I don’t know how to feel

Post by Nancy5312 »

I found this forum because I’m honestly scared. I just feel exhausted that I have to be going through this at 22. I don’t know where to go from here and what questions to ask my doctor. I have an anxiety of death and this has been such a weight on my shoulders. I need hope... help..

Hi Nancy5312,
If you have just been diagnosed with a kidney condition, it is normal to feel shocked and lost so you are not on your own.

Have a look at the Home page of this website - https://www.kidneypatientguide.org.uk/
The articles on there should help you understand what is going on, and give you some assurance that things are not as bad as you think.

Read the articles then come back if you have some questions.

Best wishes.
