Better to be curious than judgemental

My brother got a new girlfriend a while back and I was concerned about her fitting in, my family is quite vulger and we cuss a lot and we're very honest about things. I had to change my supplies out because I was leaking everywhere.
She followed me in the house and said, "Can I watch you change your ostomy? I've always wanted to see one."
She's a keeper.

Hi JennaRae
Good that you have a new friend, sounds as if she will fit in with you all.
Good choice on your brother's part.
