Everytime i come on here.  There is a weight add at the top of the page with some hot woman in her panties or something. Showing her nice abs, hips, whatever.
  I'm not complaining about the woman. Just seems like such a slap in the face to anyone on here with an ostomy.  Could just be me, but there is an add on the side of this page which looks like the woman is pulling her shorts down to show everyone WHERE THE OSTOMY SHE DOESN'T HAVE WOULD BE.  hahah tongue
 
 Oh man, it's so obvious i have nothing to talk about ostomy wise.  Which just leads me to believe i'm finally getting better!!!   yeah

And complaining about getting up extra early to battle the weather --- well, you could be stuck in the house, still battling the a**!!!

Slice,
Figure out a way to do a sitz bath during your commute to work! Then you could make it a "spa" drive!

I never noticed the ad before, but now that you mentioned it, it is pretty irritating. My belly button will never look like that again! After two surgeries for endometriosis, an appendectomy, a sigmoid resection and an ileostomy, it would take an "extreme makeover" for my stomach to ever resemble the one in the ad...and I think I have had enough surgery. I have lost 25 lbs from my surgeries this winter...finally got to my goal weight, Sounds like all I had to do, according to the ad, is to drink tea...nuts..I should have done that instead.

Ahhhhhh thank you Ash, I had to click on the page a couple of times, but caught the black and white panty shot. But found it.

Slice, I always feel a little slapped in the face with these ads. So, if you go to photobucket you will all find that I got my perverse revenge....

I agree, those ads are so annoying. I'm glad BadBagGirl gave her an ostomy bag! tongue

The ads suck on this page as you say. I will never have a tummy like to one on the girl with the blue shorties, unless the show that 12-inch scar and the new 5-inch scar where my stoma was.

Oh dear, I have never noticed the little "twit" either--just kidding. Right now my biggest problem with my ostomy is my self image which is very, very low.
