kate montgomery: living a reverse bucket list, with crohn\'s disease and an ileostomy
Kate Montgomery recalled that her lowest point in more than a decade in dealing with the clone\'s disease was after a partial bowel resection. The pain was so bad that she started counting in four minutes. second blocks. Later, Montgomery, 32, had to accept the fact that a small bag was affixed to her abdomen by mouth-making -- An opening in her abdomen It\'s her intestines now. In her own words, this is the worst thing she may have ever had and it is difficult for her to leave the house. \"In the first few months, I was like a monster with a bag,\" Montgomery said . \". \"It took me a long time to overcome this problem. \"Now, in an era when women openly celebrate their bodies, shortcomings and everything, Montgomery shows her pocket-making on Instagram accounts launched this year, it is hoped that the effects associated with cloning and surgery will be normalized. Cloning is a chronic inflammatory disease in the intestines that can lead to symptoms ranging from lethargy, nausea and vomiting to weight loss, bone loss, and malnutrition. This is an autoimmune disease that the body attacks its beneficial bacteria. Those with more severe symptoms cannot be treated with medication, and they can perform colon or bowel surgery that connects to an external bag to collect waste. It is estimated that there are 5000 artificial mouth skills in New Zealand, and Montgomery, 35, has sent a message to them, especially those who have just become accustomed to mouth-making bags. Life is just beginning. Students majoring in psychology The staff of the Royal Yacht Squadron of New Zealand and the daughter of the famous yacht commentator Peter Montgomery. She was diagnosed with cloning at age 23, but when she was working on superyachts in France and the Caribbean, her condition deteriorated. She was losing weight due to homesickness, but one morning when she woke up, her joints were purple and swollen. She came home and \"injected a lot of steroids\" and received a blood transfusion. Her weight dropped to 46 kg and she was in poor health for the next few years. \"I am not very good, but I have spent a few days. I have a lot of pain in my stomach- Always painful or tired. One day I could feel a lump in my stomach. \"Some of her intestines are stuck together because of inflammation, which reached a climax in her first operation in 2010. Less than two weeks later, when she was infected, she had a temporary bowel surgery that removed some of her intestines, and her small intestine was reconnected to an opening called the mouth of the abdomen. Waste enters the bag and the bag must be emptied regularly. \"I have eight months and I go to work and cry when I get home,\" Montgomery said . \". \"I don\'t want to meet new friends. I told three friends about it. I\'m just ashamed and ashamed. The location of the bag was particularly bad so it leaked and it was a shame that I had to go home and change my clothes. It was a terrible experience. After it was removed, she spent \"a long time trying to get better\" to avoid having another bag, let alone a permanent one. She tried acupuncture, medication, diet and asked for help from a major GI scientist in Sydney. No success. 2015 doctors found a hole in her intestines that leaked liquid into her stomach, essentially poisoning her. This is a matter of life and death, and the only solution is permanent mouth-making. Montgomery was \"heartbroken\" about the prospect \". \"But I don\'t want to die, so it\'s a very direct choice for me. \"The day before the operation, she wrote a list called\" What I would do if I didn\'t die. It includes learning to surf in Hawaii, climbing the island of lonito, and learning to sail. The low point after surgery came. Count to four and stay in bed over and over again. \"I had this bag on my stomach, which was 42 kg at the time. I hate everything about my body. I feel very disappointed with this. I think my body is an independent entity, my brain, and I would say it\'s my lowest point. It\'s too bad. I cried a lot. After returning home, she returned to her health, lying in bed watching TV and drinking a cup of tea, \"relatively happy \". \"But I know it won\'t last forever. I\'m tired of shame. \"She goes to see a therapist every week and starts pushing herself out of the comfort zone to solve this opposite problem. With the improvement of her physical health and physical quality, her mental health has also been improved. She started lifting weights at the gym. Her pain disappeared, and although she had to be careful about what to eat and needed to know where the bathroom was most of the time, most of her previous symptoms of cloning had disappeared. Going forward, it can be tricky to have a baby, but Montgomery says she will go through that bridge when she talks about it. Montgomery said that although