What Not to do list – no longer applies


From the archives of my previous thoughts. This was my “What Not to Do” list when I approached my ostomy surgery. One by one these things are being checked off my New “To Do” List (disclaimer: CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR FIRST) And just because I am willing to do them, doesn’t mean you will. I just want to offer up my transition for your reflection:

  • Don’t look at the bag
  • Don’t take off the bandage
  • Don’t wear belts anymore
  • Don’t be naked
  • Don’t enjoy sex
  • Don’t lay on your stomach
  • Don’t wear a bathing suit
  • Don’t go boating
  • Don’t go camping
  • Don’t tell anyone
  • Don’t feel normal anymore
