Generally pretty quiet at first, but when common ground is found I open up more.

Not friends with any other ostomates, so just wondering who is out there that knows the real deal. My Normie friends and family are pretty cool about it, but they still don't get it...and there's always that underlying "I'm glad I'm not like THAT" sort of feeling I get from them when the subject comes up...for once I don't want to feel that.
