Slap Shot

I'm from Northern Virginia and had grown up there, also spending 4 years in Boston for School. I had been living in the Minneapolis - St. Paul, MN area since 2010 to July of 2014. After my divorce, I moved back to the region but wanted to live really close to the beach in Easton, MD. I work next to Dullas Airport now, so I moved to be closer to work.
I got my Colectomy in 2009 and that was the 10th operation due to Crohn's Disease. So, the first thing I did once I recovered, I joined a adult hockey league in Minnesota and had the greatest time! I didn't even notice the Ostomy when playing at all either! :) Some of the stuff I love doing and more then ever now. Going to small venue rock concerts, my favorite music is, still 90's alternative rock, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, L-7, Mission of Burma, Joy Division and Sonic Youth etc etc :) I love music and am trying to learn how to play my Fender electronic guitar :) I love NASCAR also, and especially hockey. I have always kept a really good sense of humor about my Ostomy and Crohn's Disease and would love to be able to give that same comfort, support and humor to a woman. It's no secret that having a Ostomy can often be lonely, it really does make you mentally tougher though just in general as so many know. Meeting a women to have in my life would be everything, especially at this stage of my life. Now that I'm very much established again 😊
