“Rushing Women’s Syndrome”

The buzz word in medical diagnosis currently penned by Lisa Curry ex-Kenny. (did she really get a Doctor to agree to this?) apologising for EVERY Woman IN THE WORLD for the “Rushing Women syndrome” I must state, after I read the article I can agree with her, it is a serious condition and can be contributed to the breaking up of her marriage. It must be serious as it has been reported in media sites and on twitter and something I hope we all don’t catch or perhaps as some of us know we already have it in varying degrees. It may have different strains though, For some it has full-blown symptoms 24/7 bitch which makes husbands and children leave the family home and stay away, perhaps it is the 7 days or so of PMS bitch that can cause a milder dose where they can avoid you for a week or so and things go to normal before they become symptomatic, or like a mild cold where it appears every-now and then and  everyone around you has to ‘suck it up for a while” please don’t mistake it for ‘manflu’ though, that in itself is another topic and brings its own sets of problems.

I have been to the Doctor a few times in the last couple of months and at no time have they even offered this as my diagnosis, after reading Lisa’s article I know this is what I have as well. I sat in the Dr’s clinic in a wheel chair for over 2 hours with a suspected broken ankle, the Doctor, I can assure you doesn’t have “Rushing Woman’s Syndrome” she (the Dr.) in fact seemed to have “I can’t be bothered today” syndrome and acted accordingly. I didn’t have a fractured ankle, I had a 3/4 ruptured Achilles tendon which wasn’t diagnosed from this Doctor. At the time I did this injury I can tell you with no uncertain terms I had “rushing women’s syndrome”. I happened to meet a distressed steer 3 metres from me, we faced off, he dropped his head and I turned and RAN. I ran until I hit a pothole, fell, heard and felt a ‘pop’ and continued to roll out of its way. I couldn’t weight bare and felt nauseous with pain for days (4 weeks later it is still sore) so does this count?

I know I have had “rushing women’s syndrome” when I do the house work, I hate doing the housework, so I get the vacuum out and rush through doing the floors, if I have to dust well then you can almost see the cloud as I rush to finish. I can see how Lisa is confused with her diagnosis, I too get bitchy if I have spent 3 hours doing the housework and he walks inside with muddy feet, or worse our 15 yr old Golden Retriever anciently deposits pooh on the nice clean floors and walks off. I certainly can feel the rush of anger then, my face can turn red and I can feel the ‘rushing’ of words that make my ‘potty’ mouth function.

Perhaps we need to look at it from the perspective of poor Lisa Curry ex-Kenny, she has been roasted by many women asking her not to apologise for them (as she made it a general statement for all women) I embrace it, I am going to pin it up on the fridge so that I have an excuse to be a bitch all the time. It will help me when I refuse to assist or just don’t feel like doing anything. See my “rushing women’s syndrome” is tempered by a “sleepy women’s syndrome” or “PMS Syndrome” or “I’ve taken too much on syndrome” actually if you think about it we as women know that Lisa has started the trend and it is trending on twitter, we can give ourselves syndromes to clarify all aspects of our daily lives.

I feel for Lisa Curry ex-Kenny, she must still be in love with her ex husband, she continues to try to find excuses to have broken up with him. Instead of saying we split and I regret it 3 (or so) years later, we have to hear her apologise for every woman a mistake she made in divorcing her partner. I think as a woman giving this air time is great, it start debate and makes us cringe for Lisa Curry ex-Kenny, she should keep this to herself. Only those close to her were upset when they broke up, but all marriage break ups are awful, sides are taken and people are hurt, then you have children who have to live this out in the media. I note she is no longer accompanied by the young man she was dating and doing IVF and  do feel sorry for her, with all of the joy in her life she can still find misery, or a diagnosis which seems fanciful.

Today I am apologizing for my “Rushing Women’s Syndrome” I have woken feeling like I need to start a fight with someone (sorry Lisa Curry ex-Kenny it may be you) I have the cranky pants on, it’s book work day, it’s paying accounts day, it’s raining, it’s not raining enough, it’s cold, I have pain in my ankle (still) I have many things I wish to do but am already running out of time but the highlight is I have a heater, Gatsby the cat on the desk in the inbox, Pete the Golden Retriever on his bed on the floor of my office and I am loved! it is only Monday, start of the week much more “rushing” to come this week.

One thought on ““Rushing Women’s Syndrome”

  1. Great blog… I’d have to say, this “Rushing Woman Syndrome” seems to be an excuse for over-commitment issues, rather than a condition… just a thought! If you are not happy with your life, much easier to blame someone or something, rather than looking in the mirror… hope your ankle is much better soon, and you get that awful bookwork done xox
