To Those Who Think CKD And Dialysis Patients Can’t Be ‘That Sick:’ You Are Wrong! February 08, 2016
It is not always easy in the society we live in to prioritize taking care of yourself, especially for Chronic Kidney Disease and Dialysis patients. How many times have you been told that you do not look sick, or that Dialysis must be going well? What's more, family and friends may cause you to feel guilty for canceling plans at the last minute because you are not feeling well - telling you to "suck it up." Others may go as far as accusing you of faking or being overly dramatic about your health symptoms. Well, you are not alone. The Chronic Kidney Disease Community must stand together to stop the "health shaming" which happens every day to Chronic Kidney Disease, Dialysis, Kidney Transplant, Diabetes, and High Blood Pressure patients.
I agree, the Dialysis Nurse was wrong with what she has suggested. I can only imagine what it must be like living with kidney disease or any other type of disease. The only issue I have is reading about complaints from patients being frustrated at being kept waiting for Doctors appointments. Perhaps that could be perceived as being "an entitlement".

parkerdivine: I am so glad you are here. I am not on the internet that much anymore, but I would like to stop by almost daily for a few minutes.
