Whatever you celebrate or don't celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful season. May your stomas be healthy, and your bags not leak! May all the goodies you indulge in not get stuck or irritate. May you not suffer through the itchies!!! :)
Seriously, you guys have probably saved my life. Or at least saved my chances at having a good one. Someone said in another post that it's great having this board, because even our spouses and closest loved ones just can't offer what we get here. As much as they support and love us, it's great to have the support of people with ostomies. The advice I get here is invaluable. Everyone is nice, helpful, and so willing to share it all. Who understands all about poop better than us?
So, since I can't send you cards, this is my "Holiday Message" to you all.
