I used to have a Tumblr blog. This post is a comment I left in a long chain of comments about an important topic that I don’t think gets very much attention.
The original poster, a woman, wrote in great detail the severity of her health issues, and how frustrated she was because her doctors flat out refused to listen to what she was telling them. Sadly, there were so many other women who had the same, frustrating experiences with their doctors.
They added their voices to the post. Some of the younger women noted that their parents wouldn’t take their symptoms seriously, and that this prevented them from getting the medical help they needed. I decided to add my personal experiences to the list.
