Hi my name is Andrew... I'm only 20, not sure if you're younger or older, but I was wondering if we could exchange numbers or maybe chat on here. It seems we are both trying to make a decision whether to become a part of the ostomate community or not.

My parents don't really understand what I'm going through as they have not ever experience tummy issues (I have IBS and pelvic floor dysfunction) ...

Anyways, if you wanna chat with someone in the same boat as you, I'm here. :)

Hi Andrew
I am not 20 by no means but I do know what you are going thru. Noone knows what we are going thru except those of us on here.
I have a temp ileostomy, don't know just yet when I will have it reversed or if I even want to right now. My life is so much better with my ostomy. There are so many things I can do now and not have to worry like I used to.
Gotta head out the door to work.
Come on back we are all here for each other.
