2 Jokes My Nephrologists Told Me That Are Not Really Jokes At All
ON this past Thursday I had my monthly "Care Plan Meeting", (Sales Meeting).
And this is only the second time that I've seen this particular Nephrologist because my regular doctor is out sick and will be for quite some time.
I was so glad that my Home Dialysis Partner was present at the time that he told these jokes because sometimes I have to remind her of the true nature of the Dialysis Industry and what I, and millions of other dialysis patients are up against as we try to live or die with this horrible disease, and the even more horrible industry that the U.S. Government has allowed to treat us anyway that they want to at a profit.
But if you are a dialysis patient who is not actively involved in putting an end to your pain and suffering by way of research, knowledge and risk taking in search of a cure, then these jokes will be just that to you-jokes.
This also will apply to how serious you take this blog and it's mission if you are not serious about finding a cure.
However, if you and I are cut from the same cloth and you are determined to die trying to find a cure to put an end to the pain and suffering caused by End Stage Renal Failure and the Multi-Billion Dollar Industry that makes the disease worst than it has to be due to greed, then you will know that these were very true words spoken in the form of a joke.
Joke 1: A Dialysis Patient dies in the hospital and his family comes looking for information about their loved one.
So since they had heard that their loved one had indeed passed, they went directly to the morgue in the hospital to find out how and why their loved one died.
Once they reached the morgue they did not see their loved one-Instead, there was a sign on the slab where their loved one had previously be placed.
Instead of finding the Dearly Departed, they found a sign that said: "Gone To Dialysis".
Joke 2- came as a result of my expression of hatred for dialysis and my intentions to be cured one day in spite of what the Dialysis Industry and the Mainstream Medical Community continues to preach as a Medical Impossibility".
When I made this statement, the doctor laughed and said" Oh no!" "You've got to keep doing dialysis because I have a Certain Standard of Living that I have to maintain.
Now here's the reason why I told you this story:
If you thought that these were just jokes, then you must be so comfortable with the idea of remaining on dialysis for the rest of your life with no end in sight, except with the possibility of transplanting another human being's organ, (most likely dead).
If you thought that these 2 jokes were not jokes and that they actually represent the true nature of the Dialysis Industry, then you are most likely serious about find a cure and being free in your lifetime.
If you fall into category #2, you belong here and you should participate in the dialogue and master mind activities that this blog was create for; so that we as dialysis patients can work and search for a cure together, because their is strength and synergy in numbers.
If this is you, please contribute your comments, ideas and suggestions for those of us who are suffering from this very painful and deadly disease.
Please! No one dialysis patient can motivate those who are in a position to bring about cures for us to do so.
Please sign the petition below and encourage others who feel the same way to do the same.
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!
