When women go to the hospital or to see their doctor, their pain are often dismissed. There is a belief that women are weak and will complain at every little thing.
Too many women have died because the doctor told them that their heart attack symptoms were “just a bit of flu” and to go home and rest.
Too many women are told exactly the same thing when in fact it was meningitis, or other illnesses, such in my case Graves’ disease.
I was personally told that my appendicitis was probably just “female issues”.
