I found out yesterday that I have end stage (stage 5) Chronic Kidney Disease. I have 10-15 percent kidney function left and have 12 months approximately until I need dialysis.
I'm only 34. I have three small kids. I'm so frightened and sad, I'm up and down like a yoyo. I know I'll be okay, my family is amazing and DH and I will walk our road together no matter how bumpy - hell, we'll walk off a cliff holding hands. But I feel really sad right now and only my husband, parents and brother know.
I just need to process it I guess.

Thinking of you, I don't know what else to say except I hope you can get well again.

I can't even imagine how frightened and worried I would be in your shoes.
I'm really sorry to hear that you're going through this.

You are seriously awesome, and I am sending all the positive vibes your way.
If you need to vent, vent away.

Wow. You poor thing! Do they know how you developed it? It'll be ok. It'll be an inconvenience but if you get your dialysis on time you can live a pretty normal life.
