Hi! I was diagnosed with Kidney Disease in 2008 and just recently progressed to End Stage Renal Disease. I am pre dialysis but I think that will be changing soon. I'm scared of what the future holds for me and I wanted to join this group to talk to other people who are going through the same things. I'm so scared of the unknown...especially dialysis. I am hoping to be able to do PD dialysis when the time comes because I have a very demanding job that I need to keep. I have an extremely supportive husband but I cant expect him to understand completely since he isn't going though this. I'm also mad...I'm mad because I had a nephrologist that I was seeing for many years and she had me diagnosed at a much lower stage than I really am. I recently found a great nephrologist but I think that it is too late and the damage is already done. It is gotten to the point where my illness is starting to impact my career and I just need help
Thanks for listening!!
