Perhaps denial is a useful way to deal with a chronic (mental) illness.
Do men present more reluctantly or later or with more severe symptoms than women, or do women present readily, sooner and with less severe symptoms. Are men too stubborn to seek treatment for legitimate disease, or are women to eager to seek treatment for trivial or less significant disease?
