Hi everyone,

I have not been an active participant on this site before (shame on me I know lol), but I wanted to say hello.  My name is Tracy, 48 yo male, and have been successfully on dialysis for nearly 15 years.  I am at work right now (have worked full time throughout - I am lucky and blessed!)...so don't have a lot of time to post my story of kidney disease and dialysis but plan to in the near future.  I hope my story can be a positive hopeful one for those who are just starting out on dialysis or who have been on for a long time and are struggling - which at one point or another will include pretty much all of us. 

More posts soon...

Welcome Tracy.

Inspiring that you have worked for 15 years while being "connected". I am just coming upon one year (doing Home d) and I am tired of it already.

Welcome and share  your story. :welcomesign;
