Hi, I am 45 and have been married 26 years. I've had an ileostomy since June 2006. Since the surgery, the man I love with all my heart is no longer interested in me. My story is so long and tiresome. I have had 8 abdominal surgeries with the last one being the ileostomy. I am a little more than depressed but do not have anyone to go to for support. I've been crying for about 3 hours now which is not anything new by any means. When looking through the items to be checked all I want to check is Husband, but I need this to end. I need closure and he will not give it to me. I need friends desperately but live in the middle of no man's land. I am looking for freindship and help with all of these things that have landed me in a loveless dead end. I am interested in making freinds with males or females. I am hoping to go to North Carolinia as soon as possible. I have a lot of family there. If anyone lives in North Carolina I would love to hear from you.
