Yeah, I've been wondering about Gene too. He was having some illness lately. Hope and pray all is well.

Might just be recovering from his surgery to place a fistula for dialysis.

I follow that link and it gives me a last post today (and 4 minutes in the future). If I do an advanced search on the forum for author "GeneL", the last post date is two weeks ago.

4 minutes in the future" probably a time zone issues

It means he was active 56 minutes ago, but that could be checking the forum. last post was a while ago.

Hi guys. Thanks for asking.
I'm actually in the middle of a dialysis session right now.
I haven't felt much like posting since I started dialysis. I realy hate to say that I have been depressed about my health, my situation at home and the lack of support from my son and his family.
I'm having tough time keeping myself motivated to keep going, which is why I haven't been posting. I don't want to burden my friends on the forum with my depression.
Other than that, Happy New Year!

Tell your nephrologist just what you posted!!!! They can give you some good drugs. And don't forget to have a few margaritas before each of your sessions! (But don't drive on the way there.)

Dialysis is tough on the system. It will take time to learn the many variations that can be done in a session to make it go more smoothly. Always let the staff know about how you feel if things are not going as expected.

To be blunt, it's far more of a burden to wonder and worry about you then it would be to read posts from you about being depressed. At least we would know you are still around, and perhaps some of us can help you along. Speedy posted some good suggestions, and I'm sure other folks have experience in your various maladies that they can share with you.

If you aren't up to writing a long post, maybe just check in with a Howdy once in a while. Like calling Mom and Dad to let them know you got home safely. smiling smiley

Thinking you're a burden here is part of the depression. Don't let the beast lead you astray! I concur to let your doctors in on your depression.

That is a really good point, and quite true. Thanks for bringing that up, Pam.

Gene! We're here for you! If you are depressed, let us know. If you are happy, let us know. We want to know because you are one of us and we want to be there for you. So we can't take away any of your physical problems—we can still address your emotional needs, and we want to be there for you.



And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.

GeneL, glad you're hanging in there. We're always happy to hear from you.

Forumite Speedy definitely has the knowledge about what you're going through, so please take his advice and tell the docs and clinic staff how you're feeling.

So I should probably evidence my sense of humor that my wife says has her doomed, since all our kids share it.

You need new kid knees. But my kid's knees hurt all the time due to Osgood-Schlatter's. So be careful what you wish for!
Osgood-Schlatter's


Being sick can be very depressing. And being depressed can make you really sick. And even in Southern California, winter isn't as cheery as other times. Look for the moments of joy, and when you can't, those here will help find them for you.


Good luck.

Be seeing you.

Don't you ever think you're a burden here! Depression is half the battle back to good health and we have your back on this! Nobody here will ignore you, and that's one thing for certain and two things for sure (as a drill sergeant told us many times when we were down in the dirt doing push-ups).
