This is your kidneys on drugs

kidney damage

I was admitted to ICU courtesy of a methamphetamine overdose which
made my creatinine levels skyrocket. There is some permanent damage to
my kidneys from my decade of drug use and my doctor says that the
damage is no joke.


I had to do a dialysis with tubes sticking out of my neck while I
was in there and had a catheter stuck inside me (a very unpleasant
sensation – trust me) and I was discharged in a week’s time. The latest
blood sample showed that my kidneys are basically alright but now my
liver is starting to fail…

…which my doctor says is no joke either.

I guess this is my cue to quit drugs. *shrugs*

It’s for you AL. :)
