If you know me, you know I have something called polycystic kidney disease (PKD). I was lucky enough to find out on my 20th birthday. Yes, I said lucky. Sure, no one wants to hear they have a disease where cysts grow on their kidneys (sometimes other organs), you have a susceptibility to kidney stones, you will get high blood pressure, eventually the PKD will lead to kidney failure and dialysis, and with a little prayer and luck, a kidney transplant, at which point you will be on a plethora of less than desirable medications that while have many side effects will keep you alive. Nope, no one wants to hear that….
