An ego so big it could get me killed

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years (see updates page).

Jake Sidwell (@jakesidwell):

New doctor: You’re rather articulate about your condition.

Me: Yeah. I have to be. Communicating with doctors who treat me as an unreliable witness to my own condition is a second language. It’s even harder to feign ignorance to protect an ego so big it could get me killed.

Truth burn!
