About
Hiya. AJ is my name and pseudo-obstruction is my game (though I personally prefer Dragon Age: Inquisition). I'm a newly inaugurated triple threat: gastrostomy, jejunostomy, and ileostomy. I had my Big Deal surgery in August 2017 but I've had a g-tube for nearly a decade now. I'm finally starting to feel better and I'm hoping to actually talk to human beings (socializing: a radical idea, am I right?). Mostly, I'm looking to talk to anyone around my age (a venerable 25 years) as Young Ostomates are a rare thing indeed.
Update: I am an Official Permanent Ostomate as of January 2019 - so still recovering but feeling better with an end ileostomy. And new J-Tube site, long story.
I enjoy RPG videogames, I dabble on guitar/flute, reading occupies a good deal of my time, and the outdoors - especially anywhere by open water - is my favorite place I rarely get to be (off-roading isn't a priority in the manufacturing of wheelchairs - crazy, I know). I hope to get into politics (an inane proposition, no doubt, but what's a left-winged chick to do? If someone has to wade through the crap to change things, why not have it be someone with experience?).
If you've stuck with me so far, congrats! You get a virtual cookie.
While I might not be the most consistent communicator, I am trying to improve. Hit me up :)
