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 preschooler 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, Rachel from Rocking2Stomas and Steve aka “#” Bag Daddy every Thursday 8 pm GMT you can find the link to our YouTube channel by searching “The IBD and Ostomy Support Show” in YouTube. I am a proud supporter of The Purple Wings Charity which supports those with stoma’s from having Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

Work with me! I have done both collaborations and sponsored work and I am happy to talk about how we can work together please email – stephiesimpson@colitistoostomy.com

One thought on “About The Punk Rock Ostomate

  1. Hi.
    Please allow me to introduce myself to you. My name is Rob Fearn and I have had a stoma since my emergency operation back in 2013.
    I attend my local stoma support group on a monthly basis and have listened to peoples difficulties and frustrations. I do not work for a large stoma product supply company (I actually sell floor coverings for a living)
    I have however spent a lot of time and money over the last few months designing a product which I hope would help most ostomates on a daily basis.
    My product is called Stoma Caddy. It’s a silicone storage unit which clings to any smooth surface (bathroom mirror, ceramic tiles, marble etc) and holds most of the products that you will need to change your stoma appliance.
    I really believe that it could be of interest to all the members of your group but as mentioned before I do not work for a large company so I do not have the unlimited marketing budgets that they have.
    I am struggling to find a route to market and would really appreciate any help that you and your members could provide.
    The best recommendation is always word of mouth.
    I would be delighted if you could mention my product at your next meeting and as a thankyou I have set up a discount code ‘SUPPORT’ which will give your members 10% discount at the checkout.
    If you need a Stoma Caddy to show people at your meeting please email me back and I will happily set up a one off discount to thank you for your support.
    Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you have any feedback on the product or the website.

    The website is http://www.stomacaddy.com

    Thank you for taking the time to read my email and I would appreciate any support that you can provide.

    Thanks again
