Crohn's & Ostomy Info

I am a 34 yr old woman, a Crohn's fighter and an Ostomy survivor. I have felt the embarrassment of both topics more times then I would like to mention.
I was diagnosed with Crohn's at age 23. I had a full Proctocolectomy which resulted in a permanent Ostomy 6 years ago. I would like to share my story with anyone who may be in a similar situation. I know the days can be long and the fight is hard at times. I felt like an outcast, like my life was worthless! Today I am happy and positive about the future.
