Bleed : Destroying Myths And Misogyny In Endometriosis Care by Tracey Lindeman

In the book praised by Heather O’Neill, author of “When We Lost Our Heads,” a scorching examination of the current treatment of endometriosis is presented. If you have ever been invalidated, told that your pain is not real and that there are simple remedies like yoga or CBD oil to magically heal you, then you are familiar with the reality faced by the more than 190 million people who suffer from this excruciating condition. Endometriosis, affecting one in ten cis women and countless others, is a disease that is consistently overlooked, underfunded, and misunderstood by the medical system. This mistreatment, combined with discrimination and medical gaslighting, often causes patients to suffer even more than before seeking help.

Tracey Lindeman, a journalist who personally experienced decades of suffering from endometriosis, shares her journey in BLEED. This captivating book is part memoir, part investigative journalism, and entirely an incrimination of the failures of the medical system towards patients. With extensive research and interviews, BLEED traces the origin of medicine and exposes how the system gained its authority by marginalizing women. By adopting an intersectional perspective, BLEED delves into how the medical system continues to perpetuate misogyny, racism, classism, ageism, transphobia, fatphobia, and other forms of prejudice today.

BLEED goes beyond being a self-help book. It serves as an evidence file and a powerful wake-up call. It validates the experiences of those who have been gaslit, mistreated, or simply ignored by the medical community. Above all, BLEED will inspire readers to join the fight for nothing short of revolution. It is a brilliant, blistering read that cannot be ignored.
