About The Punk Rock Ostomate

I’m a newly ostomated (is that even a word?) punk rock mum and wife. I’m lewd, crewd, tattooed and totally prepared to take the taboo out of poo!

Please follow me on my journey back to health from the clutches of the dreaded Ulcerative Colitis, since receiving my ileostomy! I want to raise awareness that with an ostomy you can get pregnant, you can feel and be sexy, you can eat vegetarian or vegan foods and that you can live a normal life with an ostomy.


I am a lover of anything Sherlock although I just love crime dramas think Castle, Criminal Minds, The Closer, New Tricks etc. Punk Rock, Pop Punk, Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Horrorbilly, Nu-metal, Hair Metal, Grunge and industrial with a healthy dose of brit pop mixed in is usually blaring through my speakers. Music helps me through my bad days no matter the reason.Punk Rock Ostomate - Colitis To Ostomy

I’ve got an amazing husband called Steven aka 00Steve, a sneaky cheeky tinker of a toddler called Lyra-Beth also known as Ra-Ra and our newest addition since having my ileostomy, Jacob also currently known as Baby Button. We live in the beautiful tourist village of Great Ayton in God’s own county North Yorkshire.

I’m pretty excited that each and every one of my readers has enabled me to become a blogger for Comfizz and a resident blogger for Securicare in 2017. I also co-host The IBD and Ostomy Support Show with Louise from CrohnsFighting, Natalie from The Spoonie Mummy and Rachel from Rocking2Stomas every Thursday 8pm GMT you can find the link to our YouTube channel via the icon on the sidebar. I am a proud supporter of The Purple Wings Charity which supports those with stomas from having Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
