Hello. I'm a busy career woman working in the medical field and attending graduate school. Developing my career at an older age fits within my life with the ability to finish raising my family. I hope to retire in a few years and work in the volunteer sector of healthcare. I love to give back to others. This site interests me since I too have had an ostomy since age 27 and people from all over the world post on this site. Having gone through the life and death experience that led to the surgery, I have viewed life in a challenging respect since my ostomy surgery. The philosophy to live life to the fullest and be able to reach your goals has driven me in positive directions. Thus when life gives you lemons then make lemonade. Life is as sweet as you perceive it to be and I think life is sweet. Life gives us challenges and my ostomy is not always understood and accepted in a relationship and it really hasn't been toomuch of a problem. So this may be a site with individuals that understand each other. The understanding is a mutual feeling that we were given a second chance in life and we are thankful to be alive is how I perceive it. I enjoy traveling (when time permits), and occasional biking, skiing, golfing, and hiking. I've traveled to Europe a couple times. My traveling experience has involved getting to know different cultures and the people who live within the culture. I look forward to chatting with you,

I hope to meet new friends on this site. E mail chat is fine with me and I'm not adverse to meeting one day.
