    Hannah(31) - ileostomy in 2017. Hannah just wants to be herself. All of her health challenges are only making her stronger. 
    How do you balance influencing and building ostomy awareness while avoiding the glorification of suffering?
    Why are you drawn to helping those who have struggled more than most? 
    In this social media world, it's easy to forget there's more to each of us besides our illness. Why don't you show off your bag like so many?
    Join Hannah and me as we shoot the sh!$ about getting over our negative thoughts and back our best life with an ostomy.

    Pam Wall - Ileostomy since (1989)

    Pam Wall - Ileostomy since (1989)

    Pam Wall - Ileostomy since (1989) and you'd never know it. She's a soldier! Known to most for her sailing expertise, Pam has sailed all over the world with her ostomy, and getting supplies was never an issue. "I still don't believe it!"
    Pam's father was the first person in the US with an ostomy. She recalls him going out into the ocean and taking off the appliance, to let the saltwater soothe the skin. Wow! She has 2 sisters with an ostomy as well. That's what I call a built-in support group!!
    My top 2 takeaways from Pam..."Don't waste your time in a relationship, if your partner doesn't support you in this life. It's not worth it!" So true!! 
    AND..."I get about 2 weeks of wear time from one appliance!"
    Wait, WHAT?!?! That's some wear time! Go Pam!!

    POD #34 - Ostomy noise!

    POD #34 - Ostomy noise!

    Ostomy noise!! My biggest insecurity from the start! Are ileostomies the same? "It's so loud, I hated leaving the house. Really, I'm sick and now I have this embarrassing orchestra following me everywhere." Garrett Taira and I compare and share about our ostomies and our crappy sounds.

The Ostomy Guy ,

Bear with me

Working on better intros. That’s a lot harder than I thought. And I didn’t give any background on Carl. That needs to be added sometime. It’s hard to be yourself w a mic in your face. Sound is poor too but that’s getting better as we go. Thanks for the feedback.

Carl Hall

Really enjoyed listening to Carl describe his journey. Good back and forth. Would like to have heard more about how his family was adjusting to his limited abilities. How does he keep his mind sharp? Great show looking forward to next one.
