I'm a woman in her middle ages. Not old but not too young either. But I feel discriminated against in the dialysis center I go to for being 'too young'. Even though I always make an effort to come early to start my treatment early, they always serve the older patients first, no matter how late they come.
I mean, they do prime my machine for me, but they prime an older person's machine first. And they don't even open my dressing set, I have to do that myself. But they get ready the older person's dressing set. I mean, what's the point of doing something if you're only going to do it halfway? By that I mean, if you're already done 70% of the work, why not do 100%, it's not so much of a stretch to do so, is it?
When I pointed out the discrimination, the Head Nurse lost her temper and threatened to delay my next treatment by 30 minutes regardless of what time I turned up. I think this is too much. I'm being discriminated for being one of the younger patients there.
I can't help feeling upset.
