Anyone with Crohn's living in Ottawa?

Somehow i hear about all these people who have support groups in their town and friends who have crohn's just like them. I haven't found any yet. I live in Ottawa and would really like to email or find people who know what i'm going through. My name is Nathalie and i'm 27 yrs old. I've had crohn's and an ileostomy since i was 13 and about to undergo surgery for fistulas and resection of ileostomy. Having a hard time and could use the support.
Take care and good luck everyone!

Is it to late to reply to this post? I'm also looking for people to hang out with in Ottawa with crohn's. I've had it for 10 years I feel like I missed out on a good part of my life because of embarrassment, always telling people I have travelers diarrhea HaHa!! I would like to meet people like me! I'm 36 year old male and sometimes still go out for drinks! If anyone is intersted in chatting let me know!

Keep up the good fight!
