My name is Osagie. I’m a designer working with a medical manufacturing company to revamp their inhome PD machine.
As I’ve immersed myself in the lives and stories of a few PD users, I’ve caught a glimpse of the tension facing this community every day - the angst between the gritty reality of navigating life with this condition and the hope that in just a moment it can all change. This is especially pertinent because of one my friend’s dad’s is just now starting to experience his own kidney issues .
Not having kidney issues myself, I know empathy can only go so far. I’d like to hear more about the frustrations, gripes, victories, challenges, and milestones of other people who have lived with an inhome PD treatment. I know this is an obviously sensitive issue but if you’re willing to share let me know by replying to this thread. Thanks guys.
