I think the "Pill Police" deserve a special badge to honor them and their willingness  "to protect and serve" those of us who need and cherish them!

Comment by Jennie on May 20, 2013 at 12:29pm

Funny about the pill police...when I had my transplant my husband monitor my pills for the first couple of weeks...don't think I could have done it without him.

Comment by elena on May 20, 2013 at 10:57am

Ssteph is right on. When I met my husband I was already sick and he has been by my side for the last 15 years. There are definitely special men out there. Don't give up. And steph, Scott is my pill police too. I love it!!!!

Comment by Jennie on May 20, 2013 at 12:21am

Connie,  Ssteph is so right. there are great men out there who are not afraid of being there for a woman through thick and thin.  You should not hold back dating because life is too short.  I realized this when I had a kidney transplant 6 years ago.  Don't put your life on hold, live it!

 

Comment by sssteph on May 19, 2013 at 11:14pm

Hi Connie, No...finding someone to accept you is not unrealistic at all.  There are great men out there looking for someone special and as beautiful as you no matter what baggage you bring.  I met someone truly special about 9 months before I had my K/P tx.  The first night we met we bonded over a discussion about a horrible motorcycle accident he had been in and the upcoming TX I was going to be having and how life changing events can affect how you look at life. We found we had so many life views in common.  The closer we became I was very open and honest about what life could be like for me after tx and that I understood if he wanted out!  I gave him an out, but he never took it.  He has been with me every step of the way!  I call him the "pill police" because he always makes sure I take my pills on time!  I am one of the lucky ones who have not had any complications (knock on wood) since tx (almost 2 yrs post), so my post tx life is much like my life before...active, energetic with a sense of adventure.  He truly is my soul mate.  And I am as grateful for him coming into my life as I am for my donor who is now a part it!  Put yourself out there!  A special someone is waiting for you! 

Comment by Connie on May 19, 2013 at 10:50pm

Is finding someone who can love me and accept me unrealistic because of my health? I need a liver transplant and so far I have put off dating or romance in my life because what man is going to want to take on my baggage? Gets very lonely and I find myself more isolated than I want.

elena i know the feeling my own mom doesnt call no get well cards nothing ugh

Comment by Hostess Risé on December 6, 2012 at 7:23pm

Hi Elena

What are you doing to keep busy? Sometimes it hurts to think about the people who you thought y were your friends and they turn out to be selfish people.  I do believe what comes around goes around and I hope they do not experience the level of pain that you feel.

Comment by elena on October 1, 2012 at 7:49pm

Just needed to vent since nit sure my husband gets it. I have truly found out through my transplant process who my "real" friends are. So sad to me. People who I thought would be there for me not matter what have disappeared and have not even called. And some are family members. I don't expect everyone to drop everything to call all the time but nothing?? I guess this is one of life's little lessons and I will cherish the real friends that I do have.
