TODAY MARKS MY ONE year liver anniversary. I remember this day like it was yesterday.i just allway thought I was going to live my whole life with citrullinemia. I never imagned that my citrullinemia would make me so sick to the point of liver diease and every 6 days in the hospital with high ammonia unable to be kept stable at home on a low protein diet and medicine. I am thankful for the selshish decision of the donor family made at the time of their loss. I have witten to them but I got no is weird cause I am use to being sick and in the hospital not well and at home. I am still not willing at all to eat meat or fish cause it naseutes me and I have nothing but bad memories from it. I will it cheese and eggs cause I use to eat a small bite of each. when I eat high protein foods I am still even after a year afraid I will get sick.i tire easly and it frustrates me. marta
