I’m sure I am not the first person with a stoma to say that there are many misconceptions about stoma bags and ostomies.
Every time my stoma-versary comes around, the fact that I have my stoma for the rest of my life hits me in the face all over again. I don't think it has ever really sunk in properly. It's crazy, even though it's been 5 years already. It doesn't even seem like it's been that long, time has honestly flown.
