Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,336 members


Hi Folks,,,,I'm Sandi. Always was a happy uplifting person, but struggling with some depression stages now and then since my surgery almost three years ago. Still have complications and no one seems to understand just what I go thru. Thought maybe this site could help out a little from some of the forum info I have read the past couple of months.
I'm supposed to say how I spend my time.....since summer started it's emptyting the bag or changing my appliance every day. Not really being negative, just a little frustrated at times.
I deal in Antiques in a local large antique & collectables store. Love that...keeps me active.

I am basically looking for friends who can understand and possibly give me some ideas on how to make this all better for me. I am happily married to a wonderful man, who helps me all he possibly can, but he is totally lost with the problems I have with this. His worst digestive problem is getting heartburn when he eats Mexican food.
