Hello Internet World!! My name is Amelia but I go by Amy for short. I am a 33 year old mother of two very active kids. I have a pretty big family and weirdly enough we all live on the same block. I have a brother who served for the United States Marine Corp(Hoorah) for six years and was deployed to Iraq twice. As you can see I am so very proud to have a Hero as a brother. Both my parents are retired but are the most hard-working retired people I know. I have been blessed to have a great man by my side for seven years now. He is one of the many reasons I get up every morning.
With all that being said, you would think my life sounds pretty easy. Well, even with the ideal life I may have, I still do have my share of challenges. One of the major challenges I face and the motivation for this blog is my current fight with Kidney Disease. I would like to share my experience for all those who suffer or feel defeated by this illness. I would like families who are probably just like mine to know that it’s not the end of the world for your love one.
My goal is to make this blog a forum for all of us who have this illness to know there is support out there. We just need to take the time to share our stories and I’m starting by sharing mine.
I have Kidney Disease but I am not my Disease……
