    What help is there for working dialysis patients? 24th Jun 19 at 12:24 PM
    A mate has recently started dialysis. Hes always worked, is a good father of 6, but these last few years have been a nightmare for him. Firstly a breakup, so he had to move out, and then his kidneys packed up. Recently hes had to move in with his mom, and now his car has packed up.

    His employer has moved his shift to accommodate dialysis, but you can see hes knackered, and very unhappy.

    Ive recently had a mate hang himself due to his own situation, so Id like to try to find out what help is actually out there for people in this situation, as hes a proud man, and he wont do it himself.

    If you are not part of the solution then you must be part of the problem.
