    Everyday is a battle.

    Today was better than most. Tomorrow I have to go and get a CT on my head because of severe crippling headaches that don't go away. Then off to dialysis. Hard to believe I'm only 19.

    Owing to Spina Bifida my left kidney was

    malformed. It failed a few years before my right one gave up. I have been on dialysis for almost 9 years now. My kidneys now don't work at all. Does being on dialysis bother me? Not one bit. I am involved with my treatment and quite enjoy being somewhat in control.
