Great news friends! I was recently contacted by Christine Kim, Founder of Ostomy Connection. As you know, if you’ve been reading my blog, I got my permanent Ileostomy in 2008, when my Crohn’s Disease wouldn’t respond to medication. She wanted to feature one of my articles about living with an Ileostomy on her new website. This is awesome for so many reasons: first of all, it’s always super flattering when awesome people in our community, like Christine, find my posts helpful and share-worthy. Second of all, I was super excited to learn about her website. I spent a lot of time reading and checking it out. There are so many great resources available! Advice, news, and helpful articles abound. You definitely want to make sure you head on over and check it out. If you know of someone who can benefit from it, be sure to pass it along.
Ostomy Connection Is Helping Support Ostomates
When I was first diagnosed, I didn’t know anyone else who was suffering with the same type symptoms as I was. I had Crohn’s Disease for 6 years before I met someone else who had the same diagnosis. I can’t even begin to describe the sense of community I gained when I was able to talk to people who could relate to what I was feeling! That’s why I’m always honored to be a part of other blogs and websites with similar goals. Raising awareness is what it’s all about, and I’m grateful to be a part of it. Ostomy Connection is another great resource in this helpful community. Please help us spread the word!
Oh, and while you’re there – make sure you stop by my feature article and drop a comment! I always love hearing from our community! Let’s start the conversation. :o)
