The ins and outs of our medical decisions
Peter A. Ubel M.D.
So you're not a "10" in every which way. But you're probably pretty spectacular in some way, and definitely good enough in most areas of life. If ever there were a time to stop beating yourself up for being human, it is now.

In Critical Decisions, I write about controversies and challenges that arise in medical decision making, from the bedside to the boardroom. I weave together stories from "the trenches" with reflections on the ethics and the psychology of decision making when our health is at stake. Of note: when I write about patients in these posts, I use pseudonyms unless indicated, and add or subtract details to protect people's identities.
