You Matter Moment
I have been on dialysis since 2008. There have been a lot of ups, downs, and very close calls. It can take your joy away if you are not careful. So, I shared YOU MATTER cards with the dialysis social worker with the instructions to please give them to patients he feels are down.
My hope is the YOU MATTER cards cheer up other patients knowing the cards come from a fellow dialysis patient who knows how it feels to be sad sometimes.
Sharing YOU MATTER cards has helped me get away from feeling sorry for myself and to fight to be positive, active, and hope for the future. I participate in the You Matter Marathon because it is important for me to remember that I matter. Life gets bumpy sometimes so we all need that very positive reminder to keep going.
