I’m very proud to announce Ostomeme, a new project that I’ve been working on!
Not many people know what IBD is at the time of their diagnosis, and I had a lot of questions about Crohn’s Disease when I was first diagnosed, but there are some things that I wish I had known sooner.
We’ve all heard about PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), but have you heard of Posttraumatic Growth? Many of us with IBD or an ostomy have experienced this, even if we aren’t familiar with the term. It happens when a life-changing event causes a positive change in someone’s life. More specifically, it’s when something that would be considered traumatic happens in our lives, and our perspective on life changes for the better: We grow as people.
I was recording a video this afternoon for an upcoming product review, and I received a notification from Google+. Interested about why I’d be tagged in a comment from Megan, The Front Butt YouTuber, I checked out the post and subsequent video. Megan had posted an awareness video for ALS or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis; you might know it as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
