250,000 Blog Views And My Blog Went Nuts!

Wow! What a week. I can’t believe everything that’s happened! In just one week I’ve been in the Daily Mail, the Metro, The Mirror, I appeared on BBC Sussex Radio, there have been articles in Brazil, Belgium, Australia, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, USA, Indonesia, Taiwan, France, Japan… the list goes on! I’m going to be writing a piece for The Huffington Post next week, alongside appearing on an Australian radio show!

Absolute craziness!

Although… doesn’t it just go to show how taboo the subject is. Many of the headlines approached the fact I’d written about still having sex, still taking pictures, still wearing bikinis… as if going to the toilet in a different way meant I’d lost all life in me!

I’m glad word spread and so many people got involved in the story though. I can’t thank everyone enough for all of the amazing support and the positive attitude the articles have received! I just want to cry with happiness! The amount of awareness for ostomy and IBD that has been raised the past couple of days is phenomenal. I couldn’t be more proud. So thank you so so much for taking the time to read about the condition, my blog and my story! I hope it will encourage others to speak out and to enjoy life a little more, without the fear and the nerves that perhaps that perhaps once imprisoned them.

I have had so so many emails which I will be replying to over the next week, so please bare with me! But thank you for confiding in me, I feel truly honoured that people have taken the time to write and have trusted me with their story. Some of the messages have made me well up quite a bit… I’ll be one big emotional mess by the time I finish reading!

Thank you all so much. I don’t feel I deserve quite as much attention as I have received, but I feel absolutely blessed that word has gotten out about my blog and even one person may be helped.

So again, thank you xxxx10982699_918516614872142_4787843721648344028_n

    I started reading your blog after seeing pictures of you with your bag on your Facebook page, because truthfully, the human curiosity in me saw something different and wanted to know more, to understand. A little while after this, in a completely unrelated situation, I lost my Mum unexpectedly and I felt like my world had fallen apart. However, strangely enough, even though what you’ve been through is so completely different, reading your blog and seeing your fighting spirit to carry on has inspired me. You made me want to keep going, to be able to live my life, and to make my Mum proud. I even went on to write some of my own stuff about how I was feeling, which really helped in the early days. So, I just want to say thank you for being so inspirational, let you know that I think you’re a really incredible girl, and tell you to carry on fighting for what you believe in because you’re damn good at it!
