I am writing a book about women's experiences seeking medical care.

I am specifically looking for stories from women who are overweight or obese, who have had actual non-weight-related medical issues dismissed by doctors.

I am also looking for stories from autistic adult women who have had difficulties navigating the medical system in America and advocating for themselves with dismissive doctors.

Please feel free to document your story here, with as much detail as possible.

Please be aware that your story may be edited for grammar/punctuation and/or clarity if chosen for the book. Actual names will not be used.

Thanks for submitting!
