    it's hard to know what may be in your future. You may be able to prevent it from getting worse for a long while or find yourself at the point of dialysis. Even if you have to turn to dialysis, it's not the end of the world. You can still live a happy and productive life. I've been on dialysis for over 4yrs now. I work full time and lead a great life still. Yes it's a lot of adjustments and having a new way of living, but I'm alive and happy (most days). There are different treatments out there, in center hemo, home hemo and Peritoneal Dialysis (which is what I switched to about 6 mths ago and it has given me way more freedom). I'm working on transplant. I still have a lot of life that I want to live. You just have to do the best you can and try not to let it get you down too much!
