Chaque année, des femmes sont contraintes de vivre avec une poche de stomie. Afin de changer le regard des autres vis-à-vis de cette déviation chirurgicale, plusieurs d’entre elles s’affichent fièrement avec leur poche sur Instagram !

Qui a dit qu’une poche de stomie n’était pas instagrammable ? 

Une stomie est le résultat d’une opération chirurgicale visant à traiter une maladie et à en soulager les symptômes. La poche permet l’évacuation des selles et des gaz ou des urines. Le mouvement est devenu viral suite à l’ouverture du compte Instagram @happybaglife et le lancement du hashtag #lovemybag  par Charlène, a.k.a Kangouroo girlpour motiver les internautes à s’assumer avec leur poche, sensibiliser les uns et changer le regard des autres.

Parmi l’une d’entre elles, Zoey Wright alias @zoeywrightfitness , une fit girl qui partage quotidiennement à ces 57 mille followers son évolution physique sans craindre de montrer sa poche de stomie !

⭐️ Accepting yourself for who you are and all that you are is a process. But being authentic and sharing your story is essential! There is no such thing as an insignificant story. There is no doubt in my mind that one person can absolutely make a difference! . . . “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for, we are the change that we seek » ❤ #AerieReal #GutlessandGlamorous #inmyskiniwin #GlamourWOTY #Glamour #ChronicIllness #Ostomy #OstomyAwareness #IBD #Crohns #UlcerativeColitis #Beautiful #bodypositive #RealBeauty #Joy #BlackGirlsRock #GoodSquad #Blessed #Happy #WeareRoyal #Faith #beautyunaltered

Sharing this in honor of the lil boy, Seven Bridges, who took his life at 10yrs old because his classmates bullied him about his lifesaving colostomy bag. I share my pic with the hope that others who struggle with their own body image, albeit, internal or external pressures will recognize and own their true strength! And that those without lifesaving medical devices will approach these topics with kindness and respect. I am grateful for my bag because it has helped to extend my life. photo credit: @underneath_we_are_women @amydfoto 💙💙🙏🏽💙💙#restpeacefully #SevenBridges #sevenstrong #bagsoutforseven #ostomyawareness #ostomate #colostomy #colostomyadvocate #bodypositivity #bodypositive #breakthestigma #uoaa #ostomyinspo #fightcrc #colostomybagproud #rockout #withyourbagout #scars #scarsarebeautiful #spreadawareness #noth8 #nobullying 💙

This is me. I went back and forth in my head about posting this, for fear of people; what they may say or think…but it shouldn’t be that way. People should be proud to share who they are in all their different shapes and forms. I was inspired to finally share a picture of my #stomabag after reading about the tragic story of #sevenbridges, a 10 year old boy who took his own life after being bullied because of his #colostomybag. Truth is, this #ostomy saved my life and the lives of many other #ostomates and should therefore be celebrated as such, a #lifesaver and not #stigmatised the way that it is. My #invisibleillness and #invisibledisability does not define me, but it is a part of me and should be embraced. So here I am, #bagsoutforseven, hopefully we can make a difference and change the perception. Grateful for my support who have given me the courage and confidence to be myself and show the true version of me. #ittakesguts #spoonie #ostomylife #ostomyawareness #stopbullying #ibd #crohns #uc #crohnssucks #ileostomy #crohnsfighter #crohnsawareness #comeatmebro #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #selfconfidence #selfesteem
