Aug 22, 2018 · Post-Intensive Care Syndrome (PICS) - Let's talk in Intensive Care (ICU)

Thank you so much for the great advice. I am sitting at work and started the breathing exercises, it really did feel good! I will try the others when I get home tonight. I struggle with relaxing so I am looking forward to trying something new.

It was 1 yr ago today and I am OK. Hard to believe but I am staying busy and feeling grateful.

Thank you @mauraacro. I was talking about this just this morning with my mom and my Nephrologist. They suggested to see about saying or doing something at Church since we are a big part of Church.

I am not sure how to go about looking for a living donor. I have let friends and family know but really have not pursued it much. My niece is trying to get on the Kidney exchange program.

I ended up in a coma a year ago, at that time they were anticipating a kidney and liver transplant. Currently my Liver is " healed" but my Kidneys still are not functioning. I am on Dialysis 3 days a week and currently on the Transplant list. This wait is driving me nuts. Very stressful and Dialysis is starting to really make me feel yucky.

Once I get a Kidney I am sure we will celebrate that Anniversary. The waiting for the call is so hard.

@2011panc I also have a strong faith which has grown tremendously in the last year. Little things hit me or remind me of my past and what led me here and my stomach sinks. Yesterday my youngest son,14 yrs old wanted to go for a walk. He took me to where my accident was, the tire marks and certain things are still there. I guess it is his way of trying to heal, he talked a lot about that day and his feelings since he was behind e on the 4-wheeler. It brought back a lot of different feelings. My other son , on the other hand, did not want to go but eventually did, for him he does not like to talk about any of it. I am still so confused about the events of that whole month. My depression also gets worse n the winter, especially Holidays. I pray a lot. I know I wonder off on my thoughts but I feel like my mind is 100 miles a minute. The more I try to relax the worse it gets. Is there a special kind of Yoga that you do? My counselor suggested reading a good book . Do you have any that you could suggest?

Thank you for the insight. I tried my Kayak last week and it was amazing. I have been so busy dwelling on the anniversary of such a tragic thing instead of focusing on the celebration of life and healing. You really made a great point. Maybe it is something to discuss with my family also.
