When I was diagnosed a few years ago, all I could think of was that I’d have to go on dialysis. My dad has PKD and he’s on dialysis. My doctor told me if my dad is on dialysis 9 times out of 10, I’ll have to do the same. I wish a cure could be found for this horrible disease. So many people don’t know about PKD, or they think you could’ve prevented it. I always have to explain to people that it’s hereditary. I wish I could go on disability because sometimes the pain is unbearable, and I have severe migraines because of the disease.
