I am a 52 year old, divorced, born and raised in southern California female, diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 2005. I had a proctocolectomy with a permanent ileostomy 3/10/10 due to pre-cancerous cells in my ascending and transverse colon. I work in an office and am still working up my strength to be able to work full time again. I have an extensive support system of friends that sympathize but none that truly understand what I am going through. I do attend an ostomy support group. I enjoy a good sense of humor and have many LOL moments while reading Just For Laughs on this site. My 12 year old granddaughter is the light of my life. I generally travel within the states a couple of times a year and hope to begin doing that again soon. I went to Australia a couple of years ago and had the time of my life.

I have had my ileostomy for one year. I have been reading on this website for a few months and have learned many things and some good tips. I am interested in being able to participate in posts and possibly chats. I am looking for people that I can talk to who understand what I am going through.
