Linda: It upsets me when I hear story’s of people so young going through this I have had my iliostomy for 22 yrs and suffered for 10yrs previously before. I was prescribed high doses of prednisolone to control it and this has now resulted with osteoarthritis, once I had my stoma my life changed completely I have never let it stop me doing anything and have never covered up the fact I have a stoma (poppy) it is called, but I did for years think I was the only one with one it is good people are open about things like this wish I had more support back then good luck on your journey xx

Abbigail: I’ve followed you on multiple social media sites for years now, and I would just like to say damn you are going through so much. You’re two years older than me and way ahead in experience by far. You’re such a strong person, and I admire you so much. I know it doesn’t mean much coming from me, a 17 year old girl in the U.S., but you’re beautiful, and I’m so proud of you for not giving up on yourself. You’ve got this! x

holleesee: Thank you so much for your transparency. With transparency comes support from others struggling with similar issues. I have been sick for 3 months with UC and nothing I do helps. I go in for another colonoscopy on Monday and hope they will figure something out to help.

Gemma Dennis: Hattie I think you’re fab, my daughter is 10 months old with a colostomy, she had an ileostomy before that, we worry about how she’s going to feel about it as she gets older but with role models like you I’m not worried, please keep doing what you’re doing, you’re an inspiration xx
