#LiverFailure I am looking for a support group for my liver problems. I have had autoimmune problems and endocrine problems my entire life. Together, they have caused severe damage to my liver. I am now 57 and very disabled by liver cirrhosis. Earlier in life, I was too sick to do things other people did -- I never had a full-time career and was unable to have children. I am very sad about this.
I just spent the last six days in the hospital with Acute Tubular Necrosis, which I hear is not as bad as Hepatorenal Syndrome. Still, that I've now had a severe kidney problem in a addition to the cirrhosis worries me a lot.
I really need some sort of liver support group, but can't find one of people who are similar at all to me.
I would also like to find an in-person group therapy situation with other people who have severe illnesses and are having a hard time coping, but I don't know how to find one.
Any suggestions? I live in Southeast Michigan.
