Will someone please help this woman?!

Did anyone ever tell Abby Norman that if she isn't concerned with her fertility, then she needs to find a doctor willing to perform a hysterectomy! But even then, that won't stop endometriosis.

A little more science reporting mixed with the personal story from Ms Norman would have taken this one from 3.5 stars to closer to 5.

Quotes Melissa Rochelle Liked

“As for explaining away her physical symptoms (that pesky cough, for one) Freud thought it was caused by a phantom penis—one that only existed in the fantasies of her mind. Dora, he believed, was having unconscious dick-sucking fantasies that were causing her to have a chronic tickling sensation in her throat, which made her cough.”
Abby Norman, Ask Me About My Uterus: A Quest to Make Doctors Believe in Women's Pain
