I’ll admit my biggest fear with this disease is the possibility of living with an ostomy bag. Just the thought of a bag being “attached” to me gives me chills. I hope that day will never come. When I found the below video on YouTube of an ambitious young woman who had to make the decision to have her entire colon removed, it touched my heart. After watching the video I cried, not because her life seemed to be difficult with an ostomy bag, but because she persevered. The video is very inspirational and I plan to download the entire film, I hope you do the same.
Kudos to Rebecca Zamolo for spreading IBD awareness!
