Everyone involved with dialysis patients knows that the treatment can be very stressful, for some more than others. Many patients have difficulty in adapting to their new way of life. There are the often unspoken fears regarding earning capacity, length of artificially prolonged life and the uncertainties of waiting for a transplant kidney.
