Hiya! This is my 3 rd ostomy. I have Lupus and lots of GI issues. I am recently divorced and have a teenaged son. Life is good. I am from Quebec, raised in the Bshamas and just moved from the Bay Area to Florida . I have absolutely never met anyone else with an ostomy. I feel as though I was left on a desert island. My ex husband was a surgeon so I knew what to expect medically but not emotionally. Mine is an iliostomy and this time around it’s over active and I am constantly going in for dehydration. It doesn’t stop me from living my life though! I travel a lot. I have lots of pets that are from rescues. I have found great rescources from my ostomy nurse. Also these young girls suffering from Crohns etc... are on you tube and are a great inspiration! They really figured it all out from what to say to people, to what clothes to wear. I can’t imagine how hard it must have been for them to be effected at such a young age . They have an amazing attitude and have helped me do much! Anyway I want to date, make friends and enjoy life. That’s about all ... l’aissez les bon temp roullez! Like they say in Nee Orleans!!
