This group relates to women who are going through or had major surgery.
Mine is an ilieostomy (complete removal of large and part of small intestine, so I wear a ostomy bag 24/7). Or it can be women who have lost a breast or breasts or other physical altering changes in their bodies and how we can handle a new relationship.
How do we get out there and date and let men know that the sum total of our bodies is not who we are, but that we still have feelings and sometimes deeper scars than those that show the most.
I know I'm finding it hard to have a great body image no matter how much weight i lose, or what great clothes i wear, because i'm afraid that no one will accept it and that's why I haven't dated since my husband left 2 1/2 years ago.
Any advise that other's out there can afford me in this matter would be greatly appreciated. I think that if there is not a group already, that there should be one so we can share stories and advise.
