Sitting down to pee

This isn’t really an issue for women, but for a guy it might be something to listen to.

For the last several years of having UC, I was going to the bathroom often, so I would just sit down and any pee that I had stored up would come out. It wasn’t much as I was having a hard time absorbing water, but I got used to just sitting down to pee. Now that I have an ileostomy, I still sit down to pee almost always. It’s just easier that way. I can both pee and empty my bag, even if it’s not “full”. I guess it’s more “manly” to stand up, but at least I don’t get yelled at for leaving the seat up!
