Hi everyone! I was recently diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis which, after a two week stay in the hospital, has been one of the hardest experiences I have ever had to go through. The reality is that some people with UC end up getting an ostomy bag as a last resort. For those of you who don't know, the ostomy bag is a device that is attached to the lower abdomen to collect waste. My quesiton is this: if you met a guy like me, went on a few dates and found out that I had an ostomy bag, would that pretty much be a deal breaker? Would I basically be worthless for dating? Like anyone else, I want to be in a solid relationship with someone, but I'm just trying to figure out if this basically makes me a freak show in the gay community. I'm gonna try and ignore trolls and just focus on the serious answers. I feel like I'm a guy who has a lot to offer, and I would hope that one aspect of my life wouldn't make me an outcast.
