When You Bully Someone With A With A Stoma

When You Bully Someone With A With A Stoma

Hi friends, my name is Sarah and I struggle more than most people because of a condition I have called Spina Bifida. The media has wrongly portrayed the disabled community for many years which makes disabled people face all kinds of discrimination. My hope is to help you better understand what it means to be disabled and what it is not.

    I’m so sorry you’ve experienced bullying for different things, including your stoma. “I have had friends mock my disability and some would even go so low as to mock the way that I walk which by the way I walk have zero control over!” – One of the things bullies said about me in high school was that I bobbed up and down when I walked. I have no idea, it’s just the way I walk, I can’t help it. They were vicious, horrible individuals and I was far too socially-anxious back then. Now, it’s a different story. I’m still hurt by insults of course, but I can stand up for myself a little better and bullying is something I am vehemently passionate about to stomp it out. It’s not okay, at all.

    There are things we can do to protect ourselves and a feelings a little more, like you say with not taking it personally. Bullying always says more about that person doing it than the receiver. When I’ve heard people with chronic illnesses say others have mocked them in some way I can’t help but feel those individuals doing the mocking are pathetic and wouldn’t last a minute in the shoes of someone with a chronic illness/disability. There’s also a lot of stigma and lack of social awareness where stomas are concerned, so every little helps at moving things forward in a more positive ways, such as posts like yours. Fab article!

    If anyone bullies me about my stoma I’ll tell them they can kiss my second arse, ’cause me & my Gucci bag don’t care for bullies!

      I used to let bullies bother me but now I don’t take it personally because it takes a special kind of person to make an impact but zero talent to bring them down and insult them but anyone can do it. In some ways, I feel sorry for people that feel like the only way to get attention is to insult others when there are so many other positive ways to get people to notice you. I used to be that quiet person that just tried to avoid getting bullied but now I also have no tolerance for them and will stand up for anyone I see getting bullied because no one should have to put up with that!
