Phil Devoid

I was diagnosed with colon cancer a year ago. Since then I've been through chemo, radiation and surgery. A few weeks after I got the all clear from cancer medically, my wife announced she wants a divorce. I'm still reeling from all this. Right now I need a friend who can help me through this. The cancer they just cut out and it was gone. It's not going to be that simple with a 22 year relationship. I do not plan to live the rest my life alone but can't imagine entering the dating scene in my condition. I'm a professional Antique Picker much like the guys you see on TV but it's not as easy as they make it seem. I'm in no condition to start a relationship at this point. All I can handle right now is a good friend with compassion and support. I have two grown children will have children of their own and I have a stepdaughter with children that I am very attached to. I enjoy exploring my creative side and Like to entertain my friends and my community. I live in a small town where people are very supportive. I enjoy cooking, walking my dog, playing cards with my friends, playing board games and such with friends. I'm fairly picky about what I watch on TV and I lean somewhat to the left politically, but not radical left. I am not religious but I have a strong sense of what's right and what's wrong.
