Spring is in the air and it won’t be long before I am back down the beach again. Although I mainly wear bikinis I do like to have all in one swimsuit as well so I have an option. There are many options available from a range of ostomy companies and non-ostomy companies.
Last year I wrote a blog post titled ‘What a Year…’ well, I think this year has definitely trumped 2017!
It never ceases to amaze me just how things work out exactly how they are meant to! Sometimes, this may not be the way we would like at the time but ultimately down the line, we see the reason why it went a particular way.
Last year across my social media I talked about not having any resolutions for 2018 (I just do not keep them) Instead, I came up with a theme and that was ‘Stepping out of my comfort zone’
Boy...have I done that this year!!
Today's #UroStories we have the lovely and inspiring Lani Chester joining us who is 24 from Haywards Heath, Sussex.
Take it away Lani...
Welcome back to #UroStories and today we have the lovely and supportive Ros, 50 from Suffolk sharing her story...
I don’t think this is a secret anymore but I really struggle to turn my brain off! It is always ticking over usually work-related or ostomy related and I struggle switching this off. Sometimes, this can impact my relationships and make me not present in the moment which can be tough for family and friends!
Today for #UroStories we have my good friend and double ostomate Vikki Palmer, 48 from Minster Near Ramsgate sharing her story...
To be honest I don’t really know this answer!
All I know is one year I had the flu jab and ended up very poorly and in hospital, since then I had been avoiding getting it done and my septic admissions seem to fall during this time. However, there probably were times of better health I could have had this done.
Good morning and welcome to another #UroStories! Today we have the amazing Wilma Gray, 55 from Blyth Northumberland sharing her story.
I mentioned in last week’s blog post about achieving another personal goal on the 17th-18th October flying to Copenhagen on my own.
Now, I am not really a fan of flying. I tend to get very nervous and don’t particularly like all the sounds on the plane. It is so surreal to think up until this year I put off going abroad because of my stomas and regular septic admissions and now I have been abroad quite a few times. Please read this post for some more practical tips when flying with a stoma (or 2).
Good morning and welcome to another #Urostories where we have the lovely and inspiring Toni from Warwickshire sharing her story.
I am sat here on a windy, wet Saturday (22nd September) in my quirky flat reminiscing on the last 2 weeks! It has been absolutely incredible and a rollercoaster of emotions! I knew September was going to be full on but I didn’t anticipate just how busy it would be and I am super proud that my body managed to get through the taxing schedule.
So, this is what I have been up to…
Good morning and welcome back to #UroStories! I am sorry I have missed the last 2 Mondays due to my busy schedule but I am back to normality now!
For today's #UroStories we have the amazing and lovely Susan Corley who is 65 years young! Susan helps support many people in the support groups sharing her story and experience. So, take it away, Susan...
Today for #UroStories we have Richard Cornell who is 80 from Cambridge sharing his story! Richard is active on social media by commenting on posts and helps others adjust to their stoma or stomas!
So, take it away Richard...
Today is the 1st of September and this marks the first day of ‘Urology Awareness Month’ organised by The Urology Foundation.
Did you know that 1 in 2 of the population will be affected by a urology condition in their lifetime?
This figure is really high yet there still seems to be a taboo attached to urological diseases and interventions.
Last week, it was pointed out to me how quickly I answer my emails and how hard I have been working over last few weeks (probably the last few months). On reflection, I have hardly had a day off for a really long time, where I have not been on my laptop working on my range of projects.
I have always been a big fan of Fearne Cotton and when last year I heard she had written a book ‘Happy’ I was keen to read it and popped it on my reading list. So at the beginning of this month, I decided to purchase the audiobook because I knew I was travelling quite a bit and I love Fearne’s energy when she talk’s and wanted to hear this come through.
Today for #UroStories we have the inspiring Leigh Weaver 49 from Mobile, Alabama sharing his story and his hints and tips.
Take it away Leigh...
