On Saturday 8th March I was invited to talk at Barnsley Town Hall as part of International Women’s Day by Experience Barnsley. My talk was about my journey of ten years of chronic illness, surgery and living with a stoma. I talked about Ulcerative Colitis and how my colectomy and ileostomy affected my life.
It was about raising awareness, trying to stop poo being taboo and relating my story to the average woman. It was about body image, self esteem, confidence and positivity and how we need to both learn how to love ourselves as women and how to pass these things onto the young women of future generations.
Have a watch and please feel free to leave me a comment telling what you think.
Thanks for watching!
