- United States
- In my own words:
I had an ileostomy at the age of 14 after suffering from UC as of the age of 2 - it runs in the family.
Me and my pouches have traveled to 40 countries, raised a son, and enjoyed the outdoors despite it all. I'm currently separated and live by myself in New York City where I work.
I enjoy nearly all kinds of music, reading, cooking, and being outside. I've also got a sense of humor - I mean really, how would we ostomates survive without a sense of humor? Like when the TSA pats you down at the airport...?
I would like to meet what we used to call a "pen pal" for conversation and sharing and maybe more.
