I am a nurse and have worked with people who have ostomies... I have always tld them the same thing which i wholeheartedly believe: the bag is a part of you and people who genuinely love you will accept it.
Recently i met a new partner who told me he has a ileostomy. I told him it didnt matter and it didnt bother me, which to a great degree is true. however I am now worrying when we become intimate that i may not feel the same.
considering my job, i am beating myself up worrying about this. he has never shown me his ileostomy bag, we have not been intimate yet and I have no experience of this personally.... I love this guy to pieces but there is that niggling doubt in my mind and I feel like an awful person for this!
can anyone help?? I am so confused and so worried.
