...I'm a doctoral student in Ohio. I have had my ostomy since I was 15-so almost ten years. I have an ileostomy as a result of Hirschsprung's Disease. I wasn't diagnosed until I was 14, which is very rare. I was supposed to show symptoms as a baby. Basically, my health is an anomaly. My interests and hobbies vary depending on my mood. Currently, I love going to concerts--especially outdoor summer concerts. Being with my close friends, and pretty much just having a good time. I am a media student, so I watch a LOT of TV--both good and bad. Music is an essential part of my day. I can't go a day without listening to something. I can listen to just about any type of music. Although, I do have my boundaries. I love to travel. I've been to Europe four times, and I am planning to go back soon.

...Since I could only check one (Looking For), I checked male. But, I really don't care. It would just be nice to talk to people who can relate to the medical side of my life.
