I don't know if its allowed to use the post simply to address others on the site, but i sincerely felt the need to send this post out to Ash and Considering. You guys really don't know how much your thoughts about my concerns mean to me. first stomagrrl was kind enough to give me her myspace and post pics of her actual ostomy and post surgery just for me to see, then considering with that educational video, and ash with in 5mins of considering (mayb even before) posted the pics in her clothes so i could see that you can't tell.
Ash and considering, you guys literally made me cry just knowing that someone understands all the crazy thoughts and fears that come along with this decision. And to think that you guys would remember me by name, its really truly appreciated.
Considering, i already posted that i'm gonna watch the rest with my mom this evening. But the parts iv seen already have already made me at ease.
Ash, you look awesome! i would never know! honestly, when u said u were gonna post, i thought ok, she's around my age, my size, she's gonna post pics in cute little baby dolls dresses and baggier jeans then im used to wearing. But no, u look awesome! Also, i know how it may have been a big step for you to post the pics, even though ur face doesnt show, its still a very private and challenging thing to do. ur soooo brave!
Once again, i dont think i can express enough how grateful i am for all of you guys. God does answer prayers, and you all are like my angels.
Thanks again and again and again
