    I'm often asked why there is so little research into ME, and I say I have five main reasons. One of the big ones is that the illness mainly affects women, and the medical profession has a terrible history of ignoring women's pain and symptoms. Some people think that with more women in the profession, things must be improving, but my impression is that many women doctors are just as bad.

    I actually think that in many cases women doctors try to "out-nasty" the men, if you know what I mean. It's a bit like female politicians being tougher than men because they can't afford to be seen to be "soft".
