Daunting, Wit, Compassion, Educationby Eric on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 23:23
Hello there people of the J-pouch and pre-post surgery / non-surgery world. My name is Eric, and I have had 5 surgeries for Colitis. I almost died. Now I’m both a high school English teacher and a professor, and sometimes my students make me wish I had passed away (just kidding). Just now I finally read the wonderful writeup of this site, jpouch.net, over at healthline.com.
A collaborative work of clever and creative writers, J-Pouch Life takes a comprehensive look at life after colorectal surgery of any kind. Full of heart-warming to heart-wrenching stories, this blog is a welcome respite from a world in which bowel malfunctions are considered weird or rare. Click your way through this site to discover camaraderie, understanding, and a hefty dose of humor.
The writers at J-Pouch Life know that post-colorectal surgery life can be daunting, but their wit, compassion, and dedication to sharing their words of wisdom make life more bearable for the rest of us.
This review makes me proud to be part of such a greatly spirited and positively witty community! Keep it up!
