“PD offers a lot of convenience and flexibility. You only need to be careful to maintain a hygienic environment in order to prevent infections.”
-Ms Wong Rui Jun, 29
Another reason as to why my health did not deteriorate could be my positive mindset. I tend to look on the brighter side of things, because I have witnessed many other more unfortunate people whose conditions are much more serious than my own, such as those who lost their mobility or even the ability to look after themselves, whereas I can still live like an ordinary person.
Doing dialysis at home every night
The dialysis that I undergo is called peritoneal dialysis (PD). I can do it on my own at home every night, with each session only lasting about 7½ hours. PD offers a lot of convenience and flexibility. You only need to be careful to maintain a hygienic environment in order to prevent infections. Due to my illness, I had difficulty finding a job after graduating from ITE. As I have loved singing since young, I decided to perform on GeTai to earn some income. I also found a part-time sales job. My next step is taking on a scholarship offer to study for a diploma to further my career. I am also very grateful to receive financial support from NKF. They also awarded me with the Smile & Encouragement Award. A kidney transplant is of course also on my wish list.”
