So often in the clinic I treat women who have neglected themselves. We so often put everyone else’s needs and interests before ourselves.
Physicians are even worse. We don’t like to seek help at all. We are too busy to think about ourselves. We don’t want to seem stupid if our self diagnosis is incorrect or to be put in the helpless patient role or to be reminded that we are anything but invincible.
Get a female physician and the combo can be deadly.
So we ignore things until BAM! Life hits us and we end up against a wall.
Time to regroup and recuperate!
