I am sorry that you are faced with such hard decisions at such a young age. And what you are going through is really difficult I can see right now. But I think you are handling things well right now.
I had to edit your post today. We aren't suppose to talk about marijuana on the forum. Even if it is medical and legal for you.
I am glad you are seeing that you need your mom and I am glad she is helping you. Sounds like you are taking an adult role in life. How old are you, by the way? You sound mature. But I get the feeling that you are young. I am 53, so anything under that is young to me. lol...
Keep taking life one day at a time. I know, I am not in your situation, so I don't understand a lot. But I know that life is difficult for you, focus on the good things. It makes it a lot easier. You will figure out what clothes to wear. I would go with what is most comfortable for you. I don't know a lot about an ileostomy bag. But I know it is hard to deal with. But I really think you can handle it. I think you can handle whatever is thrown at you.
Keep posting, know that we are here for you. Tell me a little more about yourself, your age etc...
I hope that you feel better soon.
PS Do take your antidepressants as prescribed. Don't take two if you only are suppose to take one without talking to your doctor first. You have to take them regularly for a long time in order for them to work...