she was sad, she also realized that she was dealing with it. \"Even though I can admit how bad it all is, I guess I\'m just a writing enthusiast --off mentally. You know what? I thought it was? \"But in fact, when I heal, I think, well, I can do that. I think because it\'s also permanent, I force myself to do what I didn\'t do last time. \"A turning point is the first time in four years to put on a bikini and go swimming in the Bay of Islands with two friends, she is surrounded by her sides in a secluded place on the beach. The bag was handled very well and Montgomery was ecstatic about being in the water. She\'s no longer ashamed to admit that she can\'t do something. Sailing can be tricky if there is no toilet on board But when she began to give up the details of the discomfort, Montgomery put her shame down. \"I realized how much of my shame came from hiding and felt what I was hiding,\" she said . \". \"That shame disappears when I start talking about it and talk about it openly. There\'s so much shame in my head that doesn\'t exist outside of me. This is a great discovery, really. On New Year\'s Day, Montgomery launched the \"spirit of the Sun Club\" on Instagram \". She described herself as \"ileostomate\" and she was different in bikini photos -- An almost invisible pocket on her right side came out of the bottom of the bikini and saluted her -- Surfing and lifting shots. ( \"I wish I had put the 100 kg lift there because I had checked it,\" she said . \". ) This page is in line with Montgomery\'s sense of humor. She was the first person to joke about her illness ( \"It\'s a bad situation, sorry for the pun,\" she said with a smile). Uploading photos was another battle that Montgomery won, and Montgomery said her self-esteem was \"shattered\" by the first operation. In the hospital, surrounded by women in their 60 s or 70 s who underwent the same procedure, they told Montgomery that they felt sorry for her being so young. \"It\'s really hard when you\'re in your 20 s and 30 s because. . . You are still very clear about your image. I\'m a lot less-I\'ve had to - But it\'s really hard now. I have two very close male friends who, like me, grew up with me and he used to say to me, \'Oh, if you\'re a woman, you have to get one, that\'s even worse. \' [Whereas] His friend called him a bionic man. \"She suspects that the issue of self-esteem for men and women is not far away, and she hopes that her public discussion about bowel surgery and cloning can help any chronic patient. \"My idea is that I will only talk about things that affect me and hope it will help others. My body recovered very linearly after the surgery and gradually improved as I recovered and recovered. \"But this is a mental problem of living with the mouth-making technique, or one day --to- I have been thinking about the day show. There is always a part of my brain dedicated to where is the nearest bathroom? Or is my bag missing or is it full? \"I really don\'t have leaks or something like that, but there\'s always a small part of my brain that has to be focused on thinking about it in a way that healthy people don\'t need. \"I think people get something from it, or they see something and go, oh, I can do it in a different way, or only others get it. When I was diagnosed for the first time, even when I had surgery, I had no one. No one [ Talk openly about cloning. \"The former single third season champion Viarni Bright also publicly talked about being diagnosed with clone disease at the age of 19. She told the Herald before about the clone\'s disease \"sometimes it\'s not the easiest thing to talk about -- This can be embarrassing \". Kallia Patching, New Zealand\'s mouth-making ambassador, said Montgomery\'s story was \"absolutely\" important to share with others. More and more people are diagnosed. Most people don\'t know what mouth making is. I think it will bring shame. \"After being diagnosed with a clone\'s disease, the repair operation, after she started bleeding out of control, performed an emergency operation on 2001, aged 22. She was woken up by her pocket. \"I asked a lot of people to turn around and say I \'d rather die than have a bag. I just looked at them and went away. There\'s no way, my life is more worth living. \"On January, Montgomery participated in the purple camp event for children with inflammatory intestinal diseases. A young participant reluctantly admitted to her that he had a pocket making. Montgomery responded with an optimistic \"same\" before lifting the shirt to reveal her bag. She said there were surprises in his eyes. He said, \'What? I can\'t tell. You did all this. It\'s really cool talking to him. When she showed a group of people how to incorporate the waterproof material into her bag, he said, \"I want to have a day like you. Do it, just don\'t care. \"I think it\'s really cool to hear this. This is what I want.
