Im very family oriented they come first.I found this site by accident and im glad i did because it would be great to talk to some people who have a colostomy-ileostomy maybee i wont feel so alone.Id like to date someone with the same situation im in,but even to make friends would be great.Im very open so anyone can ask me anything.Hope to hear from you.Derek

Hi my name is Derek im 35yrs old and have had crohnns disease for 15yrs.Ive had many flare ups and hospital stays during these yrs,but the last 2 years have been the worst.In 2010 i had to get a colostomy bag which was temp.After a year i had it reversed.Only 6 months later the crohns had spread terribly through my colon resulting in an ileostomy.This happend just this past august.Having a hard time adjusting to it and even a harder time explaining it to woman.Ive been having trouble meeting woman because i dont know how or when to tell them that i have a crap bag on my very caring,friendly outgoing,loyal,funny and a great love for life.
