It all seems impossible until it’s done.Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela said it best!  Learning how to take care of your ostomy and change your appliance can be really intimidating and overwhelming and it’s totally normal if you feel like you’re never going to learn how to do it yourself.  You will. With patience, help, more patience, and lots of practice, you will get the hang of it and it will no longer be impossible.
