Slightly off topic but I was trying to move in to HUD housing for disable.  Was approved except form sent to doctor (Personal Care Doc).  He waited a week then called me and ask "For what reason do you consider yourself disable and qualifying for this type of housing?" I took it to social working at center, she paid him a visit and I had the signed form 30 minutes later.  Moving in to my new apartment tonight!!!!!! Looking for new doctor now.

Don't you wish doctors could live with everything you have for just 24 hours.  Might change there mind a little.  Anyways really glad you got it taken care of.

Hurray  :bandance; moving in tomorrow.  $300 cheaper than where I am now. I would love to have doc deal with my issues for 24 hrs.  I would also love to dialysis center employees sit for 4 and 1/2 hrs in the chair just once to see what it is like.

I always wish I had the power of transference.  The doctor looks over my labs and says, "Well, I don't know why you feel so awful and are having so many problems.  Your labs look fine."

I would take his hand, close my eyes and transfer everything I was experiencing at that moment into his body for him to enjoy.

Dizziness would flood his head.  He'd feel as though he'd want to vomit.  He's immediately need to use one of the treatment chairs to lie down.  He'd be forced to take the next three weeks off just to catch up on rest.  Pounds would melt off because he had no appetite or couldn't keep anything down.

After I felt he'd suffered enough, I'd take his hand again and remove my health issues.

Until we have the power to do that, doctors will never change.

My oncologist (for multiple myeloma) was talking about getting into 'remission' and whether it was likely or not.  I said - but if I don't get into remission then I can't get on the transplant list!  He then said "oh, but you're quite happy with the dialysis aren't you?"  I nearly fell off my chair.  I realised then that I need to be careful how I phrase what I say about the big D.  Yes, it works well for me, and yes, PD is fantastic, but that doesn't mean I'd CHOOSE it!  Argghhh.
