Join the Largest Ostomy Community


I was in a boating accident when I was a kid which resulted in scars, a colostomy and me needing to walk with a cane.

I have had my ostomy since 86 and it has never defined or interfered in my life. I have had it for so long I can't really recall what life was like without it.

I would love to meet new friends that are positive/optimistic about life. All anyone can do is make the best of the life we have been given. I feel so fortunate to have been given a second chance at life and I endeavor to be grateful and happy. If you feel the same and would like talk please feel free to send me a message, I look forward to making new friends.
