I have had my ileostomy for 32 years now, so I feel that I have encountered and dealt with any inconveniences or problems associated with it. I have never let it affect my life or my lifestyle; just happy to be alive. I am an avid fisherman (saltwater) and love to spend a lot of time during the summer at the shore. To me there is nothing more serene than watching a pod of dolphins swimming up the coast line in front of you at the start of a new day.I am an avid reader and have a keen interest in Tudor history. I never question a person's sexual preference. That is between them and whomever. I accept people for what thay are and I believe I can always learn something from the people I meet.

Life is a series of peaks and valleys. It is said that to appreciate the ecstasy of the peak you must be subjected to the low of the valley. I love good conversation with anyone and enjoy a good sense of humor. I despise liars.I enjoy reading, theater and music. I spend a lot of time outdoors hiking etc. I have done a good deal of traveling.
