I'm 24 years old with stage 3 CKD.

It's not often you hear someone my age say something like that, and that makes this disease that much harder to accept and deal with. I know, I know, I feel like i'm throwing myself a pity party but I don't think there is another way I can honestly wrap my head around this disease.

Are there any people out there dealing with this condition that has gotten over the initial stages of guilt and moved on to acceptance?

What are the best ways you guys stay positive and continue the relationships around you?

Are there any of you around my age who is able to offer advice on feeling alone?

Hi timewilltell123. I'm sorry to hear of your diagnosis. But I'm wondering why you would feel guilty about your condition?

Hey there! Make a B issue started when I was 21 years old. I am currently 27 and everything is going great! I just wanted you to know if you need someone to talk to feel free to email me. I have had a kidney transplant and suffered with kidney related problems for many years so just keep me in mind when you are having a down day.

Please don't feel alone. I'm here and I care. I'm 60 and was just diagnosed with CKD. I feel like you, not getting the answers I need. Are you having any symptoms? I'm suffering with acidosis. It causes my mouth to burn.
Have you been to a nephrologist yet, I'm still waiting
