Hello all,

I'm kinda new to this forum.  I have a colostomy due to former cancer.  

Like all of us, I've been through a lot.  But I am so tired of not just living again.  

I'll admit, what makes me more active here is the idea of meeting someone.  But that's not a priority in my life. 

I have lots to learn and have lots I can share.  Nice to "meet" you all.

Thank you.  Yes, same here.  I had a "temporary" ileostomy waiting for a reversal.  But that didn't work out.  Ive had the colostomy since March this year.  It is easier than the ileo I must say.

Hello Ophelia and welcome to MAO.  I hope you do meet someone, either on here or elsewhere. I do like your attitude to your circumstances and I'm sure others will appreciate that too. 

Best wishes

Hello Ophelia,

Welcome. It's nice to meet you. I hope you find what your searching for. It's always great to learn new things. One is never to old or young to learn. Looking forward to reading what you can share with us. There are many threads of information here. I agree with MMSH, some have more difficult times than others so I don't take the good thing lightly. I try to greet everyday with a smile and help if I can.
