- A Bigger Life (0)
Do you have a Stoma, or are you about to have one? – are you inquisitive what a stoma is, or know someone who has one?
We are a dedicated close-knit community from across the world who shares this common subject. A stoma is nothing to be ashamed about and certainly nothing to be embarrassed about.
Everyone needs help or advice at some stage in their lives, and this very site is where you will find the best of what is on offer. Read how actual Ostomists have solved their problems, have shared their experiences, and read their advice on difficult situations.
Being part of our community means we are available for advice, help, or maybe just a friendly email or two. Joining is free, and your details are never passed on without your permission.
See you inside! – come visit www.abiggerlife.com

- NHS Drug Tarrif (0)
Here in the UK we have a National Health system whereby we pay a fixed rate for medical drugs and supplies. Sometimes this works to your advantage with costs.
As an example, the contribution you pay may be £8 per item, but the actual cost would be £30. However, I (and many others) are "medically exempt" meaning we do not pay for our prescriptions at all.
The NHS drug tarrif shows you the real cost of each item. Open the page, and click on the enter button.

- Singles With Stomas (0)
Singles With Stomas is the brainchild of the charismatic and dynamic Sandra Shepherd Smith. She wanted to form a group where single people with stomas could join, chat, make friends and eventually move onto a loving relationship. She herself recognised that being single and having a stoma, she would feel more at ease when with a similar person. She researched singles sites and found that they charge a fortune when a simple Facebook page was all that was needed. So Singles With Stomas was formed.
To quote Sandra “To see peoples confidence grow when they join is priceless and wonderful"
