I am not the same person I was before. Years ago I was frantically scrambling for my life in a blind panic because I was near death/dying, until I realized just how bad my kidneys really were. The strictest of renal diets, and a complete lifestyle change to compensate for my weakness are making me the person I am today. There has been so much blood over the years, and now I am left to ask:
Is it damaged kidneys or kidney cancer?
Is it because I abused Ibuprofen for years or because I depended on tainted Ranitidine for acid reflux for years? Either way, score one for big pharmaceutical companies.
As I am needing to find out these answers, covid 19 happens. So, I put these concerns aside and wait until covid 19 is no longer a threat. Why wait? Because covid 19 can kill high risk people like me who have bad kidneys which are constantly threatening to shut down.
