Over 9 Months Now.

18 May

Hello again guys & girls,

Just doing another update as it’s been a while.

I have been quite busy, working, starting to get things sorted for University in September and starting running for the Race For Life I am doing at the end of July. Things have been really great with Stacey, and of course, it is still taking some adjusting to. I am so proud with how far I have come and what I have achieved already.

I currently work with 3-5 year old children, on a cover basis and some lunchtimes. I adore it. Without Stacey I wouldn’t be here, let alone have the energy to do it. It can be very challenging at times and I have been taking on more responsibility in my job, it has been worth it. I really enjoy it when I work even though it tires me out.

I have been having a few more nights out, which have really tired me out too but its great to be able to go out and socialise. I have had a few problems with acid when I have been drinking, only a little bit, or when I’m nervous. I need to start taking my anti-acid tablets again so I don’t feel as sick. I’ve noticed the problem isn’t as bad if I have eaten a fair bit before I go out.

I’m not sure if I might be anaemic at the moment, I am very tired and keep feeling dizzy and faint and I will be sure to go to the Doctors. I have also been experiencing a bit of pain in the very low abdominal area, which would be adhesions I have been told. If it carries on I will seek more advice but fingers crossed at the moment it isn’t that regular.

I still have my down days, where having a stoma affects my self confidence big style, but I have always felt a shy person in myself, although I come across as very confident in a lot of situations. Then I just remind myself of what I am now and what I can do thanks to Stacey Stoma. I keep reminding myself that she saved my life and to look at it on the positive side and not look at it in too much of a negative light, because it isn’t negative. I don’t think I should beat myself up over having my down days, it is perfectly natural for me to and I just try and take the rough with the smooth.

I have been to a lot of gigs with my Mum recently, one of the plus sides of having Stacey! I adore my Mum to bits, she is my rock and I love her millions. We have such a laugh together. This past week we went to see Pigeon Detectives and Lawson. Lawson are amazing, and I met them another two times! 🙂 They are such lovely lads and are bringing out their first single soon, I cannot wait! 🙂

I hope everyone is well and enjoyed reading this post 🙂

Lots of love & best wishes from Amy & Stacey Stoma.

Remember: OSTOMISM not pessimism (my new motto I made up :p)
