I feel the same way as Vette Guy, both for work reasons and personal reasons. No one needs to know! I think since this is the second time you have brought this question up you probably are conflicted still about
telling people. In all honesty, what good do you think will come of it? You also don't have to sit on anyone's lap ever, even if you are the smallest in the group.
As I mentioned in my last post regarding this subject, I have shared many a room with traveling companions and no one has ever questioned my time spent in the bathroom and since I have a jpouch it's probably more frequent, especially at night, than an ostomy. No one notices nor do they care.
