I love all manner of arts and crafts as i did a degree in fashion design. I like going out socialising with my friends whether it's to my local bar or our favourite rock club. I enjoy all kinds of music but i'm more of a rock chick at heart. I also love going to cinema, even though i love my chick flicks I must confess I'm a bit of a sci-fi/fantasy addict, i blame my brother and his friends.
I would just like to meet a friend, who i can to talk to about our stomas. I have a urostomy and have had 'Percy' for about ten years now. I did have a colostomy when i was a baby which was due to a complication at birth, it was reversed after i had an operation at the tender age of 1.
I was diagnosed with depression due to my stoma in 2006. I never opened up my heart about the feelings i had about 'percy' and the impact of my urostomy, for such i long time. I dismissed my own feelings, believing i was fine. It wasn't until my father died that all my negative thoughts came flooding out and got the help i needed.
I'm still suffering a little bit with low self esteem but even though i have bad days, i'm starting to have more good ones.
Unfortunately, i'm not a full member yet so i can reply to messages but i can't send them first.
