A humorous look at the issues faced by dialysis patients. Dialysis is the most prominent treatment for people with kidney failure, not a subject one would normally associate with humor. But between side effects like cramping that can lead to embarrassing social situations; the use of needles that look like props from a Friday the 13th movie; ridiculous dietary restrictions that make you howl at the moon every time a pizza ad comes on TV; overbearing doctors with the social skills of someone raised by wolves; and many other life and work situations, the author finds plenty to laugh about by keeping the right perspective.
