CrohnieCJ, I loved reading about
your resourcefulness, practicalness and imagiation in figuring out what would do the same trick as a convex wafer or that stomaplex. So sensible and down to earth, in a situation that made me and a lot of us totally flip out and believe we needed extra-special and expensive stoma proudcts. The problems are generally mechanical when there is a leak, so it makes so much sense to take a household thing and give it a new purpose. I remember that I could only accept myself having a stoma from the point when I started managing it as a 100% practicle, rather than an emotional issue.
Also is about
taking control of the matter ourselves instead of waiting helpless for the nurse to come with a product or calling the surgeon, who we expect to know as much as Gd, but who can't do much more beyond operating on us. Sometimes the solution to a problem is lying somewhere around the house.
