I have a teach who's been working down on my floor, lets call her June.  She's just really obnoxious and lazy, very lax about things and is always talking about her sex life and her man.  A few weeks ago she asked me how my ex was in bed............she's really into horoscopes and analyzes people all the time according to their birth sign.  Okay fine if you're into that.  I don't need you to analyze ME!
anywhoooo.......on Saturday she was helping get me off the machine.  She was complaining that her stomach hurt her so I suggested she go have some hot mint tea which we have in the waiting room area.  I don't remember exactly how it started but she made a remark like "thank God I'm not sick like you".  So I (having had enough of her BS remarks) said really loud to her "well, aren't you happy you're not like me and the rest of us here?  Good for you!" 

What should I have said???  I hate that I didn't think of something better to say to her!!!   :banghead; :banghead;

Ooooh! I would have had to fight very hard to keep myself from strangling that little F***er with my bloodlines and stabbing her in the eye with my needles. Seriously, people like that should NEVER be allowed to keep a job in the medical field. Rant and curse all you want. The bitch deserves it

What a rude b*tch. 

If she continues to be invasive with her casual comments or rude about your illness,speak to the clinical manager or
charge nurse at your unit.  You don't deserve to hear that crap.  Personality is an important part of a dialysis staff member.
She needs to be spoken to so she knows that what she is doing and saying is offensive.    :boxing;

I am sure this idiot found what she said to be helpful. I have a similar idiot at my center. She never understands the pain we go through. She thinks she has gone through more. Sometimes i wonder how these morons walk in the door. I guess they think, "Gee today seems like a good day to mess with a dialysis patient." I won't let this tech near me and just the other day made it known to the charge nurse. There must be some kind of morbid sense of humor in a person with such power over a patient.

i am a 51 year old male on dialysis for 3 years now. This is my second time. My brother donated a kidney to me about 13 years ago. I found this site on another site. I had to laugh when i saw what it was called. I hope to meet people from all over to talk about dialysis.

Having had both the worst form of diabetes, type 1, plus having been on dialysis from 1996 to 2003, I can say that since dialysis is about 10 times worse than diabetes, you can't know what someone on dialysis is going through just by having diabetes.

WOW! I feel blessed to be in a unit where we all get on well and it's like a kind of extended family and there's no bitchiness (well not to me anyway?! maybe after I've gone they make rude comments lol) or anything.

I think I would have just said something like "look this sort of stuff isn't appropriate.. if you can't say anything nice..." and yeah I'd have a word with the unit supervisor/charge nurse etc. Unbelieveable what she said. sigh!

I would wait till the next time you go there, make sure you come up with something to say, and punch her in the mouth. If she doesn't fall down, make her fall. When all is said and done, make a story about how she threatened your life and how she has control over you, and tell the police. She'll be fired and she'll be very mad.   :secret; :boxing; :boxing; >:(

How about an update of this tech. Is she fired yet?
Makes me thankful I had gone to a good unit, although I did start out with a shitty unit for a month or 2. Hated that unit and the doctor who owns it.

Coming in late on this one.  It is horrible that patients should have to endure people like that caring for them.

As a Dialysis patient you do have one weapon at your disposal: you suddenly let your bandages slip at the end of treatment and bleed all over her.  Try to get some in her eye.  Then mention the antibiotics you've been on for this terrible, itchy rash you can't seem to get rid of.

She'll never speak or come near you again.
