I knew you guys would be ready for a new story, and i haven't had enough people laugh at my expense today so i will share my latest paste debacle!
So today i go and change everything, get the paste on, put it all on, all is happy go lucky, but then i notice that the bandaid part is tucked up under the wafer, i am always doing that, i'm such a spaz!  So i have to change that of course.  Well, the old paste is all over me, so i have to try to get it off.  It's not only extremely sticky, but when you try to get it off it just spreads.  So I have an adhesive remover in one hand, and a towel covering my stoma to keep it from makign a mess, and so far it's allright, i use the remover and then of course have to wipe that off with a wet towel, so i get that and go to wiping.  But then i realize that the towel i am holding over my stoma is stuck to my fingers and to the side of my skin i havent' been working on!  so i have to get that off and that makes a mess, of course, so i get another towel, which also sticks to my fingers, now i have paste all over both hands, and keep sticking to the packaging of the adhesive remover wipes.  Well, this goes on for like 10minutes, and finally i get cleaned up, however it occurs to me at this point that i was just gonna put more paste on so i am not sure why i removed it all anyway.  But the paste is still all over my hands, and i can't wash them and hold the towel over my stoma at the same time.  I also can't unstick my hands from the towel, and i know that if i try to put the new flange on, it will just stick to me also.  SO i have to holler for my husband to come and help me, and he does, and then he says, Ok no more paste, i am ordering you some of those paste rings!
I think that is for the best

I've totally done stuff like this! You aren't a spaz! I am forever getting all the various sticky stuff we use all over the place. It ain't easy trying to deal with the time constraints of our stomas, AND perilously sticky substances all at once. LOL. Your hubby was really there for you - Hee, hee.

It's time for you to try the Eakin Seals NOW!! You just crack me up. I am watching Oprah, crying cuz it is sad, and then reading your post, and crying cuz I am laughing soooo hard!!! I'm glad Michel didn't had a hand in that sticky mess -- hey, I have an idea... give him some stomahesive paste to keep him busy the next time you want to "chat"!!!

Summer,
Thanks to Peggy and Amey's advice (and your mishaps), I'm off the paste and have switched to Eakin seals. Hey, if you give Michael a tube of paste to play with, he won't be leaving his toys all over the house, 'cause they'll all be stuck to him!! tongue
