But have you ever had someone stop you and say, "I'm glad you ask. Oh my gosh, I've had so many problems.........blah blah blah." Did you really mean to ask that? Or did you simply use "how are you" as a standard greeting?
A good test of this is to go to a state convention. I just returned from the annual big brand state convention in Tourist Town, Texas, having stayed indoors for 3 days at Shady Pines Resort . . . sort of prepares me for my future assisted living days, but oh well, it was as nice a hotel "resort" as there is around anywhere.
This place was so spread out, it reminded me of the Greater Houston Area where you can drive for 2 hours and still be in Houston! I walked from one end to the other. And with Stage 5 Kidney Failure, this is no minor feat!
"Oh, how am I doing?" "I'm glad you asked!" (Now is the time you can safely click to another screen because I'm about to tell you. But when you're face-to-face with someone, you have to -- albeit painful -- listen to their crap.)
OK, so here's my list, directly from the internet (so you know it's true!):
So, now you know. And I feel much better now that I've vented. Just you wait 'til I get a new kidney . . . I'll be a new man! Fiddle-dee-dee . . . tomorrow IS another day!
Most everyone is born with two, but you only need one. I am seeking a live donor. If you would consider donating one kidney, please call Methodist Hospital at 713-441-5458 and tell them that you're interested in donating a kidney to Sam Ferreri. They can advise you of the risks and benefits to you. You can read more at my old blog, www.MyKidneysSuck.com, but please do NOT call St. Luke's Hospital (ewww). I'm switched to Methodist. Thanks, and God Bless you.
