Recently separated female looking to start my life over. I am new to the ostimate world and just found out my husband was cheating because he couldn't accept all of the changes with my body, I guess in sickness and in health didn't apply to my vows.

I was diagnosed with cancer 5 years ago and all of the radiation cooked my insides and caused serious damage. No one understands what it is like to go out and constantly worry about leaks and no one else I know knows what it is like to try and get the mood started and the entire time be worried about how much the bag is turning the other person off. I consider myself fun and adventurous and that is hard when you are worried about bag leaks. I'm just looking for people that get that and maybe some new friends that can help me figure out ways to get past that.

I'm usually fun, silly and outgoing. When I was diagnosed with cancer the first time I was given 5 months to live and it's now been over 5 years and unless you saw me with my clothes off you'd never know I have a bag or cancer. I'm doing fine and just enjoy taking life one day at a time. I want to meet new people that can relate to my situation and laugh about it.
