So my last post stimulated some interesting discussion amongst friends and colleagues. Some applauded the late night supplement “smack down,” and others felt it was too harsh. Still others who don’t read my blog regularly complained that it was unfair to pick on the supplement industry without also pointing out the flaws of Big Pharma. Well, here’s to equal opportunity smack downs – where things “applied directly to the forehead” are as fair game as anti-psychotics, IT mishaps, healthcare professional SNAFUs, and misguided policies resulting in unanticipated harm to patients.
But let’s not forget the happy stories, the unlikely triumphs, and the snatching of victory from the jaws of defeat. We can laugh at ourselves, cry with our friends, and mourn the loss of the lonely. Medicine is full of a broad array of emotions and perspectives, captured here for you in this blog.
