I've had Crohn's disease since 2003 and an ostomy since 2010. I write a blog for people with IBD and ostomies because I realized that a lot of us are struggling on our own. My goal is to provide starting points for online research and networking, as well as offer some emotional support. Reaching out to others in the IBD and ostomy communities has been so helpful for me, and I've learned a lot. I'm currently unable to attend school or work, but I want to return to Hope College as soon as my health improves enough.
