I’m a lover of life!
*Diagnosed with UC at 15
*Permanent ileostomy in 2008
*Total proctectomy in 2016

I realized how "vanilla" my profile is, so I thought I'd share some more about myself. I'm an 80s nerd-bigtime! Movies, name it. If it's 80s I probably love it. I love to laugh and joke. I'm one of those that laugh at things that aren't P.C 🤣 I've always been a big prankster and have been told that my first really good prank was at the age of 2. I blame my parents for my warped sense of humor. As far as having a colostomy bag, it's a pain at times, but I've learned to live with it. I look at it as just another appendage like an extra toe or arm (which I don't have by the way) I'm blessed to say it hasn't slowed me down at all. If anything, I'm the healthiest I've ever been. It's amazing what happens after you get rid of a nasty gut. Who needs that sucker anyway, right? 😉
