I had illeostomy surgery after being ill with Ulcerative colitis for many years.
I was married for 18 yrs have been divorced for 7 yrs.
I have dated some but, then i wonder if they just felt sorry for me... or had feelings that they couldn't tell me because they didn't want to hurt me... I am ok with my surgery now... I am well... and don't have to worry about the unexpected... (you all know what I mean) I say it again you have to love yourself before you can expect someone else to love you!! :)

After 5 yrs of being divorced, I met the most awesome man in my life. Just a note to all of you out there.... looking for someone to spend the rest of your life with/ with a colostomy don't give up. Keep your Faith and remember you are a REAL person. We are alive. We are different, and that is ok. It is what it is. You have to love yourself before someone else can love you. Pray for God to send the person that you need in your life and that you will not over look them when He sends them.
It's been 7 yrs since my surgery and everything is OK
