THIS HAPPENED: My bag flew off my body and splashed (truly, splashed) onto the floor
Growing through the failures of my ostomy.
Now I feel it's my turn to spread the good word about being an ostomate.
Moving forward means embracing my new normal and learning to laugh about it.
So much of my life has changed since having ileostomy surgery.
This surgery can affect how ostomates perceive themselves.
This comic was my anthem. My ode to badassery.
One day after surgery the pain was very present, very uncomfortable, very real.
