When people ask me how I’m doing, I say that I’m doing ok. And sometimes I really am. The problem is that when you’re someone like me, someone who lives with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), you’re basically ok until suddenly you’re not. Let me explain. OCD is unpredictable.

If you're one of the more than 20 million Americans who suffer from chronic kidney disease (CKD), your doctor has probably told you there isn't much they can do for you. Mainstream medicine doesn't have a cure for CKD. What they do have is a lot of drugs to treat the symptoms of it.
