March Goals

How did February go? I got sick, alot. I had not only one cold but two, coupled with an mild infection. I’ve had a ton of changes to my stoma supplies, so settling down into that routine has been challenging. But my goal of Journaling every day has been going strong. I’ve been able to document some key elements of my…

February 2019

Being Kept on My Toes   Stoma wise; prescription of my supplies has now been updated but still having some issues. One is the lack of barrier being authorised by my GP – on my to do list for an appointment for my ‘medication and appliance review’ with a GP in mid March. I do have some barrier to use in the…

February Goals

How did January go? January was a tad more unpredictable than I had anticipated. Whilst my health was still being managed, I found that the pain I was in was overwhelming too much of my other aspects of my life – my house, my relationship, my hobbies, my friendships, my work. So, I took some time to focus on me.…

January 2019

Low low Mood   Stoma wise; It’s been a month where body changes have contributed to my stoma changing too. When they say your stoma changes over time, I sort of thought, that it can’t be that much, it’ll be marginally but mine has changed a lot. In fact, so much so that I’ve moved up to the next cutting…

How did December go? After the battle of November with my health, this leached into December somewhat. I ended up being signed off work and having to get my arse into gear and figure out how to control my pain better. I began a new regimen and found that after ten days it needed adjusting again, just as I returned…

December 2018

Anti Climax   Stoma wise; increase in some particular issues – such as watery output, green output and some blood. However, now under control and explainable by the new medications and questions about my ovarian cysts and semi blockages; they have only resulted in a couple of sore moments and increase in my usage. Luckily, I’ve been well prepared and…

December Goals

How did November go? I felt very unwell this month, I won’t lie. Unwell enough to really need to see my IBD team but unable to get some face to face time, and several missed opportunities to talk to them. Everything that was niggling at me in October came full force in November – hitting me square between the (metaphorical)…

November 2018

Well well well.   Stoma wise; it has been abit more consistent this month. I got my defective products replaced and decided that ordering for Christmas was probably going to be a super productive idea. In theory it was, but it happened to come in three parcels and they were not light at all. And I’ve yet to unpack them…
