Well i found Healingwell through having my ileostomy i post on the ostomy forum too, then i seen this one.
I had my ileostomy performed in Feb 06, reason being while i was giving birth to Sean my bowel was damaged it has not been good since he was born, poor wee soul nothing to do with him but certain midwives i was under the care off. Anyway i had the op to repair my bowel and got the stoma bag just while everything was healing but it's been 2 yrs now and i'm fighting to get a reversal done, my doc says he won't do it until i lose 3 stones, so no matter how much i try i can't shift the weight, i have since had a 2 opinion done and they say they will do it at the end of Jan.
While having to go through all this i had post natal depression because of all of what happened, then in March this year my husband off 9 yrs " came out" devastated i felt i couldnt go on or be a mum, i sunk very deep, but having my health visitor, doctor, councellors and most importantly my family, i
have made it through the other side, don't get me wrong i have very bad days when i can't do anything, but i have these 2 wee boys waiting to be looked after, so hence i pick through the bad days. I found a new relationship with my husband ( we are separated not divorced,) we have become very close friends and he is still a loving father but it's so hard him being out there living a life without me now, i feel he has died but he hasnt hes going through life without me now. Tom his new partner is very nice and kind, the boys love him but they only know him as daddys friend.
So thats all for now it's quite alot for me to write but there you go, Gillian x
