I gotta say, in my 20's when i had UC, i looked ALOT worse than i look now with i do now with my bag.
I was fat from pred, pale skinned, my hair was thin, my nails were breaking.
Now i will admit, that its easier in life to be a good looking female, and you can get better sales when you work at a hardware store (tee hee) but its not the be all and end all.
And i will be the first to admit that i am horribly horribly shallow. But having a bag didnt really bother me, once i thought it through.
Age is getting me now, and too many nachos, but im still pretty enough to turn some heads, not like i could when i was 18, but hey noone looks like that when they get old!
UC for 8 years, before finally kicking its butt and having a permanent ileostomy April 17 2007!
-I have gone to find myself, if i get back before i return, keep me here-
