Hi!! My name is Sheridan and I'm 22.

I'm just looking for some friends (around my age) who get what I'm dealing with, and face the same sort of obstacles and challenges that I find myself facing as an ostomate! I'm 7 weeks post op from my first surgery, and am still 5 weeks away from the second.

As a new ostomate, life has gotten more complicated. I'm currently taking off another semester from school which is heartbreaking.. But I know my health comes first and I'm being as positive as I can about it all! I also finally have a taste of what life without UC is like and I am so happy that I made the choice to have surgery when I did.

Aside from all of that: I rarely talk about my medical situation. I really have been trying to make the best out of where I am right now, and still try to live as normally of a life as I can until my next surgery comes along and my ileostomy is reversed. However, having a friend who is around my age and gets what I'm dealing with would be so amazing right now.

I'm so so friendly and really love to talking to anyone :)
