and I'm not talking about watching portions or getting healthy in general either! You see, I'm on dialysis, which means I have to watch my fluid intake like a hawk, among other things.
While the people around me get to feast on that juicy burger and drink as much water as they want to quench their thirst, I can't. I have to watch my protein/phosphate intake, which means I can have a big juicy burger like only once a month. And when I drink, I can only drink the bare minimum.
And don't even get me started on not being able to go on a holiday! You see, I can't miss my treatments, not even once, it's unadvisable. Which means I can only go on weekend trips, only to be on time for my first treatment on Monday! It sucks! You see, if I make arrangements to have my treatments overseas, it'll be prohibitively expensive! So, I'm stuck here for the rest of my life. As I can only take weekend trips, which means they have to be local.
Sometimes, I feel like there's no point to carry on............
