I’d be perfect if not for two missing kidneys.
Hi, I’m Greg Collette and I write the BigDandMe blog, about living with dialysis from the recipients’ viewpoint - yours and mine. I have been on BigD for 17 years, off and on, and I’ve learned that regardless of changes in technologies or practices there are some fundamental actions that anyone can take to live well on the BigD.
I started this BigDandMe blog on Easter Monday, 2009, to help other normal people whose kidneys have let them down (“kidney failure” is so judgmental!) deal with the daunting prospect of dialysis and transplant.
If you have just joined the BigD club, there’s much you’ll want to know: what to expect, how to stay healthy, actions to take to win back your life, what’s happening in the world of dialysis and kidney transplants, and much more.
So checkout BigDandMe: there’s a new post every fortnight.
In the other part of my life I’ve had my own business for 23 years, working first as a technical writer, then as a knowledge and business process management consultant. I’ve had two transplants, and I returned to the BigD when my last transplant failed in November 2008.
I dialyse at Diaverum at Diamond Valley in Melbourne, Australia.
