    You are not alone! I've been on dialysis now for five years. In the beginning, I missed my old life. I went to a clinic three times a week, felt like crap, and I, too, had to carry around an oxygen tank. Things improved once I started on PD, but I still feel alone. ESRD and dialysis are things my family and friends don't really understand. Because I look better and healthier on the outside, they think I'm fine on the inside. Even friends who've received kidneys have left me behind. I'm so sorry you feel this way. Just know this community is here to help us through this!
