My life was turned upside down when I went to the hospital expecting maybe an overnight stay and some IV steroids, and instead spent over a month in the hospital and went home with an ostomy. I'm looking for people in similar situations (people with ostomies) who are making the best out of this shitty hand and still thriving.

I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease when I was 15 and it was mostly controlled with medicine up until June of 2019. That's when things really went downhill and I ended up with the ostomy.
