I'm a "no colon chick" who had an emergency ileostomy in Dec. 2010 due to 3 perfs in my large intestine. Had a successful reversal on Feb. 1, 2012!

Interests include art/foreign films, Jungian psychology, MBTI interpretation and administration; family, good books, good movies, good music, good friends, and living a fulfilling life....coping with life's challenges using faith, knowledge, wisdom, humor, an open mind and heart and my favorite 4 letter word....HOPE.

Beauty isn’t worth thinking about; what’s important is your mind. You don’t want a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head.” - Garrison Keillor

Looking for some genuine, erudite friends; to gather wisdom and insight; to offer encouragement and support; to share "coping" stories and ideas.
Also interested in hearing about those of you who have had or are contemplating a reversal and how the process has been for you; your thoughts, concerns, fears, etc.
Humor is welcomed, too :) Laughter is THE best medicine!
