Had my ostomy surgery in 2006. It almost killed me. When I woke up and found out what they had done, I wanted to kill myself. (not really, but almost). I was devastated then - not so much anymore. I am really interested in talking to other ostomates - most of them seem to have great stories to tell and great advice to share AND...they seem to have their priorities all figured out. I would be glad to share what I have learned if someone is interested.
I am retired and would like to establish relationships with other Ostomates. Love to watch football (I have been a Cowboy fan FOREVER), read books on my Kindle, knit and raise African Violets. I also enjoy playing with my 3 grandsons and shopping with my grandaughter.
