I got a colostomy about three months ago and lately I am going to the bathroom just a much as before but now I am just pooping large amounts of mucous. I do have a few abcesses that are still draining and I know it is common for people with ostomies to still poop mucous. But whats the point of a colostomy if you are still going to the bathroom a lot. I am just frustrated I was never one of the most confident people then I got crohns and I just started to get confident with myself. Now I have to learn it all over again because I have this stupid bag hanging from my stomach that collects poop for the world to see because I refuse to wear clothes that are haning off of my and make me look bigger that I already am just to cover the thing from hell. I know I just started rambeling about something completely different but cant I just say I hate my life and not have people tell me to suck it up, look on the bright side, or hey at least your not dead. Do you know what I want to tell those people go **** themselves. All I want is to be confident and if I have to have this god forseckin thing then I shouldnt be going to the bathroom like I used to.
