I live in Fort Lauderdale Florida. Ever since I was 12 I had a dream of living in Fort Lauderdale and have a pool. That dream is fulfilled, only one dream left to realize...
After 25 years of marriage to a woman, who I adored but could not love the way she needed, I moved away from Iowa to start a whole new life. She gave me many fantastic kids and they gave me beautiful grand kids. My life has always felt complete but now I am living the truth and my life on my own. I came out April 1, 2010. It's been very tough and rewarding.
Random facts about Eddie:

Clam diver, Behavior Therapist, Massage Therapist, restaurant manager/owner, Comic book store manager, Professional Clown, In Home Supervisor, Big Brother, Printer, Designer. etc.
I don't like Mexican food or Pasta, not crazy about sandwiches. LOVE Steak!. Born in Minnesota, raised in Iowa most of my life. I see lines everywhere. Grew up atheist, converted to Christian when 17. Bastard child. My fathers was Spiderman and Superman (ask me about that), I was born with three nipples, like Marky Mark and Carrie Underwood. I am brood. I snore loudly even after losing 135 pounds. I was arrested for robbing a bank on my wedding night (I obviously did not do). I am face blind (prosopamnesia) and it has gotten worse in the sun down here (32% to 13%)
I am an eight with a nine wing. anyone else around here into the enneagram?
I currently have realized that I am on a quest to love myself. Not in a narcissistic way, but to fully accept and love oneself gives one the power to fully love and adore another. I was taught that lesson by a very dear man. But I still don't know how to do it.

I never knew until that moment how bad it could be to lose something you never really had. This hurts.
