Why Don't Doctors Listen to Women?

Congratulations and thanks to Nancy Klimas for getting a snippet about our disease out in the relative mainstream - the Ms. Magazine blog.

I've had doctors accuse me of things they obviously see in the sort of women who chase doctors: getting married with the primary intention of quitting my job, getting divorced with the primary intention of getting massive amounts of alimony, etc.  Things that don't work if you're married to a guy who makes minimum wage.  That a woman would want to work, that a woman would have a career she doesn't want to give up, doesn't match up to what they've seen in their own wives, therefore, it does not compute.
