  • Toni B writes about Kidney Disease

My name is Toni B. I have been living with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) for approximately five (5) years. ESRD means my kidneys are not working and therefore, require dialysis to sustain my life. Peritoneal Dialysis is the type of treatment I use, which is completed by me at home. I spend approximately 12 hours per day preparing for treatment, in treatment and disconnecting from treatment.  Previously, I worked as a psychotherapist, which has helped me to understand myself and other to develop excellent lifestyle habits to live victoriously, no matter what circumstances we find ourselves in. I would like to share information with you to assist you or someone you know traveling down a similar kidney journey. There are upcoming topics to address general questions and concerns to better understand ESRD and how to live our best possible health. Also, let me know if you have questions or concerns you would like addressed. Remember, the information I will offer is general and good for most circumstances. However, each personal situation has specific differences which will require specific information from YOUR personal care team. So, look for me as we take this journey together. (alternate: come, travel down this road with me)

Keep doing the dailies to live healthily.

Toni B
