I'm so angry...

My mom emailed me to have a look on the net at polycystic ovarian syndrome. Well, this explains at least some of my weight gain, my depression, and other assorted symptoms. This disease affects 6-10% of women, most of whom don't even know it.

Of course my doctor didn't offer anything useful. He doesn't care. How many of my male doctors have patted my shoulder and told me to eat out less when I tried to tell them something was wrong? It took my only female doctor to take me seriously.

Until the medical profession gets some enlightenment, I think I'll switch exclusively to female doctors.
