After the improper castling moment 13. O-O,
I was forced to gambit my bishop 19. Bh6
thus turning the game into a draw.

What would happen after 24. Kg8?
The interesting game can be verified ...
Yea! That's another option, but the opponent loses his queen
at the cost of my Rook and Knight.
A good game ...
I had a similar experience recently, where a mistake in the early middlegame developed into a very dangerous looking attack for white. To neutralize it, I sacrificed a pawn to trade Qs off, hoping to maneouver the game into something where I had drawing chances.
After I dropped a pawn (turning the game into a 2 pawn deficit), my opponent began to oblige me in my quest to draw the seemingly lost game: he allowed a pawn trade that let me activate my inactive bad bishop (and turned it into a good B); in the opposite colored B endgame that we reached, he then allowed a trade of the rook pairs that were remaining.
My endgame play was far from perfect, but I reached the drawing position that I hoped for: opposite colored Bs with mine, with support from the K, holding up his 2 passers on the Qside so that he could not penetrate the position to queen either pawn. A rep draw followed.
I'm a big believer in playing on with a modest material deficit for as long as I can see some possibility of either reaching a theoretical draw, or complications where I may find either a perp check or simply come out better off than the early position looked.
Please share your game here ...!
Have patience, the game can be a draw ...
