I don’t think anybody grows up saying ‘I want to be a pain doctor.’ I doubt many go to medical school with the goal of spending their careers sitting in front of people each day who suffer from chronic pain. Yet, somehow, I wandered upon that journey, presumably willfully. Why would I do that? Sometimes I wonder that myself.
