I knew you guys would be ready for a new story, and i haven't had enough people laugh at my expense today so i will share my latest paste debacle!
So today i go and change everything, get the paste on, put it all on, all is happy go lucky, but then i notice that the bandaid part is tucked up under the wafer, i am always doing that, i'm such a spaz! So i have to change that of course. Well, the old paste is all over me, so i have to try to get it off. It's not only extremely sticky, but when you try to get it off it just spreads. So I have an adhesive remover in one hand, and a towel covering my stoma to keep it from makign a mess, and so far it's allright, i use the remover and then of course have to wipe that off with a wet towel, so i get that and go to wiping. But then i realize that the towel i am holding over my stoma is stuck to my fingers and to the side of my skin i havent' been working on! so i have to get that off and that makes a mess, of course, so i get another towel, which also sticks to my fingers, now i have paste all over both hands, and keep sticking to the packaging of the adhesive remover wipes. Well, this goes on for like 10minutes, and finally i get cleaned up, however it occurs to me at this point that i was just gonna put more paste on so i am not sure why i removed it all anyway. But the paste is still all over my hands, and i can't wash them and hold the towel over my stoma at the same time. I also can't unstick my hands from the towel, and i know that if i try to put the new flange on, it will just stick to me also. SO i have to holler for my husband to come and help me, and he does, and then he says, Ok no more paste, i am ordering you some of those paste rings!
I think that is for the best
