When I was down in the dumps due to the prospect of having an ilieostomy, I only seemed to find negative attitudes on a lot of forums. I discovered Veganostomy on YouTube and things started looking up for me. His videos are well edited (ie very watchable) and his attitude and enthusiasm I found contagious. It was a recipe I needed at that time.  — Chris
