With the risk of becoming an “over poster”, I was getting a bit freaked out at staring at my face when I logged on to the site. I wanted to share this with you all. I found this website last night (while my UC was preventing me from sleeping) called Uncover Ostomy . There is also a Facebook fan site. Anyway I found this site pretty awesome because well lets face it…this chick makes having an Ostomy HOT! Crap, if I could look like her, I’d sign up to have my ileostomy sooner…I think facing this future, especially as a woman I fear intimacy and self image the most and I found it overly comforting to find Jessica’s story, her bravery, and her “take me as I am” attitude. I think this could be a big boost to us all that are living with this or facing it in the near future. On her facebook fan page there were T-shirts that said “Bag Lady” and “No Colon, Still rollin”….which I LOVED.
Continuing with the same theme, I’ve been thinking about what I’m going to do to make my 9 months of living with the ostomy easier. I’ve heard a lot about the Phoenix Belt as well as the belts/wraps from OstomySecrets , Stealth Belt , and Ostomy Armor .
Has anyone tried any of these products? Any thoughts/reviews?
