I Want to Donate a Kidney.

As the title suggests, I've been considering donating a kidney or part of my liver. Considering I was once an alcoholic I don't know if they'd take anything of mine.

Please tell me why this is a good idea/Why I shouldn't do this.

One of my best friends donated half of her liver to her boyfriend..
She saved his life.

She did it because he was going to die.
I don't know if she would have done it for a random person though but you never know.

Is an organ donor.

You'd have to be a juicer for a long time to ruin your kidneys or liver. They'll take your donation.

Well I'll take it. I can think of a few good uses for a kidney

I know you're Canadian, but it's a start.

Thanks Komp, I guess one of my main issues is just how much it would impact my life in the later years.

I think my first step will be contacting the right people here in Canada and starting the process of it all. They stress a donor can back away at anytime during the process but I feel that would weigh heavy on my conscience, but I would at least like to see if I'm able to be a candidate.

Honestly, I really don't have a specific thing that I can point to that I can say made me want to maybe do something like this.

- I have something that could potentially be life saving
- I can still live if I give it away
- I live in a 1st world country where I am able to do this and be looked after (Canada)

But.

- Am I doing this as a way to do good in a life I feel I haven't done good in? Maybe?
- Would I regret giving something up like this years down the road? Possibly.
- Do I feel like this is a decision I need to fully comprehend and make the decision myself? Yes.


It's a lot to take on, a lot to think about, and a lot to plan for. I guess just thinking about it is causing me to do a bit of soul searching at the moment. And I may find that I can/should help others in different ways before donating an organ. But then again, I can potentially donate an organ AND find other ways to be meaningful to the community.


Gives me something to contemplate in the morning over coffee.

I dont think you should do it right now. You should wait.

You are recently sober right?
Wait at least a couple years until you start thinking straight and can properly handle your emotions and thoughts n stuff.
This whole thing just seems like a very reactionary thing. Want to contribute something good to the world after doing nothing but drugs for years?

Why dont you try less intense ways of being a good person first. Donate your time to a shelter or orphanage or something.

Certainly right. 2 years 8 months for alcohol and 8 months for every other drug.

I do think you are right about needing to wait, right now I am just trying to weigh all my options. And it's good to have others opinions when thinking of things like this.

I found my first year at the beginning.. I wanted to help everyone and I was on like a super natural pink cloud high. It also helped me not think about the fact that I also had to help myself..

Lol if you read back in my thread where I went to detox.. I kinda sound like a crazy person. I was up super high as a kite loving everything and everyone at points.. Wanting to save everyone.. Here.

But then you have to remember to save yourself.

Don't forget to work in you.

You need a kidney and liver too.

So far, thanks everyone!

I'm giving blood tomorrow (not the first time, just had put it off while using drugs) and am talking to some friends who donate their time to some organizations around the city. I will talk with the blood donation clinic about possible steps for live donation and see if they can tell me anything about the whole ordeal.
