About
I had my Colostomy surgery on November 8th, 2016. I'm finally feeling comfortable in my skin again.

I'm so happy to have people to talk to about my bossy, controlling cohort." I think her name is Ethel, don't hold me to that.

I live in a suburb south of Dayton, Ohio.

I'm a retired Social Work Case Manager. Retired by health and the economy, my son and I moved back to Ohio from Oregon in 2008.

I'm on disability for other things but Cancer brought me here. I was diagnosed Oct 1, 2015 and I'm in remission after 1 year of Radiation and Chemotherapy.

Still getting used to my ostomy and trying out various barriers etc. I was surprisingly depressed and sometimes angry about this but this is much better now - I was much stronger with the cancer.

I can be quite a chatterbox especially having an ear that understands my circumstance.

Oh, my name is actually Laurie.

Thanks for visiting! 💗
