Featured You Matter Moment

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. 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 them with the dialysis social worker with the instructions to please give them to patients he feels are down. I hope that it cheers them up coming from a fellow dialysis patient who knows how it feels to be sad because of it sometimes.

Sharing You Matter cards has  helped me get away from feeling sorry for myself. And to again fight to be positive, active and hope for the future.
