Stop dismissing women’s pain

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”.
