- In my own words:
I'm just shy of 27 and have had Crohns since just after my 21st birthday. Just had my first surgery about a month ago (loop ileostomy). Havent named my stoma yet. Figure I'll wait until the docs tell me if he's permanent or temporary before I get too attached. I love the outdoors and can't overstate how much I love a good book. I've grown much closer to my family since being diagnosed and I honestly think they sometimes have a harder time dealing with it than I do. Lucky for me, I've always had a good sense of humor which has helped tremendously during the harder times with my disease.
