Mangoes Remind Me That My Illness is a Curse

Being a person with kidney failure, we cannot have too much of anything because our kidneys cannot get rid the excess stuff and it could kill us. Just like Potassium in fruits. Most fruits and veggies have high Potassium and it could cause us hyperkalemia which may end us with a heart attack or cardiac arrest.

It is such a painful fact because this summer is the season of tropical fruits just like mangoes and avocadoes and a lot more. I would really love to overload in mango shake or anything mangoes because we have lots of mangoes, but I just can't. I'm kinda sad because of that.
