A few weeks ago i was surprised to discover that the mission of doctors is not to cure disease, but to make patients comfortable. That doubtless accounts for why so many people are hooked on pain kllers. I just learned, for example, that fentanyl is an FDA approved drug prescribed for cancer
On the other hand, an insensitive person is not someone who feels no pain, but a person who does not feel other people’s pain. What a strange world! Has the whole medical profession been taken over by touchy/feely people whose most precious product is a diagnosis (because that is what determines the income stream)?
