Men, I intend to give you equal time. But first up, I'm sharing some online videos about women who are sick for extended periods of time.
Two of the themes running through both videos are 1. cruelly dismissive remarks that medical "professionals" made to women experiencing genuine illness and 2. lack of interest in exploring an intelligent, articulate adult's medical concerns and symptoms. "You're having hormone problems," "You need psychotherapy," "You're just busy and tired from raising kids," and so on were just some of the responses made to the people in these shows.
If you're a woman, you're probably familiar with the problems mentioned above. I sure am, and WOW am I disappointed in the medical world's regard for women.
Here's my suggestion for repairing the problem. Suggest watching the "Moms with Long-term Illnesses" and "Post-Partum Depression/Empty-nesters" videos to your medical team, plus to your family and friends. It's a painless and valuable education effort on their part.
Here's the link to the videos (at the same blog): http://www.douglas.co.us/networkdc/dcmom/index.html#topVideo
