About
I was born and raised here in Milwaukee. I have been other places too but mostly here. I have also lived in Tuscon, AZ, Cincinnati, OH, and south central South Dakota. I always end up back in Wisconsin.

I got my ileostomy in October 2016 after nearly dying of sepsis and having an emergency operation for a diverticulitis that went all kinds of wrong. I consider it a miracle of God (literally) that I'm still here to talk about it. (The situation was quite bad). While I'm not going to get into a big "religious schpeel", I believe in God and Jesus and like to believe God has a plan for everyone, and that even includes in these kinds of matters, in relationships, in everything. So His will be done! I figure I was given a second chance.

I am the teddy bear geek I guess. Was never a sports nut, rather a sci-fi/fantasy/Trekkie type. I'm really never sure how to write these profiles. So feel free to ask me anything. I've recently started a new ketogenic lifestyle and have been losing some decent weight, and other things have improved for me as well, including my A1C, and other things. I'm confident I can get down to a desired weight and maintain it at this point, and hopefully avoid further complications. I'm absolutely charged and confident there's a better road ahead for me.

I am a full member, so I can write back. Looking to meet a woman of decent character.

God bless.
