Ten years ago I foundout I had colon rectal cancer. It was had to face at first. But with the help of my family I made it through the surgers and the idea of having a colostomy. I have a two wonderfu l girls who helped me and are still helping me. My husband of 23 years at the time of my surgery was not to happy. Things changed between us. He went out and got twin beds, and at one point he moved out of the bedroom. When I asked him what the problem was he said I turn his stomach. That just thinking about it makes him sick. But I do not let it get to me. I have my children, my grandchildren, and my school children. I am happy with my life. My colostomy is part of me just like my arms and legs and if people can not take me as I am then I fell sorry for them. I am alive and I am healty and I am happy with what I have. I'm the same person I was before the cancer.
