Valentine's Day is tomorrow & we wanted to re-share a blog post that Comfizz' Amy wrote for us before she worked for us. Amy had a permanent ileostomy formed in 2011 due to severe Crohn's Disease and a large, benign tumour which nearly cost her her life. She is now married and a proud dog Mum!
Self-love month: How do you practice body neutrality?
January is self-love month. Self-love means different things to different people but it's based around having a great appreciation for yourself and doing things in your life to nurture this and encourage physical, emotional and spiritual growth. I'm sure, if you're a social media user, that you frequently see social media channels flooded with self-love quotes, mantras and people telling you to "love yourself", but in reality, it often isn't that easy
What clothes can you wear with a stoma?
It is natural for endless questions to be whirring around your head and to feel apprehensive about the answers or not knowing where to go for answers. One of these questions that we know a lot of ostomates have after surgery, as they start to recover, is "what clothes can I wear with a stoma?" Many people panic that they'll have to dress in clothes that don't reflect the person they are and/or spend their lives hiding in baggy clothes.
Spring/Summer Wardrobe Inspiration
With the UK seeing our first week of high temperatures this year as I look outside the window, the sun is beaming and I’m wondering why I still have a jumper on as I wasn’t prepared for such weather!

World Ostomy Day 2021
It feels like it was only yesterday that my Instagram feed was glittered with beautiful photos of ostomates across the world, showing what World Ostomy Day means to them. For most of us who use the platform to document their journey living with an ostomy, its a daily occurrence, yet what is it about World Ostomy Day that makes it that much more special?
Men's Health Week: Living with IBD and/or a stoma
Men's Health Week has nearly come to an end (14th - 20th June). Obviously from my blog posts here with Comfizz, you read a lot about how life is for me as a female with IBD and a stoma. It's widely known that women often seem to be a lot more forthcoming in talking our their struggles & experiences in general, let alone with something so personal, so it's been really nice to hear from Neil, Andy, Lee, Sean & Keith about their experiences. Thank you so much guys for being so open & sharing your stories & tips.
