24 and I feel like my life is over.

I can definitely relate. I'm 25, and I have kidney failure and on dialysis. Usually, all the people that have this condition are really old, so support groups are usually focused on the elderly. What I do is just not think about the future too much, and take things a day at a time. I have smaller, short-term goals instead of massive long-term ones. If there's something I really want to do or work towards, I work slowly. I don't compare myself to anyone else. I don't have social media other than to keep up with relatives and close friends. It's a difficult thing to do though, especially when it seems a whole lot worse than it is since our brains are making us feel that way.
