Home alone

My parents have gone on a month and a half long trip to the US. My brother Karan is graduating around now and they have gone for that followed by holidays at a few cities in the US and Canada.

So, that leaves me at home, alone. Well, at 25, you might ask, what's the big deal? Well, nothing much, I say. Just that this is the longest I will be staying alone at home. My parents have gone for short 2-3 day trips and recently a week long trip to Dubai. Never this long. So, its just that I am not used to it, that's all.

For instance, I am at home and some bill arrives in the post. For an instant I think my dad will take care of it. Only, I have to take care of it.

When you're home alone, there are some very unexpected things you need to take care of. For instance, yesterday, two servants in my house fought which ended in one of them 'firing' the other. Who was she, I wondered to 'fire' the other. In such matters, logic finds no place. Stranger things have happened!

Staying alone has its share of advantages too. You are generally the king of the castle. You do as you wish. You eat what you want. You come when you wish and you go when you like. Nobody asks you a question. You have no care in the world!

I do wonder though how long this will last? One week? Two? More? I doubt it. Very soon, I am fairly certain, I will miss being in the company of my parents. I will miss things simply getting 'done'. I will miss seeing only the show on the stage without knowing what's happening backstage! I will have to pretty much manage the backstage!

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.
