@azkidney57 you asked how I coped, I pretty much put statistics out of my mind except occasionally when I was very alone, walking or trying to fall asleep. Staying busy and occupied was essential.
Like you, I’m pretty reserved so few people knew of any concerns I had, and I worked to look good all of the time so no one would feel sorry for me – people were constantly telling me how good I looked! It’s sort of ironic because I put less in my appearance now! Even my PCP commented that if he didn’t know I had a serious condition he would think I was very healthy.
Any serious condition causes a certain amount of anxiety, you are not alone and so many of us here have dealt with this. As @colleenyoung said, we do care, and we can relate.
