Hi, im newly single for the 1st time in my adult life after the end of a 22 year relationship & dont really know where to turn. i have two grown up daughters(17 & 19) that have lives of their own, so spend a lot of time twiddling my thumbs. i love travelling to new places & learning about the different cultures. i love to read, im a huge fan of Anne Rice & Charlaine Harris both of whom write my favourite kind of fiction, gothic vampire romance. ive been mad for all things gothic, vampires & witches especially for as long as i can remember. although i do not practice any religion i do believe that paganism is the only belief that makes any sense at all, my biggest hate is door preachers if i wanted to join your church i would come there so get the hell of my doorstep.
I've had crohn's for 7 years & an ileostomy for 5 years, most days i plod along at an even pace but some days seem so bleak & i struggle to keep myself together. i really believe my health ended my relationship as it changed me, i was once the life & soul loving the limelight but since the ostomy ive held back & like to keep within what i call my safe zone, surrounded by only those that know me. i really hate feeling this way & would love to be that free spirited girl again & thats where you come in. id like to chat with people that share my feelings & can maybe give me some guidance or words of encouragement that life can get better. im happy to chat with both males & females that have similar interests as me. i really detest liars & cheats so if you are either then i suggest you skip past me. i hope i haven't come across too messed up, i would just rather put the real me out there so no one wastes their time.
