I am a heathy woman after my iliostomy surgery in 1974. That surgery changed my life. My high school years were a blur. I received good grades, but my parents were there to help me all the way. I often had to call my dad from school because I had had an accident. He'd race to pick me up. I attended a small town school, where everyone knew about my problem, so I was never laughed at or made to feel ashamed. I also graduated from college and have a Master's degree. I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and one adopted son. I could share all sorts of stories about my life, but then I think we all can. I look forward to talking to others who have had ulcerative colitis and are still smiling and looking forward to the whatever the future has in store.
