Osto Gamer

Hi there, I'm Jake!

For a little over 7 years I struggled with Ulcerative Colitis. It was full of ups and downs, medications, terrible days and a constant fight to keep pushing. I was doing so bad last year I had no choice other than to have surgery. I had to get my colon removed. So last October..I had my colon taken out and got an Ostomy bag in return.

Here we are, about 9 months later. Time seemed to fly by. I've been feeling great for the most part. I felt like I lived in a bubble all these years, while I watched everybody else have a life. I feel like I'm still trying to transition into "The Real World" now. It's a weird thing to me, and I'm trying and slowly taking steps to have a good and better life now.

Some other stuff about me...Well, I'm a dork! I love gaming and am a techy. Oh, and did I mention I love to eat?
