or new it gets noticed and that imo is a good thing. As far as a reversal, I can't have one and am okay with that. As far a the prospect of being alone and unloved because of it, I can't imagine the sadness I would have for knowing I chose someone so superficial to begin with if they didn't love me anymore because of a stoma.
Life is not easy for most folks for many reasons, but a stoma is manageable.
Right ON!!! Thank you very much, Mrs. A., for both responding and making a ridiculously powerful point!
