Jen shares a very personal story about feeling suicidal before her ileostomy surgery, and how her dog Bella prevented her from making a dangerous decision that she would have regretted. Bella takes great care of Jen and has given her a reason to get up in the morning, even on the darkest days.
Billie used to ride ponies before she became unwell and had stoma surgery. She’s promised herself she’ll get back in the saddle one day, but for now she is more than happy to walk her neighbour’s dog, Beau, and is feeling grateful for the positive affect Beau has had on her.
In this month’s blog, Steve shares how even his worst experiences helped shape the person he is today, and why he looks for the positive in everything, including the pain and trauma of his emergency stoma surgery.
Billie lost her job due to the coronavirus pandemic and was upset at first, but now she’s realised it was a blessing in disguise and has been using her new freedom to rediscover her passions during lockdown.
