Feeling Ostomistic
Thursday, January 09 2014

When you are adjusting to your new stoma it is often quite overwhelming when you do your first few bag changes. 

I have found over time that the best way to making bag changes easier and less overwhelming is to be organised.

For the first few months I was using a little side coffee table that I had in my bathroom and would have my supplies stacked underneath it.
I knew this wasn't the best solution I needed so I searched for a cabinet that had shelving and was also more discreet (especially for when guests come over and use the bathroom).

I was pretty lucky to find a cupboard on a local selling site for only $15!! A complete bargain right! This was the most perfect find as it fits perfectly in the space between where I sit to do my bag changes and the shower. I have it set up so that when I am seated I can easily lean into the cupboard and grab the supplies I needed.

I also still use the little side table and have it beside where I do my bag changes so that I can have easy access to my supplies!
