Okay you all, techs and nurses, listen up.
I did not come to dialysis today to make your life difficult.
I cannot help it if the machine clotted tonight and you had to change the lines and dialyzer. It is not like I brought thick blood with me and poured it into the tubes just to make you work harder.  I also did not jerk around with the machine for a half an hour, before deciding what to do about it. You did that!  Now we are both late! 
I also cannot help it if you are wearing hot scrubs today while I sit for four hours freezing to death in a very cold room and I complain loudly about it.
I would love to trade places with you.
I did not plan to have kidney failure, so do not treat me like I am an inconvenience to you.  Dialysis is very inconvenient for my life and I do not want to be treated like a stupid three year old. I will try to treat you with every courtesy. 
Treat me like you like me.

Your patient

nice big stick

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain.

Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.

And if you would have administered the Heparin correctly in the first place I wouldn't have clotted.
