GEEZ "finally" I get my chance to say "hello" and welcome to our site.  You look young!  When did you start dialysis.  Hey, there is a thread in General Discussion called "How Did Your Learn That Your Kidneys Were Failing".  I'd like to hear your story.

http://ihatedialysis.com/forum/index.php?topic=1016.0

Oh, and I'm Quoted in the Magazine..... AHhhmmmm   8)

I have a friend who started dialysis the same time I did in 1987.  She never wanted a transplant either.  She is doing fine.  We had a wager going on who would live the longest, me with a transplant or her on dialysis.  She won, except I decided to go back on dialysis.   :(

Welcome Zach! You clearly have a lot to share. It's good to know that the site seems to have lightened up on spelling so I hope you will be comfortable posting. I think you will find there are lots of good resources on line, here and elsewhere!

Welcome Zack! If you don't mind my asking, can you post some couscous recipes (in the recipes thread) as I have never tried that but would be interested.

Will do!  Although my recipes may be a bit bland for most folks.    :)

I've already made a few comments in the Diet and Recipes Discussion:  in the Phosphates folder, and I started a new subject folder about complete meals with the nutrition information on calories, protein, phosphorus, and potassium.  I hope everyone joins in!

Hi Zach,

Wish it was only a Dream ;) Welcome to the site.

Been back on dialysis for over 18 years now. Had a Transplant which hung on for nearly 7 years. Started dialysis at the age of ten in 1977. had Transplant 81.

I did used to split food into their different components. But decided after a while, could not be bothered. I see you try to have 90grammes of protein a day. I am suppose to be on a 70 gramme protein diet. But that went out of the window years ago. After a while you know what you can eat, or in most cases can not eat :-\

Yours

Oh I forgot ... in 1989, serving as reporter, I teamed up with award-winning director Ilan Ziv (Consuming Hunger; People Power) and Icarus/Tamouz Media for a investigative health documentary about the international trade in human organs. The program was produced in association with the BBC (for their program Antenna), RTL+, VARA and the Canadian Broadcasting Company.

I had a great time, traveling to London, Paris, Frankfurt, Innsbruck, Manila, and Guangdong, and Hong Kong (loved it in Hong Kong ... stayed an extra two weeks!).

You lucky dog you.  :P ;D  Other then going to Canada ( several times ) I have never been anywhere outside of the US.  Let alone, been any farther west then Indiana.  I have been up and down the east coast though, even been to Key West Florida.  ;D

Well, if there is ever a chance in you life that you find the opportunity to go there, you may want to check it out.  I think it's a very beautiful place to visit.

Hi everyone!

I'm Zach.

I'm not a very good typist.  Not much of a speller, either.  So I apologize for my future posts.    :o

I've been on in-center hemodiaylsis for 24 years.  I'm still learning things!
I think we can all learn something new each day ... and we can do it together on this great site.

I produce/direct documentaries for public tv.  I spend too much of my time raising funds (no, I don't get not'n from those pleadge drives!    >:D)  But I love what I do!

More to come ... stay tuned!

Regards,
--Zach

Ah yes, and so it is that we endeavor to live the dream.
Some have 'passed on' to experience a new dream.
Some are still with us.
May the good dream linger awhile.
May we dialysis folks, one day, have the opportunity to share our dialysis experience's.
------------------------------------------
“Row, row, row your boat,
 Gently down the stream.
 Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
 Life is but a dream.”

Duh. I love the meaning behind this nursery rhyme.

It’s a metaphor for life. We all agree on that. But there are multiple theories on how to break it down, what each object and line mean.

Be Well

"Wabi-sabi nurtures the authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect."

Don't ever give up hope, expect a miracle, pray as if you were going to die the next moment in time, but live life as if you were going to live forever."

A wise man once said, "Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present."
