My New Bum

Hello my secret freinds, I've suffered from Crohn's disease for 18 years until the need for an ileostomy and bag nine months ago, a massive Crohn's attack and urgent immediate surgery for a perforated bowl left me with stoma/fistula/bag that I really wasn't prepared for, it's confusing just recalling the event, it's been a life-changer but not a life beater, although some days/nights can bring you to tears I've learnt that each corner brings a new direction and new reasons to carry on :)

looking for new friends who understand where we're at and how to cope, with a bit of fun on top!
