As the cliche goes, “I am trying to find myself.” I’m 52 and for a large part of my life I was a caregiver to my mother who died 8 years ago. In those eight years, I was on dialysis for almost 6 of them and 3 years ago, received a kidney transplant and then 9 months after that, had a surgery to remove one of the bad kidneys.
I am now trying to figure out what I want to do with my new life. I feel like I’ve lost my sense of self. I am a creative person but have a bachelor’s degree in general business. I have always loved creative writing and actually wrote a blog regarding dialysis and the kidney transplant. After that, I got the worst case of writer’s blog and haven’t written another word. But my need to be creative has come out in other ways (crafting).
I guess I need help in some sort of direction because I feel like I’m glued to this same spot that I’ve been in for so long.
