hi guys. I joined a while ago but this site confuses me a bit. I'm not sure this is the right thread but I figured I'd introduce myself. Is that okay? I have a colostomy that's about 6 months old. I did not accept this at all. I Am starting to accept it now but I have my moments.
The reason why I joined here is because I'm looking for people to help me. I don't have any friends here in Minnesota. Lived here for 3 years and it's damn near impossible to break through the groups. Anyway, I need friends. I need someone I can call up crying. Someone who will understand but not baby me. Someone who knows what's happening and why. I have not one person I can do this with. My family lives on the west coast and I don't really talk to them about all this. To have somebody hold me for comfort is a distant dream. I just want friends. I want to be a friend.
So how does this work? Do I put an ad out?
