Meet & talk to fellow OstoMates 20,240 members


My name is Xan. I am 19. I was diagnosed with UC when I was 8, had my colon removed at 12 and a J-pouch made at 13. None of that went very well though, so now I'm here, with a temporary ostomy. The thing is very convenient compared to what came before, so I'll probably keep it for a few years before subjecting myself to another possible failure.

While I'm on this site I hope to make friendships and connections with those who know the ostomy struggle. I want to grow and help grow in any way I can.

My eyes are turned towards the stars and my head is in the clouds. I can be found daydreaming and planning a future for myself.

Some things I love include space, acrobatics, kickboxing, learning new skills, art, and Star Wars. The Last Jedi was a fantastic movie, fight me.

One quote to describe me is, "Jack of all trades, master of none. Better than a master of one."
