Throw back. September 18th, 2017
Okay so I talked about this on my insta story, but I thought I would talk more about it. As you can see from this tweet (and pictures if you swipe right) I was really sad and depressed this time last year, which was right after I got out of the hospital.
I remember crying every day because I felt so alone. Which was silly because I wasn’t alone. I had my family and boyfriend supporting but none of them felt what I was feeling. They didn’t have a ileostomy or almost die from being septic. They did lose a bunch of weight and look totally different. I just felt so lost and alone. And that was a horrible feeling.
I don’t want anyone to feel this way. And I’m showing you guys this tweet and the pictures because I want you to know a few things: 1) everyone has bad days, 2) it’s okay to be upset and mad, 3) YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I promise you this. You are not alone. Even if you feel like you are. You aren’t. There are so many of us living with a ileostomy. Loving life and rocking that bag! I promise we are here for you. Always.💗
I really hope this made sense and helps. I also want to share more about this. I had a journal during this time, so I if I can find it. I’ll do another post. I just want to bring some awareness to this. Because I’m sure plenty of ostomates, have felt like this before.❤️
