Hi my name is Sherri, I'm a newly widowed mother to a little boy who has saved my life after losing my husband of 28 years last February.

My little guy tells me he thinks it's time for me to find a male friend. The thought of someone seeing me with this horrendously ugly bag body sends me into a pick. I have had my first ieloscomy reversed all was going well until I began using the bathroom 25-30 times per day,being hospitalized every month for sepsis and severe malnutrition even after tpn therapy. So an emergency permanent ileoscomy was done leaving me with a whopping 7" of small and no large. Even as ugly as I felt my husband found me irrisistible but now with him gone I feel lost and alone wanting that closeness once again but fearing the bag will be my only partner for the last God willing 20-30 years..

Sorry for making my first impression a rambling one but I guess I got excited when I saw some of your posts sounded as if my life was being written about by someone else. Thank you for making me feel as though I am not some sort of bad 6th grade science project.
