Hi everyone. I am in end stage renal failure and have been on a transplant waiting list for 10 months. I am getting depressed and anxious -- it is killing me waiting. How does anyone deal with depression and anxiety with being on the waiting list?

Hi @MICHtom I personally never have had to be in such a situation but my cousin - who I am very close with - I can remember him as a child constantly going through dialysis. It was a lot on him. He was depressed always about it and fatigued more so on dialysis days. He did eventually get a kidney transplant and it changed his life for the better. So keep strong and the day will come.
All the best,
