been divorced for almost twenty years, was in a serious relationship the past 5 years but didn't work out so moving on. but moving on when you have a disability isn't the same as moving on totally healthy. cancer left me with an ostomy in 2011, and also in 2011 a motorcycle wreck left me with a very broken back that has slowed me down. i have always been very active and an avid outdoorsman and sportsman. motorcycles were a big part of my life growing up and enjoyed racing motocross. i also played football and baseball, and later softball. but now at 53 life has slowed me down and i have a hard time accepting that i can't do all that i used to do. however i still like to try. i enjoy fishing and luckily live on a small island in the gulf of mexico that allows me to fish on a regular basis. but i am just looking for a friend right now that might understand where i'm at in my life and maybe in a similar circumstance that we could relate with each other and help each other along throughout our lives. if you sound interested in a friendship of this type let me know and we can start from here. my children are all grown and gone to other states and its just me and my two hounds here most of the time and have a lot of free time on my hands and a lot of space in my life for a special friend. hope to hear from you soon. thanks, chris
