Hello everyone! I've had Crohn's disease since I was in high school but took a decade to get officially diagnosed. I've has 2 bowel resections along with numerous other surgeries. a year ago my colon stopped functioning properly and I had no other choice but to have surgery to get an ileostomy bag. I also have a port in my chest so I can administrator 3 liters of IV fluids daily. Life has been a struggle ever since. I've found that dating is practically obsolete now because men aren't comfortable with my ostomy bag and the port weirds them out. I won't lie... I've been down in the dumps because of everything and feel like I'm not worthy of anyone.

      Before you let your doctor remove your Colon , you should try fix your root cause of your disease…. I have seen so many people get cured from Chron’s disease without even medication!!

      You will find someone who doesn’t care about the ostomy bag. Anyone who is that superficial is not worth the time. ❤️ I don’t have an ostomy bag but my bf has been with me through lots of very humiliating situations related to my disease and he doesn’t look at me any differently.
