Shower!🚿

I thought I would show you guys what I used to shower with my port! (Swipe right to see the shower shield)

So this is called Shower Shield. In my opinion it works so much bette than press and seal or Saran Wrap. The edges stick to the skin and seal, so your port doesn’t get wet.-it honestly works wonders!! The one I’m using is 7x7 but they also have 9x9 which is way to big for me. lol

Like I said this is amazing and thanks to it, I can finally take a real shower! Which I’ve missed like crazy! Lol you can gets these on amazon but the Company that supplies my TPN, sends it to me. If you have any questions, just ask guys!❤️

A rainy Sydney and a long day... How I wish I was back on this rooftop basking in the sun with my belly out!! People always ask me how I became confident enough to wear a bikini in public.
Well, I’m too proud for my own good and had my first surgery at the start of Australian summer, so my forced recovery period was great for spending a bit of time at the beach and testing out my new bag which meant no more running to the toilet at the beach. And I also needed to prove to myself, more than anyone else, that having a stoma wasn’t a negative that needed to be hidden and ashamed of.

However, I still do have my moments where wearing a one-piece is not a fashion but a comfort choice. Days where I want to be out and about, but keep my stoma and scars to myself.
And I think that that is my normal. You might never want to show your belly, you might always want to...it’s about accepting your “normal” on any specific day, and accepting that it might be different from the day before!! Accept your normal!!

These two nurses have known me since the very first time I was admitted to hospital with Ulcerative Colitis (when I didn't even know what inflammatory bowel disease was!)🏥🤕 They have always been so lovely and cheerful😊👩🏻‍⚕️💖 and looked after me so well when I was receiving my Infliximab treatment!💉💊 they are a credit to the NHS!🏆😇 Today I was back for another Pre-op Assessment before my surgery to have one of my stoma bags removed! 🎉😄They tried 5 times to get a blood sample but my veins have been so damaged over the past 8 years they had to give up!😰 Anyone got any tips for how I can improve my veins before my next surgery??

#ootd I don't think I've worn this dress for like a year or two? I can't remember! I don't own many patterned dresses but I think the giraffes are mega cute on this one! It's brilliant what tights can do in regards to holding Stevie the Stoma in place and less visible! I mean come on, #whatbag ? 😉 🌟
I do like the weekends! They give me the chance to be clean, smell nice, wear dresses and pretend to be a girl! It's a brilliant contrast to the 'work me' or the 'tired me' that I see most days of the week 😂

The joys of back problems! I have done my back out a few times now before surgery and have always used a corset as support. It's a bikers corset and always feels amazing. This week I did my back out for the first time since surgery and I wasn't sure if I'd be able to use my beloved corset due to Stevie the Stoma as the corset sits tight and hard around that a full area, but I couldn't work without it so I just had to try it and hope for the best. And guess what, it worked! I am so grateful that I could use my corset despite my ostomy. Thanks to being able to wear it I have been able to work but also get better! 💪💪💪

Having an ostomy doesn’t mean you can’t swim, travel, vacation with your friends, wear that bikini...let this summer be the summer you embrace your life🦋

💚 The frequent bathroom trips, the accidents, the bag leaks. Because Shit Happens sometimes that are beyond our control! Have I felt embarrassed/judged/scared to talk about this before? Absolutely! But it happens and over the years I’ve learned that the more open I am about it, the happier I feel.

💜 I’ve been so inspired by hearing and seeing others on IG be so open about IBD & ileostomies and I want to do the same for others. You’re not alone! and if you want to talk you can always DM me.

"With the pressure of social media and advertising, finding peace with your own body can be hard enough, let alone with a stoma. I (@mrcolitiscrohns) am now confident in my own skin, but coming to terms with a major body adaptation has been really hard at times.I’ve learnt you shouldn’t base your worth on what some deem ‘attractive’ - the problem is not with you and your body, it’s with society. I’ve learnt to respect my body and I refuse to be ashamed when the alternative was so awful. My stoma has given me a better quality of life and I’ve learnt to embrace it. It’s all about perspective.

I am excited to launch a new website! This is a project I’ve been working on for a little while now and I’m very excited to share it with you. Started as a self development blog, Mr. Colitiscrohns was created in 2004 when I was lying in a hospital bed and it has transcended into something well beyond expectation. Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis affects more than 300,000 people in the UK alone. I wanted to help create a voice for those that are suffering, as well as influence positive change.

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.❤️
