After years of misdiagnosis, finally diagnosed with UC in 2011.
Severe from the start, I was on Remicade, Humira, Cyclobenzaprine, Delzicol, more
narcotics than should be legal, and more colonoscopies, blood tests, hospitalizations, and
prednisone than I want to recall.
Sept 12, 2016 (near death) was my end ileostomy with rectal stump.
Three weeks into my new life and - aside from surgical healing and the cramping with
discharge - I am happier and healthier than I've been in more than a decade!

My stoma's name is Stannis Baratheon, First of His Name.

Perpetually single and have no inducements to alter that status.
Lost the urge to couple many moons ago... but I'm a solid friend.

Joined up to be part of the conversation, to learn, and lend support as well as receive it.
