The Psychology of Pain

July 20, 2022

I comment on an article, Psychology of Pain, featured in The Denver Post and written by a NY Times journalist Sushma Subramanian. While I agree with the importance of understanding psychological issues contributing to pain, I take issue with classifying pain as a disease.
