I am a 48 year old female that was diagnosed with "Colonic Inertia". This I guess is very common now, But wasn't when I developed it! I have had 7 surgeries to date. My most recent was just December 2007. My illeostomy was just moved to my other side. I have had three hernias as well. I'm looking for an understanding Ostomate who just understands. People can say that they do but unless you walk in our shoes-They haven't got a clue!!!!! I want to get back to normal as soon as possible...Looking for someone who understands. I am a compassionate person who would give the shirt off of my back so to speak. I treasure my sons who are now older and moved away! I love my cat and dog, They are my companions. If you are looking for a person who can directly relate to all of the problems than an Ostomate can incurr, I would be happy to help where I can....We'll see where it goes. I am very close to my family! I am just trying to learn to live my life with my illeostomy, and all of the problems I keep having. It would be nice to have someone to talk too. I have just recently been put on Pancreatic Enzymes because I cannot digest foods that well...Thats Sucks! I used to love fruits, corn-on-the cob, salads, But I have trouble with alot of foods. I do have to drink alot of Boost to keep up my strenght these days. Since, December I continue to loose weight but have a slight buldge where my illeostomy is...How can most ostomy people really eat????
Any Suggestions....Like to starte getting out with people who are more like me.....

I want a romantic man. I am a hopeless romantic myself!
What is wrong with flowers, and the car door being opened up for me? Morals are important to me...
