Nothing In Life Worth Doing Is Easy

What I learned throughout the process of being tested and cleared to donate is that I would likely be in the worst pain I have ever experienced, that I was giving up something that my body did not understand nor want to give up, and that not only would it be physically demanding but would likely take a toll on me emotionally as well. What I can say is that when I donated my kidney, I felt like I truly had not given up anything and instead, I gained everything.
