________ would help me feel more calm about my health.

When you live with primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1), it can be challenging to manage the demands, needs, and treatment that come with it. Reaching a state of calm and balance may mean taking intentional steps or seeking help if necessary (or it may even look like getting answers!). What would help you feel more calm about your health?

Lupus #Flares #Antibiotic

I'm taking Antibiotic for 7 days. Coz of some infections in my feet. Now I am having fever. I also have kidney issues. Tbh, my doctor said I can still work. For the past year I've been on and off from work. My insurance got denied. Lupus sucks. How do you cope up with flares up easily? It's affecting as well my income. How you find another job that would work on your needs ? Never thought I'm gonna have this kind of autoimmune #Lupus #Kidney #ChronicPain #Fibromyalgia #Grief #Anxiety #MentalHealth #Pelvicpain #Lupus #Insomnia #RaynaudsPhenomenon #Fever

My body picks the worst times...

Ended up back in the ER for a kidney infection. Third antibiotic seems to be helping. But, of course, it happened on the worst possible day. My disability hearing I've been waiting years to have... I managed to get out of the hospital in time. However, I was in so much pain I allowed the ER to give me pain meds. I never make that mistake but I did this time. And, lo and behold, as soon as my hearing started I began throwing up. Thank God it was over the phone so the judge only had to hear it. Of course my body would not relent and the hearing had to be postponed. I'm so angry with myself and rather embarrassed. My husband is supportive but not surprised - he says my body always finds a way to mess things up. And the pain meds? Didn't even touch my pain. Never does. And now I'm hoping I didn't ruin everything with the judge - though she was very nice and understanding.

Hi

Hi,
My name is Jacqueline. I am new to the group. I am a 52 year old survivor of Chronic Kidney Disease since age 12.
Along with kidney disease brings many other health issues. I was blessed with a kidney transplant in 2007. However, there are still obstacles to deal with. I would luv to meet others to share coping with them.

Quick Tip Thursday: Have Your Kidneys Checked Regularly

Many people with diabetes do not experience any symptoms of diabetic kidney disease. The only way to determine whether you have diabetic kidney disease is by getting your kidneys checked regularly. It’s recommended to get tested every year for kidney disease if you have type 2 diabetes or have type 1 diabetes for more than 5 years. If you have a different type of diabetes, then reach out to your healthcare provider to find out how often you should have your kidneys checked.
