I am British, have lived in Crete for 5 years and am now back in Dorset where I grew up.

I no longer work due to disability, but I volunteer once a week in the local charity shop and also helped to set-up and now run a cancer support group. I've been quite ill, and that - plus the medications - have changed my life and my looks considerably. There are quite a few things I can no longer do - drink alcohol, eat salads and run a marathon (ha, ha! as if I could ever do that anyway!!) - but I've re-discovered a love of all things "craft" and creative, including pottery, wicker making, glass painting, knitting, crochet, weaving, car making, etc. I go horse-riding a couple of times a week and love spending time with my children and grandchildren who live nearby. Oh, and of course, to complete the single, mid-life picture....I have 3 cats!

I'm interested in meeting other people with a stoma for chat, support, or maybe relationship - but not too sure about the last bit!! :-)
