Feeling Ostomistic
Sunday, October 26 2014

Last week I found out that Feeling Ostomistic had been chosen as a finalist in the 2014 BUPA blog awards under the social good section.

I have had a lot of people ask IF I won what would I plan to use the money for, or more what would I do with it.

I have plans to further my studies (currently studying a Diploma in Community Services) but I want to go on to study a Diploma in Counselling.

I want to further the support my blog offers to include niche counselling of young people living with an Ostomy or associated health issues.

I know first hand how there can be days where living with a stoma can be quite overwhelming but more so with the other health issues that goes with it.

I want to offer counselling from a supportive place that when I say "I understand", I really mean that I understand!

There is nothing more frustrating then trying to speak to a counsellor and get support and when you're talking to them they just have a look on their faces like they have no idea how it feels or how you feel as they haven't had that experience.

And that is where I want to be the point of difference!

I want you to feel supported, understood but I want you to feel empowered that none of this defines who you are.

But importantly I don't want you to feel alone!

So winning this award would mean a lot of support and awareness to those who need it most.

Please help me make this vision a reality and VOTE for Feeling Ostomistic in the SOCIAL GOOD section today!

Everyone who votes goes in the draw to win an iPad Mini too! All you have to do is enter your email, that is it!

Voting ends 7/11/14 and awards night is 14/11/14, I will keep you in the loop! 

Until then...

Ostomistically Yours,
Talya
