As of today November 2, 2018, I have been on hemodialysis for twenty years!
Thanks to this site, I have managed to learn and grow in the dialysis life.
I have friends across the world.
IHD.com has saved me from many mental breakdowns and buoyed my spirits when necessary.
Thank you to all the members and especially to my friends and family!

Twenty years!  I don't know whether to offer you congratulations or commiserations, so I'll opt for the former since HD has kept you alive and with us!

Thank YOU for your support on this site and for your part in making IHD the wonderful source of information that it is.   :grouphug;
