Bio: I am a 40 something woman, with a love of champagne and Chanel and a lover of the gym! I had Ulcerative Colitis for many years before having emergency surgery to lose my large bowel but save my life., almost 10 years ago now. I want to give hope and inspiration to others who may be facing bowel surgery but also hope everyone else will enjoy my updates. I am just trying to navigate my way through life, with an honest and positive outlook and show that life doesn't stop just because you have a stoma. I hope you enjoy that journey with me.
