10 Things Dialysis Patients Don't Know That They Should Know
Actually! This Blog Post is targeting Dialysis Patients who dare to, (not just dream of a cure), but for those who are willing to Advocate, Fight and Seek Out a CURE or Cures that will end their Pain and Suffering for the rest of their lives, thus allowing them to die naturally instead of something as unnatural as having End Stage Renal Failure and needing a machine or a kidney from a cadaver, (not to live); but to just survive.
For everyone else, you can either choose to be educated about the fact surrounding your illness and the industry that is responsible for treating it; or, you can just close your browser and tune this Actual and Factual Information out.
1. The Dialysis Industry does not want you to even think that you can be cured, because if you start doing that and that excitement, enthusiasm and energy is transferred to other patients who never even considered the possibility, this would be disastrous to this industry's Business Model and Profit Structure.
2. The Dialysis Industry is built in such a way that the sicker you are; the more money they make.
3. Instilling in Patients Helplessness, Hopelessness and a Total Unending Dependency on the Dialysis Industry and the Kidney Transplantation Industry is built into the Systematic Training of each and every employee on every level from the Nephrologists down to the Dialysis Technicians who put you on and take you off, (hopefully very carefully and safely); the machine.
4. Dialysis Center Managers, Social Workers, Dietitians and Technicians, receive Company Bonuses including Prizes, Awards, Recognition, Promotions, Trips and Cash for Manipulating Patients into accepting things that they may not want or need to survive-Things like: Unnecessary Access Surgeries, Unnecessary and Toxic Pharmaceuticals whose Side Effects are worse than the conditions that they are supposedly created to correct, Referrals to Specialists (in and out of Nephrology), and other excesses in Dialysis Products and Services,for the primary purpose of generating more Profits for the Center and the Corporation that owns the Center.
5. If you are so inclined to dreaming about the day that you get your life back as the result of a CURE, or you Demand that Nothing Be Done To Your Body Against Your Will- YOU will be labeled as an "Outcast" with Defamatory Titles such as: "Trouble Maker", "Crazy", "Ignorant About The Nature of Your Illness" and most famously: "Non Compliant" or "Disruptive". Note: the latter is reserved for those who Actively Refuse certain Surgeries and Medications or other Procedures that the patient themselves feel is more harmful to their bodies than the conditions that they are told they will correct.
6. Once you are labeled with any of the Character Assassinations above; you are subject to Corporal Punishment up to and including the Discontinuance of Life Sustaining Treatment, (which according to the U.S. Government; these Dialysis Centers and Dialysis Corporations have a Legal Right to do). In other words, if you do not accept every Product, Service or Treatment that they Prescribe for you or agree with EVERYTHING they do or say-They have the Legal Right to (Let You Die), by completely and totally cutting you off from the treatment that assists in your survival. Note: The Government Entity that Approves of and Condones these types of actions against dialysis patients who realize that they still have Legal Rights as Human Beings under the U.S. Constitution is the CMMS. You probably know them as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
7. This Business Model is not based on (Just) keeping you alive. This business is based on Capitalizing, (For Profit); on Our Pain, Our Fear, Our Suffering and Our Natural Fear as Human Beings of Dying-Not on Empathy, Concern or Individualized Treatments that best suit the Individual Characteristics and Lifestyle of its Customers, "Patients".
It's One Size Fits All.
8. There are currently many organizations and people who you will not hear about from the staff at your dialysis center, (because that is not a part of their training), who are Actively Involved in Producing Safe, Effective and Affordable Cures for End Stage Renal Failure but; you will never hear about them unless you join with others to do the work and research necessary to allow the people who are working on these cures to continue without being Bought or Intimidated to the point where the risks outweigh the benefits for those who seriously want to end the pain and suffering that End Stage Renal Failure creates in the lives of millions of people everyday.
9. You need to know that the reason you hear about Human Trials and Potential Cures for Cancer, Aids, Diabetes and other diseases that like Kidney Failure, were once considered "Incurable" is no accident. Its the Corporate Doctors, Lawyers and Lobbyist who Manipulate our Government to do its bidding so they can continue to protect their Power, Greed, and Insatiable Thirst for Constantly Increasing Profits, no matter how many People Suffer for the rest of their lives or Die because of this, and other very Painful and Deadly Diseases.
10. You need to know that unless and until, "We The People", (Because Patients Are People Too), and those of us who are Americans are also Citizens of the United States of America, who have certain unalienable Rights. Until WE, (Not Somebody Else); Stands Up, Speaks Out and Demands that this Industry Implements Reforms that Balance Concern for Patients with Maximizing Profits-These Deplorable and Inhumane Conditions that exist within this industry that allows people to be treated like Cattle instead Thinking, Feeling and Hurting Human beings will remain in place.Because, POWER Concedes Nothing Without A Fight
Well there you have it: 10 Things Dialysis Patients Should Know That They Don't Know.
I hope that if you already know these things that you will act on them to alert The Powers That Be to the fact that this industry is literally "Getting Away With Murder" and that you want it to STOP Immediately, and that you also want all Potential Cures Released for Human Trials Immediately.
Until we get together and Organize, then it will be every Man, Woman and Child for themselves against this industry. And on an Individual Basis, we can't do anything to bring down this GIANT.
But together we can do Anything!
