I'm just going to write down some thoughts and experiences that I have had....some just general about myself and some dealing with the challenges of living with an ostomy.

I have had an ostomy for 20ish yrs now. It has had it's challenges but think I have adapted quite well. Being fit and eating well certainly has made a difference for me. I am active, friendly and outgoing. I try not to let the little things bother me.

I have a wide variety of interests from parachuting to gardening, :)) I'm retired from the military and didn't let having an ostomy stop me from achieving my goals.

If you are new to this situation and need a shoulder or advise, I'd be happy to pass on what I have experienced and learned.

Have a great day. :))
