I have been an Ostomy patient for 12 years. I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease in 1992. I have been through hell and back with it but yet I am still here. I would just like to meet others with ostomies and learn more about how they deal with everyday living. It is difficult for me because I never know how I will be received. Most people that know me have no idea I wear a colostomy. As you guys know we can't control gas. Everything I eat gases me so I stay clear of people and crowds. It makes my life a bit boring and dull. I have to change daily due to my weeping skin. My ostomy/wound specialist can't find any issues with my skin. I just need to find out what others are doing. Maybe you guys can help me and maybe I can help you.
