An ostomy is a bag that is connected to the abdomen that allows for draimage from the intestines. In other words, this is how someone would poop. This is done because of damage to an intestine either because of trauma or from some disease process. It also may be temporarily attached to the patient or it may be permanent. You would never know someone has an ostomy unless they tell you or they take their shirt off. Would you date someone with an ostomy?

It makes me sad to see how many people would treat someone differently for having an ostomy. I had an ostomy and everything works the same way and it is not messy and it isn't disgusting. As the person not having the ostomy you are not expected to touch it or do anything with it. Have an open mind.1

If I fell in love with a girl and that was part of her body I can look past it. I think most people are worried about what others think. But what really matters is what you think and how you feel when it's just you and that other person you love. Sound like a bitch right now but it's the truth.0
