Very outgoing, people person that loves to volunteer and help others. I love the arts, the outdoors and anything near water. I am disabled and on SSI, work is not an option. Going back to school in the fall to work on my psych degree and make a better life for my family. I grew up in NJ, have lived all over the east coast: NJ,NY,PA,NC,IL,SC,FL. In Florida for over 2yrs and planning to move to Costa Rica in the next 5yrs.

Living with Crohns disease for 8yrs now and had the ostomy for 3yrs and counting. Just had a baby and feel very left out/limited in my activities. This is quite alienating,a friend with a similar situation would be extremely helpful as I also have much support to offer.It's very embarassing to let anyone know and when I do open up, no one understands!
