Good morning @duran75a! My nephrologist en encouraged me to bring someone with me the first appointments when everything is overwhelming. My daughter took notes while, I listened and asked questions. Now I make sure I have paper and a pen. I have also used a voice recorder.

Hello Teresa, I immersed myself into the field of Energy Medicine such as Reiki, Healing Touch and Energy Medicine, itself. I have had the opportunity to work with some great teachers in the Twin Cities Area. The practice was another way for me to find the way out of negative thinking. Because of my current medical diagnosis, I have had to change my work schedule to 4 ten hour days to allow a day for treatments. This has greatly reduced the amount of free time I have to practice all of the above but even spending five minutes a day in centering and grounding helps so much. I am a psychotherapist and all the cognitive behavioral techniques were temporary until I incorporated the energy work. Thank you for sharing your journey!

So very nice to meet you, Gaul. Pursuing Life Balance immediately caught my attention as that is something I do not do well. And I can relate to experiencing some age bias at my job. Thankfully, not to the degree you did and there are other coworkers who more than balance it out. Good luck on your journey and thank you for sharing yourself with all here.

Actually, my hematologist is one of the top researchers of MPGN and its treatment. This is the treatment of choice. I did not do well on the immunotherapy. In fact got worse.
