Life on Dialysis

Never Give Up –

When my dialysis weekend ended the evening of April 12, I do have to admit that I hoped my week would go well or better than the last two weeks.  Today has proven to be good enough to get by, and now I have one more treatment for the week to get through before another dialysis weekend begins once I leave the clinic.  I have found taking time to read does help pass the time as well I have taken a couple of naps as well.  When you are wiped out sleep does wonders for you.  Now, let’s look forward to a day off of treatment, and let the rest of the week finish out before repeating itself.  Yes, dialysis has been going well.

With dialysis going well lately, I do have to admit that two weeks ago I dealt with emotions that scared me a little bit.  The fall I had could have helped the graft clot and not work for several hours until after I had a procedure done to get it to work  again.  That dratted fall brought up a whirlwind of anxiety that lasted for days until recently.  I have been learning that some things are out of my control and what happened a couple of weeks ago was not in my control and not my fault.  I have been careful.

    1. Yetzirah,

      Thank you so much. I am learning to handle situations that I have no control of in my world. I am here for a reason and I am doing what I can with what I have. It is not easy some days, but I still move ahead and live my life with God close by. When I have anxiety, it is more challenging, but I manage and I have what is necessary. Thanks, again. Have a good weekend!
