I find it rather complicated to understand what i need to eat, drink and do ... some days i feel so tired, but continue to work as i need the income to live PIP applied for but another 9 weeks .. just be nice to talk to someone

    Hello @trevayne

    Welcome to Scope's forum. It is great to see you have joined us. I am sorry to hear you are experiencing such a tough time. Are you able to talk with a hospital consultant about what to eat, drink and do? Unfortunately, we are not able to provide medical advice but the healthcare team looking after you will be able to! We can certainly provide a listening ear and a supportive and friendly community  <3

    A warm welcome to the community from me too @trevayne :) How has your week been so far? 

    I'm sorry to hear about your kidney failure. As L_Volunteer has said, it would be worth getting in touch with your medical team to ask any questions you might have around what you can eat, drink, and do. Do you feel able to get in touch with them? 

    I look forward to seeing you around on the community. You're welcome to chat about anything that interests you, so please do get stuck in whenever you feel ready.
