My name is Tammy and I live in Florida. I am bi-polar and while I still have mood swings, I am doing better with my seraquel and cymbaulta. When I was younger I tended to be more manic but as I got older I now tend to be on the other end of the scale. I found out I had ulcerative colitis when I was 19 and had surgery in 1995 to get a total illeostomy. Was not supposed to be permanent but they found cancer cells in the rectum and closed me up in the back. I am divorced with no children(unable to have). My life has been a rollercoaster or ups and downs, but I have a great family and 2 wonder friends I've had since highschool. I live with my boyfriend Mike and we have 3 dogs (2 chiuauas and one chiweeni). With lots of love and support I make it through each day, some being more difficult than others. I have a 14 yr old neice and twin 3 yr old nephews and my sister has another on the way. My work now is to babysit for the kids since both of their parent work. Yes, I get paid but it is such a blessing to be there and to help them grow-up. This sister is a nurse and my other sister just became a lawyer. I am something of a disappointment as I was supposed to be a doctor but there you are, lord had other plans. Kim is my best buddy and her daughter is my godchild. Mike and I are working on fixing up the house. He is medically retired and we take care of each other. He is great and I really love him. I enjoy gardening, reading, cooking, talking a lot. (a short conversation with my friends is usually about
). I am happy right now and hope to stay that way for a while. Now you know a little or a lot about
me depending on how you look at it. Nice to meet you all and I look forward to hearing from ya'll. By the way sometimes spellin stinks.
