I am a 58 year old man, married with two children. I operated a children a summer camp for over 25 years. I then sold the camp and entered a career in real estate. I have had auto immune issues and the meds I took damaged my kidneys. They were at 30%. but in 2020 January I became sick with what the doctors thought was Covid. After two weeks i recovered however my kidney function dropped from 28% to 15% to 10% over a few months. I became very sick and was placed on dialysis. Since then I am constantly tired and have trouble me walking. My family is stressed, my work is in trouble and I have been depressed. I was physically active prior to dialysis and now I cannot walk a block. I am hoping this site can help.
