I've been a widow now for almost six yrs and have two grown sons. My youngest still lives at home along with our jack russell terrior Sparky. I spend alot of my time taking walks with Sparky,reading,cooking,watching movies,surfing the internet. Love going to the beach during the summer months. Vacation every summer on an island off the coast of Maine. Love it there. Was somewhat of a corporate brat growing up so moved around quite abit. I was kind of shy when I was young so moving was always quite an adjustment for me. I think that is why I have stayed in the same vacinity in my later years.

I've had my ostomy forever it seems, for 29 years now and still find myself needing answers, support, a person to listen to my problems so what better place to find that then here. I miss having my husbands support. Half the time you would have thought he had an ostomy too. It's great having a place where you can share your thoughts with others with the same issues.
