Kidney Healing
Been on dialysis for the last 10 years. Home-hemo for the last 2 years. I am so tired of all of it. The Dr's, the nurses, the hospital visits, the medications, the surgeries.As futile as it may seem, please send positive energy and healing prayers my way. Please pray for my kidneys to heal.

I know how hard it is to be in your position, fathers of my 2 friends have been in dialysis for almost the same years with you. I am praying for them and I will send positive energy and a prayer for you too. Keep strong and have faith.

Please add him to your prayers-I am a prayer warrior myself and this young man needs all the help he can get from many of God's warriors..He is such a sad young man..Unsure of who he is, his sexuality, his parents..The music he listens to is all gothic and death..He needs physical friends whom he can talk with, church needs to visit him often..I am always afraid he will start cutting again and what if he goes too deep..

stones again
I have had kidney stones for quite some time now, it has effected my life and my job. Approximately 4 months ago I went through a battle with a 9mm stone that was blasted and I believe I am still passing stones today. I just started a new job and while I was at my job I used the restroom and notice my urine was bloody. I am so tired of this and need it to go away. I have watched my diet, exercise and drink plenty of water, but nothing is helping. I am asking for prayer, I can't keep this up and I am soooo tired of this. Thank you.

Asking for Prayers if you desire.
I've been ill for quite a few years. I believed I was healing and still hope I am.
Lately I've noticed a few lumps on my lower back on both sides and my left kidney is causing sharp but not very long pain/spasms.

Due to my sweet husband and family always worrying about my health, I'm not going to tell them how worried I am. Also I am frightened to go to the Doctor. This is due to have trouble finding a Doctor I trust. Maybe it is a type of white coat syndrome or more of a trust issue due to the past. I NEED a Doctor who I know cares about me healing and has a kind bedside manner.

I do not like asking for prayers. This time however I need them. I believe in Christ and the Buddha. Also in our Mother Earth. All prayers for my health would be welcome. My beliefs system is on the correct course for me. So all prayers for my health I know will be heard. It would be a comfort knowing people who do not know me care enough to pray for a person they do not know. Thank you, if it is your will to pray for me.

LVX,
Maria

Hi, My fiance has high blood pressure and she just had one of her kidneys removed 10 days ago(aug13). her doctor said the other kidney hasn't recovered so she has to do hemodialyse for 6 months or so, to help the remaining kidney recover...you can imagine we have been trough hell reading all about hemodialyse, kidney transplant etc. I'm type AB and shes O So i cant give her when it comes to it. but i'm thinking of Donating one of my kidneys to someone, so he/she can have a bit easier life. i'm hoping god blesses my fiance and everyone who is suffering from any disease.

Will remember you all in my prayers. Faith is big healer and you must have faith in yourself. Taking care of your kidneys with a good kidney diet and doctor's advice is also important. Take care

Hi, my dad's kidneys failed and he's on a waiting list for a donor. It's hard to watch him replace his blood every two days and go to work at 6AM. He can't really sleep well because of chronic pain on the left side of his body and the doctor has no idea why. I just ask that you pray for him and after joining this community, I pray for everyone who is going through similar hardships as well.

I was diagnosed with kidney failure when I was 20 years old. After two years of hemodialysis while riding my bike to my full time job, I received a cadaver transplant that lasted 20 years. I'm now a slave to peritoneal dialysis with so many physical and emotional problems attached to this drastic negative turn in health and loss of something so precious, my life has come to a screeching halt. I'm really sick and depressed, on a fixed income, isolated. I was called in for a pediatric cadaver transplant about a months ago, which I didn't get due to antibodies from the last transplant. I was devastated and sent home, back to the daily dialysis slavery. I want to be a productive, vibrant part of society again. I have zero energy due to all the blood pressure meds and everything associated with dialysis and kidney failure. I desperately need prayers/good vibes to give me at least the emotional strength to weather this daily torture until I get another kidney, which could be months/years. Thanks so much and sincere love and prayers your way as well.=)

Re: Prayer and Support Requests
Hi all, I am Michael 27 years old from Manila, Philippines as well. I have been diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy class III, a nephrotic syndrome. I had enlarged heart and water in my lungs, complications as per the doctors who checked my condition. I have gone to different doctors and they all said that it is irreversible. I asked for help because like most of you, I don't have the financial means to support my problem.

But let me inform you that there is hope. I am surviving my kidney problem. It might not be severe like other kidney patients, but for me it is all the same. To get better, one must decide and act to be better. You must be determined to do what should and should not be done for your kidney problem. I stayed out of what it not allowed for me, regular exercise and a lot of prayers. Also, we should be resourceful. Saying this, a nephrologist actually helped me who I met online. He is from China, a part of an organization that helps kidney patients. He is contacting me every time I needed his professional advice. I am forwarding my medical test to him and he interprets. He is also introducing ancient medical techniques combined with modern medicine.

I am very grateful because he has helped me a lot despite our distance. He continues to provide me with tips, articles, latest development that can help me or us with our kidney problem. I am doing better now, better than the previous months enduring the pain physically and mentally. Hope this helps. God bless us all.
