I've had my ileostomy since 1996. I've got my life back after ulcerative colitis. After complications after surgery, my choice was to have an ileostomy instead of going back for 2 more surgeries for the J-pouch.
I have created a job for myself that includes being of service to the elderly. I'm involved in a State Grant to take the elderly to their doctor's appts. and I also provide this travel privately. I also do groceries for them. And I also fill in for the Meals on Wheels routes. All through my town's Council on Aging. It's SO REWARDING. I feel good about myself. I think that helping others, surely helps oneself to be happy in their soul. :)

I am mostly wanting a female/male friendship and chat.
