Hi, This is my first time on any site like this so this seems a little wierd but I feel like I need support from others that can understand what I am dealing with. I am a 46 year old active male that was just been diagnosed with end stage kidney failure. I have been on in center hemo dialysis for 8 weeks. I have a chest cath for an access and need to get that changed soon. But that is another story.... On treatment days, after 4 hours in center, I feel washed out. I can't sit around and watch any more tv. I also have trouble sleeping. On non treatment days, I feel real good. I go walking, I go to work, I do things that I did prior to dialysis. But treatment days really get the best of me. Does anyone have any suggestions for things to do after dialysis? I don't have much energy to do anything but when I just sit around, I go nuts. I feel my brain shriveling up from lack of use. Any insight would be great.
