Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,344 members


I am a retired RN due to health problems. I am a very happy go lucky kind of person and enjoy the company of my husband and family very much. But I get lonely during the day and the sickness wears on me. I spend a lot of time on facebook and on the phone and cleaning house what I can. I have a dog named gracie. I went on my first cruise for my 25th anniversary and decided that is what I like and i am ready to go again. I grew up in a small town in south Alabama and attended college in Mobile Alabama where I met my husband. My interest are all about my family and their activities. i love baseball and watching my son play college ball, I love Alabama Football, and I love having my husband grill out and all the kids be home to enjoy his feast. When I worked I was a paramedic and then I went to nursing school graduating in 1985 and worked all my life until a bad pregnancy forced me to wquit for a while then my husband went on shift work and wanted me home and I gave up my career to raise the family.

We moved to Florida in 2005 and I got sick in 2006 so I don't know anyone and i am looking for a friend to talk to that understands my illnesses and is not turned off by them or the fact that I am chronically ill. I love sports as I have a son that plays college baseball, and i have a son that has a band and is well known so I love to hear him play. My daughter is my precious heart and so thankful God blessed me with a little girl to go with my boys. Integrity, honesty, and christian values are important to me. I am happily married for 27 years and have 3 children a new daughter and also my mom. I have a English Toy Spaniel named Gracie that we adore.
