Nov 25, 2016 · Changes after Transplant in Transplants

This is such a great topic. I am so glad that this has been brought to the table for discussion.
My kidney transplant was june 1, 2010. I was 47 and had an amazing career in court reporting so i was determined to get this transplant and move right back into my workaholic life full steam ahead.
It took me a couple years to even slow down enough to notice the physical and emotional changes that were happening to me because, honesty, I needed to keep working until I turned 62.
Well, needless to say, last yesr I had to acknowledge my inability to maintain this pace of life even after reducing my job responsibilities as much as possible.
I certainly have noticed a need for peace and a joy for nature and mother earth. The noise and hustle and bustle of life overwhelm me.
I am much more empathetic to others and their suffering and can almost feel their pain.
I find joy in listening to the birds and the sound of the ocean waves as i stroll our beautiful coast with my beloved Maltese Sydney or taking a leisurely hike up to a beautiful waterfall.
My body has succumbed to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue and tinnitus after having my childhood asthma reactivate, but I am learning to create a more peaceful loving environment to surround myself in so that I can learn to live a long peaceful life on this earthly journey.
My prayer is that all my fellow transplant recipients find your oneness within yourself and have peace and contentment!!
Happy Holidays to All!!

So glad you were able to get some hiking in. That is awesome!
I, too, must admit I like to feel I am in control. I was a court reporter for 26 years until retiring last year. I am still clinging to the hope that i will be able to work some but haven’t made it there yet.
Anyway, it does sound quite suspicious.
Also, i read that some women actually develop adult onset asthma later in life, too.
Best of luck and love that we can share with each other and find a common ground with someone that truly understands.
