Is an Ostomy right for you?

I have an ostomy, and I hate it. I will never get used to it. I resent it and I hate that it controls my life. I hate that I am constantly aware of it and that I worry about it every second, minute and hour of the day. I have read some stories on this website and an ostomy seems to have been their saving grace but not for me. If I knew then what I know now I would have never had this done.
So many regrets...
