It doesn’t affect your sex life unless you allow it to.

I'll not give up though.......although last weekend I felt so down and lost all my confidence.

I keep believing that you have to remain positive and that right person will come along.

Why do I feel after telling them I am not good enough, begin to feel paranoid that they dont really like and iv put them off. xxx Hi there and my sympathies with your recent dates!

I cant shake the feeling and end up calling it a day. I know the feeling, although I've only had one brief encounter since becoming an ostomate.

I found that very hard as I cant really come to terms with it.
