It’s world ostomy day! My ostomy gives me freedom, but I know my surgery is looked down upon by many. Life is not over after surgery; it’s just beginning. I hope some of these photos are able to compensate for my lack of words today. I am worn out and mentally sluggish, but I hope I am still able to inspire people to get out and enjoy life without allowing their ostomy to be a primary obstacle holding them back. If you have questions about anything you see here, please ask by commenting at the end of the post or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Your questions help me decide which topics to tackle! As always, feel free to ask me absolutely anything.
A word of caution: These photos show my best days while ignoring everything in between. I plan to address that issue through writing over time. If you’re feeling discouraged because of your ostomy, it’s okay, and you are not alone. Let’s talk.
P.S. My apologies to any readers who know me well enough to worry about me. I appreciate your concern and support.
