Gail Rae-Garwood

Chronic Kidney Disease, Diabetes

Ms. Rae-Garwood’s writing started out as a means to an end for a single parent with two children and a need for more income than her career as a NYC teacher afforded. Gail retired from both college teaching and acting – after a bit of soul searching about where her CKD limited energy would be best spent – early in 2013. Since her diagnose, Ms. Rae-Garwood writes most often about Chronic Kidney Disease, although she does write fiction and non-fiction. She has a three time award winning weekly blog about this topic at and social media accounts as @SlowItDownCKD.
