Elizabeth.. Your father was so lucky to be able to be flexable with his time when dealing with dialysis
Judy.. My mother was a nurse with great advice and a heart of gold but to take her own advice was impossible.
But nurses are a breed of their own
Amy.. Joint pain has gotta suck. My husband has roaming joint pain and sometimes I can see his discomfort in his eyes.
I have been told dialysis will happen. I can't run from it or hide under a rock it will happen. Don't know when, could be tomorrow or 5 years from now. I'm just now starting to deal with my kidneys. Well I mean I have been seeing my doctors goings to my procedures and having my surgeries. But to acually think about the future. Trying to somewhat plan or think through what will happen.
I work a fulltime job. Usually I work 12 hour days 5 days a week. In a warehouse which is pretty hard on my body. But I love my job other than having a crazy, mean, coldhearted supervisor. I love inventory the bigger the scale the happier I am. I even know I can't be doing this for to many more years. Its wearing me down.
But thank you all for responding. It gives me a view of how others deal with health issues regarding their kidneys..
Off to work I go
