Well, you must excuse the pompousness but I am really thrilled!

My article, titled "Taking the Uncharted Path", got selected and published in the American Journal of Kidney Disease's (AJKD) January 2011 issue!

It all started with an email from Dr. Sidharth Sethi, Pediatric Nephrologist at AIIMS, New Delhi in July this year. He told me that AJKD was inviting "essays of fewer than 1,600 words that illustrate some facet of kidney disease through a personal story".

I then wrote this article where I described how I got on to daily nocturnal home hemodialysis. The article went through a series of edits, some suggested by the editorial team at AJKD to make it make more sense to a global audience which is unfamiliar with the Indian nephrology context.

Finally, about a couple of months later, I was told that the article was selected! And now it has finally been published!

This is the link to the pdf version of the article which actually appears in the hard copy of the journal and this is the link to the online version of the article. This is the link to the online version of the journal's January issue. My article is under the section "In a few words" towards the bottom of the page.

Hello, I'm Kamal from Hyderabad, India. I have been on dialysis for the last 13 years, six of them on PD, the rest on hemo. I have been on daily nocturnal home hemodialysis for the last four and half years. I can do pretty much everything myself. I love to travel and do short weekend trips or longer trips to places which have dialysis centers. Goa in India is a personal favorite. It is a great holiday destination and has two very good dialysis centers.
