Gear Jammer

I was diagnosed in 1990 as a young teenager. Many smaller surgeries over the years, and A LOT of different maintenance drugs came to a climax in 2008 where I wound up with a permanent ileostomy, which literally saved my life! I came home a walking skeleton, and I've been eating anything in sight ever since!

I'm now over 6 years drug free, and have never felt better!
