    and yet there is your "no kidney left behind" comment. It's damned admirable to have a sense of humour after all you've been through and all you are going through.

    A loss of politeness, of gentle manners, is more significant than a riot.

      You have to laugh at it, because otherwise (and sometimes anyway) you'll end up crying at it. I am currently wearing a t-shirt that reads

      DEAD
      WOMAN
      WALKING

      Kidney failure sucks

      which I got from a friend of mine, after I found it online, and wore to my first day of dialysis training. I put on my campaign flyer when I was running for national delegate last year that if I was elected, I'd be the only delegate who wouldn't have to pee. You have to laugh at it, to actively look for and find ways to laugh at it, or you flat-out go insane.

      Want to be a living kidney donor? I need one from someone with a bloodtype of B or O. Drop a note at riverheart.livejournal.com.
