"Is this hysteria?" Meme

This meme was inspired by conversations about symptom dismissal that I had with other chronic illness patients. The label "hysteria," named after the Greek word "hystera" (uterus), has historically been used to dismiss female patients' symptoms as psychological. Female patients with invisible illnesses, as well as female patients with not-yet-diagnosed rare conditions, get labeled as "hysteric" especially frequently.
