Living with a chronic illness doesn't help when you're also living with major depression and a smattering of anxiety/panic disorders. But just tonight I learned that I had a low kidney function and (wait for it) blood in the urine which should not have been there. Now the depression is hitting me hard and I was barely stable to begin with. I feel so overwhelmed and saddened. I don't need another organ to malfunction on me. I'm going to college in two months! It's times like these that I wish life was like a video game that you could restart if the going got tough and you could make it all better again. Unfortunately, that's not the case and I have to face the music. Normally I like music, but this just isn't my tune.

Hi there Silver,
You certainly seem to have a lot on your plate at the moment and I think that its great, the way you talk about it so maturely(sp). Have the doctors told what the dx is on the blood & kidney function? Are you under treatment for the depression/anxiety? If you are and you dont feel its working then maybe another trip to the doctors is in order.
I often think that the lack of a reset button on humans was a bit of a design flaw lol. But if we had a reset button so we could reboot everytime something went wrong or got difficult, we wouldnt learn the lessons we learn or gain the experience we get.
I hope everything starts to head your way and that you get a great start to your college work!
