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.
Well this weekend was busy busy busy but it was great! Saturday was the kidney walk and I got to meet Grizz Chapman from 30 Rock. He had a kidney transplant! Being at the walk was great my dad and Callie came down and it was great hanging out with Callie and Lins after the walk we went and got starfish tats on the top of our feet hurt like hell but totally worth it I love my sisters and I am glad we got to do that. Oh and I also got to help Grizz and his donor Ryan cut the ribbon which was AWESOME!!!!!!!! After the walk I paid for it though I didn't drink enough water so I have been feeling a little crappy probably didn't help that I missed my 10 dialysis. Uncle Jim will be here tomorrow and start testing Wed. Fingers crossed everyone. I better go lay down feeling a little crappy again. Night all
