Being a physician is a blessing in many ways, and I won’t bore you with the details. Getting to this point was a lot of work, but it’s been (overall) worth the effort.
And, it’s a mild curse. A close relative says “I have a headache” and it’s twenty questions with a lot of exam thrown, in, and a modest desire to get a CT. Yeah, it’s a non-focal exam, and no it’s not a sudden-onset headache, but if anyone presented to my ED with this headache they’d get a CT before they left.
I expect it’s “just a headache”.
But, I’ve seen too much.
And I know too much.
