Ben has always said to me that I get too easily frustrated with not being able to do things on a mountain bike that have taken him years to master. I think some of my frustration in anesthesia stems from the same thing. I am used to things coming easily to me, especially things you do with your hands. I have been told that I one-hand-tie better than most first year surgery residents, I got my first LP on the first try, I can make a mean friendship bracelet, I suture neatly and efficiently... I cannot intubate. But that's OK. I can still work on it and have a bit of faith that eventually I'll get it. Like how I eventually learned to get out of my clipless pedals before falling over. I hope this experience is less painful.
