Just found out that I have kidney disease. Stage 3.. I was floored and would have taken the news fine, but I had my 11 year old son with me, who asked so many questions, I was starting to think that the doctor was getting irritated. I have so many things to do. Like get all of them out of high school AND college. My twins are going to the 10th grade in the fall, my other daughter will be going to the 8th and my son is going to the 6th grade. i AM STUCK ON STUPID. Any suggestions on how to cope. By the way, have never done drugs, I have a high tolerance for pain, no smoking or drinking. I acquired this because of high blood pressure, and I found that out 2 years ago. I was probably in the early stages before I found out that I had blood pressure problems.
