4. check box dx's are, imho, rife w gender assumptions and biases.

women are supposed to suffer more depression, but those stats dont count the dead bodies of men who kill themselves.

i took a full neuropsyche exam after i started worrying about my memory.
the psyche part was rife w sexist bs-
ie. do you have enemies?
well, i think it is a fact that outspoken and powerful women attract enemies, and outspoken and powerful men attract fans and lackeys.
my farm has brought me many, many fans, and a handful of haters. i dont suffer fools. i dont care what these people think.

another- do you have health problems that doctors dont understand.
ask any woman who has fibro (more common in women) and she will tell you how many doctors thought it was all in her head before someone finally helped her. and even w my dx- doctors DONT understand fibro.
doctors routinely act like sexist pigs to women patient. and that makes me sick?

so that and a couple other, equally stupid, questions got me a dx of bpd.
that is just bull pucky.
