Profit Motives And Politics Destroy The Middle Ground For Dialysis Patients
For people suffering as a result of Kidney Failure It's One Extreme to Another, with only one way out-A Cure.......
Many people ask me why I decided to embark on this journey of discovery about the dialysis industry and why I continue to insist on looking for a cure that this industry insist does not exist.
I do it for 3, (what I consider to be very important, logical and ethical reasons):
1. I am tired of all the pain and suffering that I experience on a daily basis as a result of this disease (in and of itself), and the pain and suffering that an industry unnecessarily inflicts upon me and others simply for the sake of PROFITS.
2. Because Survival is a very Natural and Strong Instinct built into each and every Human Being who is normal,(even dialysis patients).
3. Because any industry that systematically robs sick people, (who are already suffering as a result of a very painful and debilitating disease), of any hope for a healthy and happy tomorrow through a cure just so they continue to keep them enslaved using their illnesses as leverage and power over them, needs to be under constant and intensive scrutiny, in an attempt to keep them as honest as possible; because they literally have thousands of patient's lives in their hands.
Dialysis Patients are at the mercy of "For Profit Corporations" that could care less about how much pain and suffering they inflict upon patients as long as they continue to increase their bottom lines and pass along these profits to their stock holders in the form of dividends.
This is what most Major Corporations in America and around the globe do.
They are not concerned with the consequences of their actions to individuals.
They are mainly, (and in far too many cases, only), concerned with how much money they can make from the sale of their products and or services.
This is why the dialysis industry HATES patients who display any sign of hope for a cure, asks questions or challenges their medical assumptions in reference to their bodies which the creator gave them.
The fact of the matter is they are terrified by the positive effects that Pro-Active Patients may have on other patients.
As a result, they consider this type of patient to be dangerous because they might give other patients hope for a life without the need for dialysis or a transplant.
And why are pro-active patients such a pain in the ass for this industry? Because if enough patients get the same kind of hope at the same time, that would cause a Paradigm Shift that would expedite a cure for kidney failure which would make their products and services obsolete.
This is why the dialysis industry has a Systematic Indoctrination Process built into each and every employee's training program, so that their employees will not allow patients to have any hope for a life without dialysis or a transplant as the result of a cure.
Recently, I reaffirmed my commitment to find a cure for kidney failure and to put forth even more effort to reform the dialysis industry in a way that forces them to focus on patients and not just profits.
This was never more clearer for me when as a result of Political Ideology, the United States Government was shut down for 16 days, causing billons of dollars in losses and thousands of jobs.
One of the potentially disastrous effects of this shutdown and the shutdowns that are being planned for the very near future, (like approximately 3 months from now) would be the complete termination of dialysis treatments for thousands of dialysis patients.
And in this Political Environment of hatred and carelessness under which we are all living now in the U.S., the possibility of dialysis patients not getting any treatment at all is a very real possibility.
So as dialysis patients, (because of our illness), we are living a life that has no middle ground.
we are either over treated for profit or in danger of not receiving any treatment at all.
And this is just not the result of the Government Shutdown, because these are the same types of conditions that we as dialysis patient face all the time If and when we decide to refuse a particular Pharmaceutical, Surgery or Procedure that we consider to be Too Painful, Unsafe or unnecessary for the sustainment of life.
The Dialysis Industry has a legal right to sentence a patient to death by refusing to treat them at all, because they simply make a decision about what they want or do not want to be done to their bodies.
Now that is a real "Death Panel".
My whole point here is that being on and remaining on dialysis is far too dangerous and painful to not consider the possibility of advocating for Dialysis Industry Reform that is Patient Centered instead of Profit Centered and for the release of all Potential Cures for Human Trials.
For all who agree, please become an Activist for the Cause to Find a Cure for Kidney Failure.
These 2 steps are the only hope that we have for a chance to be free.
Because, until these 2 goals become a reality through the Combined Efforts of Patients, there will continue to be no middle ground for dialysis patients in America and around the world.
We are either going to have to accept everything or nothing to sustain our lives; and I find something very troubling about this.
If you see something wrong with this, then please come and join our cause by first signing the petition below, and then educating yourself and others to the dark realities that we face as a result of our illnesse and the industry that has replaced Compassionate Medical Treatment with Corporate Enslavement.
Attention Dialysis Patients: If you don't like what you see, feel or are experiencing at the hands of this Greedy Corporate Entity, please do your part to alert the "Powers That Be" to the fact that there is a serious problem with this industry, and how it treats its Cattle, (Patients).
If you are a dialysis patient or the loved one of a dialysis patient, you are part of one of the most profitable rackets in the U.S. Only thing is, you don't profit or benefit.....They do!
