Delete Facebook? The psychology of why it’s not that easy

Why it’s so hard for doctors to understand your pain

Why is it so hard for doctors to understand your pain?

We’re all human beings, but we’re not all alike. Each person experiences pain differently, from an emotional perspective as well as a physical one, and responds to pain differently.

Transitioning into your new Mexican life
