I couldn't breathe through a turtle neck. One day I stumbled on a box of nurses masks. The kind that tie over each ear and cover the face and nose. I found that if I cut the top string in two right in the middle and cut off both ends of the bottom string and tied them to extend the top string I could stretch it around my neck and let it hang down and cover my stoma. Now that I have gotten so skinny I dont even have to cut it or tie it anymore. I just take one end and stretch it over my neck and let it hang down. Plus they can be changed every day. They are always in a tin at the hallways entering a patients room if you need to know what they look like. Specialized Drug Stores carry them. We have a place here called Walker's Drug Store that carries them. Plus you could probably order them on line under Nurses Masks. Or sumpin like that!
