I'm a psychiatrist, and I take care of patients who have sickle cell disease, a rare and painful genetic condition. I also treat people with other pain disorders.
I married a brilliant woman who also happens to be a psychiatrist and we have two high-maintenance kids. I seldom post much about my personal life, though.
I like heavy music, favorite bands (mostly from back in the day) are Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Helmet, Rites of Spring, Ministry, Rammstein, A Perfect Circle, the Deftones, Chevelle, and Big Black.
I cook a lot. I very much like anything braised and involving pig. When I first started on Google+ I expected I would be swapping recipes all the time. I then realized it takes a ridiculous amount of time to type a recipe into one of those little "Share" boxes and left that to the people who know what they're doing like +Shinae Nae.
I love a good cocktail, and in honor of the civilized tradition of the #cocktailhour I generally post a recipe for a refreshing adult beverage every Friday.
I tend to get involved in discussions about politics (I seem to hit about center-left, but get along fine with most libertarians), religion, philosophy, and occasionally gender relations. I like people who can think and talk like grown-ups and don't think lobbing grenades at people who disagree with them is a way to settle anything.
My work being how it is, I'm not a terribly prolific poster myself, but when I do it tends to be about domestic policy and my various adventures in the insanity of the American health care system.
