I go by the name Nissy. I consider myself a veteran, having had a urostomy for over 25 years. I live in Harare and I enjoy watching movies and reading. I love my nieces and nephews and I love to cook.

I work as a Lab tech but I love music and I would love to make music one day as a part-time career.

My ostomy journey started when I was 5 years old. But I have never met other ostomates in person. I'm hoping to make and have life-long friends and find people who understand me in the ostomy life for the first time and maybe hopefully have a relationship with someone who at least understands what it is like to struggle with this.

Meeting people who live this life and knowing that I am not isolated in this would be amazing instead of living in the quiet shame alone. I would like to travel the world and meet new people, anyone who is an ostomate. I myself was born with a rare condition called Bladder Exstrophy and this is the reason I have a urostomy today, I feel it was a life-saving procedure and in many ways a blessing. But above all, I thank the Almighty God for the years I had- the doctors gave me 3 months to live, but God broke protocol with the gift of life that has lasted for 30 years.

Feel free to chat with me. Question, advice or just to chat, if you want to reach me, hit "like" and email me at nisvitlideon at Gmail dot com. Cheers.
