Spiritual Living

Glad to be alive. It's been very lonely and frightening living with a urostomy and recurring kidney infections since I was 6 years old. God has blessed me up to now and I'm still actively & physically healthy with no recent kidney problems. Just dealing with it emotionally. Seems people treat me different (aloof) after they find out; calling me names like 'urine girl' and 'freak' behind my back (even by siblings former 'friends' and current neighbors). Obviously I don't associate with them any more. Thank God I have you all to encourage me; then I don't feel so completely alone, betrayed & abandoned. And although I may be 'the freaky urine girl' to the mainstream (no pun intended; lol), I'm here for God's purpose to keep enjoying the little things in life God gives to me daily, helping others less fortunate while ignoring put-downs about my urostomy; but use those insults to motivate me even more to stay healthy, active, social and serene ever searching for sincere, trusting relationships. Looking forward to connecting with others and making new friends on here; possibly to visit no matter where you live. So message me any time. I'm here for you and am very thankful that you're here for me!
