I ended up with an ileostomy after medical negligence in Sept 2018, was on life support for a month. I had sepsis, peritonitis and necrotic faciitis with a further 5 months in hospital. My partner of 18 years dumped me when I came home and I then lost my job. I am unable to work due to complications and find the life that I once knew to be gone. I have tried dating but the minute I tell them of my troubles I see a look of pity crossed with panic. I want to be with someone who can love me for what I am, someone to hug me and not think I am contagious. I would love to travel again, wish list is Northern Lights, see the swimming pigs in the Bahamas, Jamaica and many more.
