We live in a very guarded world. So many of us are afraid to say anything about our lives as we are afraid that we will be judged and/or gossiped about. That includes information about illness.
I am pretty open about most things in my life. It is incredible how that looks and feels. I openly write about my illness and other issues and allow anyone to follow my progress.
Why is that? I don’t really know but I do know that I get hundreds of comments thanking me for that. Plus I know that it feels good to not be guarded every minute of every day. And really, who cares what others think about your life? Many folks say it is inspiring.
There are a lot of folks who go through the same issues as you or me but have no support because they are afraid to tell any-one. They think they are unique in their problems.
Remember that everyone has issues and many people have the same issues that you have. Don’t be afraid to reach out to support someone or look for support from someone. It will ease your mind to find out how many folks care about you.
On that note, anyone interested in learning about kidney failure or dialysis is welcome to contact me. I love to talk.
