I'm currently not a gold member so I can not respond to any e-mails but I will upgrade if anyone e-mails me.
Hope to hear from you soon.

I was diagnosed colorectal cancer in 2008 & had three surgeries & the end result was I have a permanent colostomy & grateful for life but just still having a hard time adjusting to the lifestyle. My wife left me because I now have a permanent colostomy which I think is sad after 13 yrs of marriage things were great between us till I got really sick & then was told my colostomy would be permanent then she changed up on me & she told me to my face that she couldn't & wouldn't live with a person with a colostomy but I'm still very grateful for the second chance to live my life to the fullest.
I haven't been intimate since 2008 & three surgeries ago & I feel like my love life is over with now. Tried dating but once I was told whom ever I was dating that I have a permanent colostomy they ran from me with the quickness! I just wish I could find true love again & not be judged by my condition but for me as a person who has a lot of love to offer! Sometimes I just get this feeling over me that my love life is no longer do to my condition!
You can friend me peteshipmanjr on facebook I would love to hear from only serious females if you have to same condition as me that is all the better! Please I would like a picture that is a must!
I wish that a nice lady would come my way & give me a reason to update my membership here on meet an ostomate please only USA I say this because a long distant relationship for me now will only make me feel worse then I do already not being able to go out on a physical date with a nice lady.
