I am really sorry for the late notice about this webinar and telephone conference but if you can make it tomorrow, this should be worth it. Dialysis Patient Citizens (DPC), of which I am a member, has an Education Center which is hosting a webinar in collaboration with the American Psychological Association (APA) on the the importance of good mental health on our overall health.
I have written several times about “Dialysis and Depression” which lead me to create this blog. It seems to be common that we dialysis patients go through the typical stages of Grief before we come to a level of acceptance with our chronic disease. We are somewhat unique in that regard because if it was cancer, we would either get it into submission or die from it. However, fate has been kind to us and we have dialysis which allows us to continue living somewhat indefinitely. But, in the course of that life, we must deal with the fact that we are but a couple steps away from death (another subject I’ve written about several times).
So, as DPC describes it, this webinar is about “Living Well on Dialysis”. That certainly a topic we can all relate to. If you can make it Sunday, September 7, 2014 at 4pm ET, 3pm CT, 2pm MT and 1pm PT, here is a link to the call information…
