Talk to others with an Ostomy


It is still uncertain whether or not I have Crohn's or Ulcerative colitis, all my test results came back inconclusive. What I do know is that i no longer have a large intestine, and never will. June 2017 I had my first of 4 surgeries, had an ileostomy for 2 years...this year I had re-attachment/pouch surgery...and things have been going well so far.

I am a sepsis survivor.

I'm a nurse by profession, animal lover, dog and cat mom...have a few tattoos. I love going to concerts, I like hard rock/metal music. That's me in a nutshell! I enjoy a good laugh, always.

One of the best things to happen to me was to connect with an old childhood friend who I reconnected with while I was's nice to hang out and make jokes with someone who "gets it"! I don't have premium, or whatever so I can't chat or send you messages...I can only reply to them, if I’m on here within 14 days of receiving if I haven’t responded that’s why.
