I'm trying to find forums for people that have to live with feeding tube. I love all of you here but I just want to talk to some one that like has to live with it. I think it'll be helpful. The whole time I've had this tube I kept telling myself that it's only temporary....and now that in just a few days....it might be how I have to live. There's still a chance I can eat again...but getting a j tube seems more serious...I'm so excited for it..but at the same time I have so much anxiety. I wish I would have known if have a feeding tube the last time I was able to eat with no problem. I would have gotten chipotle and Mac and cheese and just all my favorite food lol. But anyways. I keep trying to find a place I can talk about just the tube and stuff. If any of you know of like a forum or a Facebook group or anything like that if really appreciate it if you could help me out.

Blazedkitty, I'll scope it out for you and let you know if I find anything. I think it would be great for you to be able to hook up with folks online who live with feeding tubes. Just don't leave us behind because we all love you!! 💕🙏🏻🌻😊

Awesome!! Giant {{{{Hugs}}}}💕❤️

Giantttt hugs back. So I'm going to have purple hair in a few weeks!!!

It's understandable to need others to talk to who've been where you are. I hope AlwayZ can help you find online support. Also check with your local hospital or home care systems, for support groups and education access. I'll be praying for you, and I'm still going to pray that some day you will be able to eat your favorite foods again! (((Hugs))) 🙂💕🙏🌼

Thanks so much flappy. I never even thought about checking with my home care! Lol. I vaguelly remember bringing it up when I first got the NG tube and I decided I didn't need it because I didn't want to accept it yet. But I think it will help me out a lot.

Jun 16, 2016 11:52 AM

I'm so excited I've had probably every color possible but only had a bit of purple when I had my rainbow hair so I'm excited to just purple

Jun 16, 2016 11:57 AM

Have you looked on Facebook, I know several teens from various groups have talked about a teens with feeding tube/g/j tube page. Yay to finally getting the old tube out!

Jun 17, 2016 10:44 AM

Yes I found a group and like this one everyone is so inviniting and have been so helpful. The group is litterally called "teens with feeding tubes" haha it's perfect.
