I like the look I get from people when I tell them that I haven't peed since 2007.  Even medical professionals that know I'm on dialysis give me that questioning look

I've known there are times when you just have to wait and 'hold it', but this is stretching it a bit!

What's the most ignorant thing someone has said to you regarding dialysis?

My 'winner' was: "Boy, I wish someone would make ME sit in a recliner for four hours!"

If only they knew. Four hours in that chair is torture for me. Until they have experienced it, they will never know what it is like to have kidney failure.

I had a nurse, who's since moved on to another job, who decided that we had it pretty good in those chairs, until she decided to try it out herself.  She didn't last 20 minutes.  Mind you, we don't have the lazy-boy type chairs.  What we have are glorified stretchers with arm rests, head rests, and foot rests.  We can move it up and down, and lay it back, along with raising and lowering the head and feet.  It also has an emergency button on the bottom that a nurse can hit with her foot that puts the head down and the feet up.  It's quite an experience when they hit that button

Actually, I doubt they could take just sitting in the worn out chairs for four hours, much less with a couple of inch long prongs shoved in the arm, Tape everywhere, and every time you move the machine rings its bell.
