Hello. Remember, there are some folks who see the positive in everything. Had this been 10 years ago, I was in a darker place, fighting the demons of war. I decided to relocate to Maine, from PA, and that move saved my live. It is semi-rural here, compared to having people live on top of and beside you.
Anyways, some people will accept you just the way you are. I decided to explain to people, about my situation, as it is a part of me. Most are accepting, others run as if I have the Plague. You are attractive, both inside and out!!! DO NOT accept folks saying otherwise. I used to feed off negative folks. I now only associate with positive people. I am having to fight the VA, due to them missing my rectal cancer for over 10 years. I am advocating for myself, and I had to study the laws, regarding the VA. I refuse to take no for an answer, and I understand it is not the entire VA system. I had a non-caring doctor, and she stated it was all oin my head. I know my body, and I requested a new doctor, and that move saved my life. I take nothing for granted now.
Anyways, more about yourself....you stated you have been single for a while. That may be a good thing. I took 5 years from dating, and decided to date again. I believe I dated due to my "going after the first one". I was criticized for the way I parented, and my son decided to move back in with his mom. That devastated me. I decided at that point to become a better person. Beleive me when I mention this.....You can get through this. Remember this.....negative folks target others who are most vunerable. Misery may love company. Try to be over on the next street when misery visits.
If you would like to communicate further, please reply back. Have a great day!
