Talking ostomies and self esteem – Pelican Healthcare

I was invited to the Pelican Healthcare Life Your Life roadshow in Cardiff to talk about living with an ileostomy and self esteem.  It was a great day, there was a ton of information stalls and products as well as dietary advice, a reflexologist, the Get Your Belly Out team and lots more.  The super friendly team at Pelican Healthcare were on site to welcome the ostomates, family and friends and to chat and guide them through the day.

Pelican Healthcare Live Your Life Roadshow

Do you live near Cardiff and have an ostomy? Pelican Healthcare are holding their Live Your Life Roadshow on Saturday 24th January at Miskin Manor and I will be there, giving a talk about body image, self esteem and my time with an ostomy.

The Pelican team will also be there, along with surgeons, doctors, nurses, Bowel Cancer UK and Thrive Magazine.  There will be talks, Q&A’s, craft stalls and a ton of information and support.  The Roadshow runs from 10am till 3pm and there are free buses running from Royal Glamorgan, Prince Charles and Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda hospitals throughout the day.

I have done talks up and down the UK about living with Ulcerative Colitis and my journey through illness, medications, surgeries and recovery.  I do this because I believe in talking openly about these issues to help others on their own journey.  I love writing for both my blog and also for other websites and magazines, but I really love getting out and talking with members of the public.

So if you are about on the 24th, please come and listen to my talk but I will also be about all day so come say hello and tell me your IBD story.  I know that it can be intimidating to go along to support and information days, it can feel like it isn’t for someone like you, or it can be difficult to go on your own.  But know that it will be a friendly, open and welcoming day and there will be plenty of friendly faces.

It is my first time in Wales and I can’t wait! Look out for me and if you are feeling a bit nervous, come hang out with me and we can talk poo!

Hope to see some of you real soon, please share with anyone you think would benefit from the roadshow.

Till then you can follow me on Twitter, like me on Facebook or check out my photos on Instagram.
