I'm 27 years old and I haven't been diagnosed with Crohn's or colitis but have similar symptoms of it as a result of having an ostomy due to desmoid tumors and FAP. Because of the ostomy and the fact that I don't know other young adults who have the same issues I do I have a tendency to isolate and I have never tried dating because I've spent most of my 20s dealing with these issues. I realized recently that that kind of bummed me out so I was wondering if there were others who felt the same way or who had previously struggled with these issues too.
