Just an average guy in most all respects.....and I am fortunate to finally realize it after all these years of "Trying on various Personas", which not only became quite confusing, but it was really, really hard to keep track of just who I was any particular day.....


Love training hard in the gym. Avid about staying in shape. Love to read....love to write.....immensely enjoy cooking.....love my privacy, and to a notable degree, my solitude.....love petite, feisty women with a sharp wit, who also love working out....love dangerously powerful Thunderstorms.....the more violent, the better.....love the Ocean, and the shore....love the simple life, and simple people, devoid of affectations.....

Don't care for those who cling to pretentious ostentation....(oh, but wasn't I just like that?).....or folks who feel the need to brandish intellectual superiority...(my, that sounds uncomfortably too familiar)...I have no time for those who think their worth increases by denigrating others...(hmm...now this is hitting a bit close to home)...I don't care for one who takes, "Malignant Narcissism" as a complement....(didn't I have a T-shirt made with that as it's logo?)....Finally, I really, really HATE Liver....

I hope life is treating you well. I have written to you a couple of times but nothing in return. how is life going for you today? we are in the midst of a bunch of different sh*t most of it bad. not sure we are going to be able to stay here in Hawaii. but God will tell us where to go and as long as we have Faith and Trust in Him all will be well. Aloha and Hugs my brother, JJ

I see you are online right now but yuo do not show up in the chat box. I too have been a chronic pain manager for over 25 years. 22 surgeries in 24 yrs will do that sH&t to you. Life today is manageable because of the choices I make today. I do not claim to have all the answers, I also probably don't know the question but together we can find out the solution. just put one foot in front of the other and keep walking my brother. Hugs, JJ

G'Day mate.. I don't know your name, but here down under everyone's "mate" until one gets to know them.. I've read a lot on your profile and I must say you definitely have the gift of the gab :) I write a lot of poetry these days as opposed to writing in a "Diary".. Put simply, the ability to express myself in any way is a blessing.. I did a lot of damage to myself while "out there" I'd very much like to keep in touch, so please accept my friend request..
Keep safe and enjoy your weekend.. :D

Pain Management Dr.'s caused ny 3rd heart attack by taking me off my heart medication for 4 months and my vein plaqued up and I had to have a rotorooter job. Having been in Chronic pain my entire 24 years in Narcotics Anonymous. when i wake up every morning I am instantly a 7 on the pain scale. right now I have re-torn my left rotator cuff after having it fixed 17 years ago and my right shoulder is frozen and it was operated on in 2002. So I have exchanged my pain meds for an alternative way. Being a full blow diabetic the pain meds i was taking were slowly killing me. I live in a State where you may have Medicinal Marijuana. now I have talked this out with my God, My sponsor, My Dr, and my wife. I am 24 years older now and approaching 60. I smoke a little pot 3 times a day and i have already have cut my opiate use in half. I know why I smoke today. I have had 22 surgeries in 24 years including open heart surgery. Plus i have 8 broken ribs right now. so my pain tolerance is very low at this moment but I do not give into the active addict in my head. I listen to my Heart and do what God and my Dr.'s tell me too do. some True NA people might call that a relapse. I personally do not care what they think I am trying to extend my life not take days off. So I am fine with my choice, I still live the NA way, I go to meetings, I sponsor people, and play the guitar a lot. I have 7 of them. I have videos at JJ DeTemple on youtube. go check them out. I have been playing guitar for 47 years........I love it. just for today I am ok with me......I am also on FB as JJ DeTemple......

Dear Members:Below is the link to a Blog I had intended to launch back in 2012. But, as things frequently do, I became side-tracked and burried under the avalanche of work needed to finish compliling
