Call me Grace : FSGS Sucks

I have no idea if I can attribute this in any way to my kidneys, my body failing me or my meds, but I'm blaming on something in that realm because...well...because I can.

Also, you can get "water on the brain" like when you have PMS or are pregnant, so that can make you clumsy and fall down. Been there, done that so many times. I even broke a rib while super swollen. I just lost balance after I got out of the shower and fell over. Yep, broke a rib while butt naked and couldn't get off of the floor! It's funny now, but it wasn't at the time!


Woohoo - no more pneumonia (well almost....) but other terrible things, like a car accident...

Hello all!  I felt like it's been forever since I last posted, but it wasn't as bad as I thought once I checked.  I'm writing th...
