6 years ago I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. 2012 it came back and I ended up having major surgery and that's when I got a colostomy and urostomy. August 2013, it came back for the 3rd time. Doing chemo, but almost done with that. So, I've had my ups and downs in life. But, it's all going to work out.

I saw this site and decided to see what happens.

I am a single mother with 3 teenagers. My oldest daughter is in ministry school, my son and youngest daughter are in a christian church youth band. All 3 were home-schooled. Only my youngest daughter is in and this is her last year. My how time flies.
I like to laugh and be funny. Laughter is the best medicine, you know. I try to be as honest as I can. And with that, I am overweight. Seems like the only time I lose some weight is after I do chemo. But, I am almost done with that, so... I'll have to use this thing called self-control.
Friendship isn't a bad thing to have. Around where I live, I haven't found anyone in or close to my situation with ostomies. I met someone who's step dad had a colostomy, but he died a while back. That's the closest I've been at meeting and talking to someone who can understand how I feel. No support groups near me. Most help I've found is on YouTube.
So, that's it. Don't want to write a book about me. But, I'm here to see what happens or not happens. Doesn't hurt to put myself out there and see where this road takes me.
