Life goes on!

Hey all my fellow ostomates! I havent been on the forum in awhile because...wait for it.... I've been out having fun and dating! I was so worried about dating with my stoma and all. I told this guy I've been talking to honestly because I just felt like its a part of me and I didnt want to get feelings for someone and then have them freak on me. His response? "Thats weird but cool, glad you're healthy" I had nothing at all to worry about. Seriously life with this bag is amazing! I have gone out with friends, gone on dates, and just been able to live a life that is more than I have done in years with my Crohn's! I just wanted to say I havent forgotten about you all and thank you for all of the amazing advice on my days feeling down. I love everyone on here!
