    Bruising?

    Hello everyone! I just finished my second Remicade infusion and I'm feeling great so far. The only thing is that I've noticed that I have a lot of bruises on my legs that I have no idea how I got. I don't remember crashing into anything, or being beaten lately...lol Is this possibly a side...

    A bit terrified

    Hi everyone! I haven't been on much as I've been having some major medical problems. It started off with an infection in my vagina and it's turned into a major Crohn's flare. The weird part is that it's not in my digestive system at all. I had a colonoscopy last month and all is clear! The...

    Surgery

    I'm freaking out! I finally got up the nerve to book an appointment with the surgeon to have my rectum and anus removed...October 27th I go to Mount Sinai in Toronto to see Dr. Zane Cohen (the head honcho no less!). I know it needs to be done, and that I'll feel better after, but I'm a big...

    What I did today :)

    I was asked by a friend a while ago to come into her school and speak about my stoma. At first I was all gung-ho about it and excited. I agreed immediately and didn't think much of it till last night. Then I got to thinking (which we all do), "what if they're grossed out?". Or, how will they...

    Not sure how I feel...

    So, this weekend I was out with friends for breakfast at a restaurant. Suddenly one of my friends hits me on the arm and says "bag!" and nods toward the corner. I didn't really clue in to what she was saying; I thought she was talking about someone's purse or shopping bag. I guess my look of...

    Wanna know how much I spend on supplies?

    I just did my taxes and totalled up all the ostomy supplies I paid for last year. This was actually a cheaper year for me because I was donated a bunch of stuff from another member on here. Also, keep in mind that this total is only for flanges, bags, and bag liners. I don't buy any of the...

    My life amuses me sometimes...

    So, today is a stay inside kind of day here in Ontario - there's an ice storm going on outside, and I'm kind of bored. So, I told my fiance to entertain me (he was lying on the bed at the time). So he said "I'm doing my mime impression of a farting rock"....lol And me, being the smartass I...

    An amusing Ooops

    My fiance and I were talking about me having to get up in the night to burp my bag and he said to me "why don't you just wear a bigger bag?". To which I replied, "I'd still have to get up to burp it!". To which he replied "No, I meant like a Hufty bag"....lol He meant to say Hefty bag (like a...

    Psoriasis

    Hello everyone, Well, as you can tell by the thread title, I want to ask about psoriasis. Do any of my fellow ostomites have it? I just recently developed it, and I have to say that it's really annoying! I have it across my scar, around the outside of my flange, and the worst place, my...

    Finally back!

    Hello everyone! Sorry for my absence this summer, especially since I was just made a moderator on the site! But, I have had the pleasure of spending most of my time without a phone, internet, or tv - which I initially thought would really suck...lol Turns out it was great! I'm going to try...

    Giggle of the day!

    A fellow Crohnie from another site posted these today and I thought I'd share. A laugh to get the day going :) A man went to the doctor and complained that he had the most terrible constipation. The doctor examined him and then gave him a prescription for some tablets to be taken last...
