Just as I was taking this photo, our neighbour backed down the driveway behind me! #nearlyrunover

This is the face of somebody who REALLY does not love public speaking. 😱 But, considering I left last year's conference early when I got The Call, I guess they figured they should probably ask me to come back this year and talk about it! 😂 #publicspeaking #interview #argh #nationalkidneyfederation #nkf #kidneydisease #kidneytransplant #organdonation #whenigotthecall
Not shown in this picture: Me, balancing my phone precariously on a rail, hoping it didn't fall into the water! 🙈 #prestondocks #preston #lancashire #england #uk #levels #layers #sky #clouds #houses #water #boat #blue #inthemiddle 🚤🌊
Today @fezawan and I attended a community health promotion day to encourage people to register as organ donors. While we were there, I, quite by chance, spoke to a woman who had donated her teenage son's organs after he passed away. Because their family had discussed it in advance, and knew they wanted to say yes, two people received kidney transplants, and two received corneal transplants. Organ donation really is important. 💕 @nhsorgandonor #organdonation #organtransplants #transplantation #kidneytransplant #cornealtransplant #transplantrecipient #donorfamily #letstalkaboutit #sayidonate #yesidonate #becauseofanorgandonor
I'm a summer person, but autumn is pretty photogenic, even if I'm only standing on the driveway at work. 🍂 #autumn #fall #leaves #nature #yellow #orange #red #pretty
So I think the cafe opposite my hospital has a slightly creative perspective on what constitutes acceptable breakfast food! ☕️🍪🍰🍌 #whoneedsfruit #cakeforbreakfast #giantjammydodgers #yesplease #breakfast #food #coffee
Let's just say that on Sunday night we all discovered exactly how hilarious (and exhausting!) ceildh dancing actually is! 💃🏻🕺🏻🏄🏻 #YAKG17 #friends #friendship #peersupport #youngadultkidneygroup #YAKG #kidneydisease #chronickidneydisease #kidneyfailure #kidneytransplant #dialysis #ceildh #ceildhdancing #funny #spotthewetsuit
Her problem started when she thought it was a good idea to go on a very public forum to appoint herself the Queen of Dialysis. Unfortunately, she neglected to realise that people would watch her, and that some of them might then become her friends, which in turn might then cause this to happen! 😈👸🏼💕 #YAKG17 #friends #friendship #peersupport #youngadultkidneygroup #YAKG #kidneydisease #chronickidneydisease #kidneyfailure #kidneytransplant #dialysis #prank #funny #meanfriends #butweloveher #inflatablecrown #queen #queenofdialysis #hugechildren #theballoftheball **All joking aside however, if anybody reading this has an interest in kidney disease-related issues, particularly nocturnal home haemodialysis, you should go and look for Maddy's TEDx talks on YouTube. When not wearing a sparkly inflatable crown, she's actually quite sensible.**
On Saturday night, some of my friends made a slightly strange discovery. I do not in fact really exist. I'm just some sort of weird apparition exuding a white glow!? Either that or everybody else is very impressively tanned!? 👻 #YAKG17 #friends #friendship #peersupport #youngadultkidneygroup #YAKG #kidneydisease #chronickidneydisease #kidneyfailure #kidneytransplant #dialysis #funny #invisible #ghost #tanningfail

I am so grateful that in amongst all the absolute crap the world of kidney disease has thrown at me, I have found these three. They make me laugh every day, distract me on Facebook when I'm supposed to be doing other stuff and occasionally make me want to kick them, but they also encourage me when I'm struggling, collectively know pretty much everything about kidney disease and genuinely really do "get it". Together, we do reasonably convincing impressions of Responsible, Competent, Well-Spoken Young(ish) Adult Patients. Mostly. 💕 #friendship #friends #peoplewhogetit #kidneydisease #chronickidneydisease #kidneytransplant #dialysis #wereallmadhere #goodinfluence #badinfluence #crazy #hope
