Ouch: Disability Talk - Stories about pooing in a bag

Hi People

Interesting article on the BBC website at the beginning of December, someone actually talking about having a stoma, phantom rectum and life with a poop bag.

There are a lot of us out there with a stoma and it would be really good if well-known people were to help make people more aware of life with a stoma. As you will see/hear from the above links life does not have to be especially restricted just because you have a stoma.

Also wanted to say what a godsend the RADAR key is proving to be, really makes a huge difference especially if you visit places with decent disabled toilets. No more huge queues when attending a premier league, straight in and sorted.
