I have been open with my depression through kidney disease, dialysis, and subsequently post transplant. Mental health is a topic that needs much more attention in the health world. I am not speaking of just patients, but doctors and nurses as well. We are all on the same team and if we do not refocus towards the entire team, the patient may not see as positive outcomes as desired. I have decided to read CS Lewis Mere Christianity and it opened my eyes so much.
Sometimes depression grows within us because we are either not asking enough questions or we are asking the wrong questions. The books I have been reading have me looking at my journey in a number of different ways and its truly helping. 🙏
