My name is Kristin Shelley, I am 26 years old I was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy in 2007. I didn't know that from the time of my diagnosis in December 2007 to May 2010 , I would be on dialysis.I am writing this in hopes of my experience helping others understand the situation completely.This is not an easy journey. It is though the journey life has taken me on, as well as one you may have to take; and with every day I am stronger mentally and emotionally.
So today I decided to start a garden. It took my mind of things for awhile and it looks great! My mom found this beautiful metal candle holder thing that I snatched from her and that is in the middle so when I go out at night it is nice and relaxing. My weekend was good I got to rest a lot which I absolutly loved because I really needed it. Bad news though I am getting a sore throat which means I have to choke down some Goldenseal stuff taste like absolute shit but it helps so much with infection. Well I better go take a bag out and get ready to do a transfer. Say a little prayer for me my dads cross mathching results come in this week.
