Hello! I'm Nathan, and I must admit I'm fairly new to this ostomy lark. I had my ileostomy in October 2008, wasn't expecting it but after a very bad flare up of Crohns I didn't have any other choice, such is life!

I'm a 27 year old male who lives in the West Midlands in a town called Stoke-on-Trent (where all the pottery used to come from). I work as an IT manager for a large consultancy firm. In my spare time I like to socialise with friends, go to the cinema or listen to music. I also dabble in photography and enjoy taking pictures of landscapes or wildlife.

Despite all the ailments my body likes to put me through I maintain a sunny outlook on life, a day where you make someone smile is a day you've not wasted.

Would love to chat to other people in the same boat.
