On Friday I finally graduated college from #stonybrookuniversity with a BA in #psychology. I didn't #graduate with awards,recognition or summa cum laude which would have been great but I graduated through some much #adversity in my life and I kept going. So that in it's self is a huge #accomplishment The road was long, windy, and a difficult one. It took a great deal of #determination, #optimism, and #perseverance. I had first enrolled into #guilfordcollege in NC but I had to leave due to medical issues. These medical issues became worse and more serious. When I was finally feeling better and up to school I applied to transfer to Stony Brook but was rejected due to not enough credits. So I started over at Suffolk County Community College and earned my associates then transferred to Stony Brook University to earn my bachelors in psychology. All the while throughout my college career and through my 3 years off school I went through 8 surgeries, #kidneyfailure and #heartfailure and a #kidneytransplant. It just comes to show that you can really do anything you put your mind too. I completed most of my college career while on #peritonealdialysis I did every night. My last year of college I did it all with a #transplantedkidney donated by my fantastic girlfriend @linterlicchio! I can't go through this post without mentioning the support and love from my family and friends. Without my family by my side this journey would have been a lot harder. Without my friends I would have been lonely without their visits in #stonybrookmedicalcenter Also want to give a huge shoutout to everyone at Stony Brook University Medical Center from people down at transport, the lovely nurses at 16N to the nurse who saw my heart rate at 150bpm while laying down sleeping, the dialysis team, to the doctors and surgeons who performed surgery on me. I literally would not be here without them. So thank you! If you've made it this far on my post, my message to you is that you can do anything you can put your mind to. No matter what adversity comes your way. All you need is some support, a good attitude and determination and perseverance. If I can do it, you can do it too!

After discovering my health issues, my doctor encouraged me to change my diet (of course I still eat waffles....sometimes). I decided to take their advice so I can keep living a healthy lifestyle. I am blessed that I am young and still strong enough to be able to do what I love...work out. I am proud of myself that I go to the gym regularly and now I eat better than ever. #commitment #kidneyfailure #dialysis

Yesterday I checked into the hospital complaining of chest pains and they diagnosed me with End Srage Renal Failure. A total shutdown of my kidneys then I realized I lost my battle with Kidney Disease a total health catastrophe. I am currently in ICU fighting for my life. Please pray for me and my family at this time. #KidneyFailure #hemodialysis #CKD

Weeks have passed. Months even. I have been busy and happy and well, trying to find the worthiness in the small eddies that form the quiet and beautiful stream of life. I haven't done much writing for my blog but I have been doing plenty of other things. Tom has been insisting I wait to post something till we have an actual date rather than just a month (August, it's August!) but nothing is certain in this game and certainly we still haven't been given anything definite yet. So here we are, in the interim, a reflection on my right now.
Please share with me your thoughts. They mean such a lot to me and the way I feel connected to you all.

Feeling faint? Constantly cold? Fatigued? These are just a few symptoms of kidney disease that easily go overlooked. That's why @nationalkidneyfoundation hired Sid the Kid to make a music video about the importance of getting tested and preventing other chronic diseases. It's easy-peezy!
