The following patient clinically diagnoses himself with hyperthyroidism so I spoke with him about adjusting and the signs and symptoms required to manage this. I had to prepare him for “the talk” with his doctor who would poo-poo then accuse him of buying “magic beans” and possibly giving his children’s father cancer. Sigh.
If I am an investigator with PhD candidates, I am given money. I need to use the money. Why not use it trying to make myself in an area of science that others aren’t that interested in so I can carve out a niche? Tenure. Eminence. Publications. And the band plays on.
