Why are Polish girls constantly ill?

of course, it helps you lose all the inhibitions you may have

Pity most polish girls do not drink vodka.

Actually, a liberal dose of both. Starting with the vodka, of course.

But then again, what I call a liberal dose of Wódka would be enough to knock me out, so if I were to do this all the time, I'm afraid that this would mean the girls can forget about sex entirely..

;P

As our provincial gambling authority states:

Know your limit, play within it!

I grew up with this kind of music, so I hope this explains everything?

Back to the doctor thing- A couple of months ago I was feeling pretty bad but I have 2 kids and a job and a husband and a life so I just attributed it to being tired. Being a google freak, I googled my symptoms and found out that a fever with swollen glands and no coughing warrants a dr's visit. I waited a couple of more days and then finally dragged myself to the dr's office ("first contact" dr). The doctor asked me what was up, examined me and then sat down and began writing a lot of stuff. I had to ask her what the diagnosis was (bronchitis) and she was deeply offended when I asked her on what basis she had made that diagnosis. Anyhow, to get back to the point, she couldn't understand why I had waited so long to come to the dr esp that the visit was "free" (I mean you pay for it in your taxes). That got me thinking. I'm American and every dr's visit in the US even with insurance is quite costly so I'm just in the habit of playing wait and see. Maybe that's why Polish women visit the doctor more often and seem to have more illnesses than the rest of us. Maybe they just have a habit of going to the dr at the first signs of illness and not waiting like I do.

But if we are talking about my mother-in-law and going to the doctor, that's another story. Try to get a lady like her to go the gynecologist. Impossible!

"I'm fine, thanks" just isn't enough; us Poles may not be right all the time, but we are right on this one :)

I have seen a few guys out jogging in Poland but never a woman.

I went jogging a few times when I was in Poland last summer and i was the only person doing so. i got a few weird looks but oh well, i still kept doing it.

Positive vibes, or maybe just a decently working vibrator? :P

hahahahah :)

In terms of women going to to the doctor all the time I know that in my family the women never go to the doctor unless it's an emergency, i think it has to do with them being too darn stubborn to seek help. but that is just my family. i'm different, i pay attention to my body and go to the doctor for regular check ups.

From what I see, it seems that most of polish girls are athlethic with muscles. One expects healtier bodies. No contradiction here, doctors?

What a weird thread!
How is it related to relationships?
In my opinion many woman from Great Britain or USA, no matter actually what country they come from, look more after their health than man. Only man could start a thread like this. Looking after my health is as natural for me as eating breakfast every day. Man care for their health only (or mostly) when they are sick (then they are "dying"). And who do they should ask for advice in situation like this, if not woman?

We are just prepered for looking after "man flu". That's why we have a lot of medicines in our cupboards.
Polish girls don't eat enough? LOL
I thought American or French girls are more obsessed with their bodies than we are.

"man flu".

Invented by those crappy mags that women read along with "wimmin can multi task" rubbish.

I bet you read those "crappy" mags too ;0) Some men do go into self pitty mode when they get a sniffle though..Notice I say some, my ex didnt have a day off work in all the years we were together and he had colds..He'd just whimper a lot and complain how ill he felt! (I have the bedside manner of Dr Shipman so he got no sympathy off me! lol) Women do tend to just get on with it...

lol. That's a pretty good advise. When i talk to my family in Poland, sooner or later the subject changes to who is sick, who was or who is not feeling well and is going to get sick.

I don't know why so many people are so quick to declare that they are sick, have aches and pains and almost with pride - list the medications they take.

The other extreme: people in The USA are always 'fine", even when gravely sick.
They also love to take a lot of pills, prescribed or over the counter or supplements... The difference - they don't openly talk about it.

I understand that there are illnesses which require medication and thanks to the pharmaceutical research, many diseases from the past are controlled.
I'm sooo against unnecessary pill popping. People don't realize how much damage they cause in the body.
I never had any flu vaccinations and will not have the oinky one either.

One post every two months, and the best you can do on this occasion is another sexist stereotype?

Fortunately, and at long last, it's been recognised here in the UK that one of the reasons men don't go to their doctor enough is because they can't get the time off work, and GP practices are doing nothing to address the problem. To make it worse, we are frequently bombarded with "women's health" issues, but "men's health" issues don't seem to matter, especially when you consider that men's life expectancy is at least 5 years less than women's. This is unacceptable.

I've noticed this in person recently, as I've had no choice but to visit my doctor frequently (yes, genuine illness, not "man flu", ffs), and guess what? Every day, the waiting room is at least 90% full of women. And why is this, do you think? Because women are more likely to work part-time, or stay at home to look after children, which makes it much easier to get the GP during typical opening hours (0830-1800).

It doesn't take a genius to work out that, if that is the case, men aren't exactly going to risk losing money or their job on wasting their doctor's time on so-called "trivial" medical problems... which eventually become bigger problems, and by the time they get the chance to see a doctor, they probably do feel like they are "dying".

World is full of stereotypes, also on this forum.
And don't take it personally. "Man flu" exists, serious diseases too. Sometimes they call this "hypochondria". it's also illness.

The problem with men is that they like to play the macho attitude. They think they are invincible and often ignore some obvious symptoms, hoping for them to go away... until too late. We lost a neighbor (late 50's) a couple of months ago because he would refuse to go to the doctor. He confided his health issues another neighbor who was telling him to go to the doctor, but he said not to worry it will pass, it didn't - he did.

Women tend to run to the doctor with every little issue.

Some people worry that if they take off from work for doctor's visits too often the management will think that they are sick and may let them go...it is officially against the law, but known to happen.

Ha....in my case just the opposite....doctors , hospitals etc , scare me daft...i avoid them as much as possible....Mind you during twenty odd years of motorcycle and car racing doctors became a part of life...possibly why i avoid going to them now , unless i really have to...its not wise , i know....Actually i think women are tougher when it comes to resisting illness , but they are more likely to get something checked out before it gets serious...guys tend to wait till its too late to fix it...

I think you'll find that there is no strain of "flu" which only affects men, so stop talking out of your dupa. Most of us men no longer blame all women's problems on "the time of the month" so stfu or go and read some real medical research, not what you read about in "Przyjaciółka" or "Laif" or your boyfriend's "Nuts".

h, and Osiedle Ruda, 504 posts and the best you can do is to call somebody who you don't know at all (just 3 posts) sexist?

After your last post, what else did you expect?

Not sure if they are really ill. Often the issue is cultural rather than factual.

In the US and Canada the "How are you" question is not really a question. It is an invitation to saying "I'm great, thank you. And how are you". The answer will be the same even if the person just lost the job, got diagnosed with cancer, her husband has been arrested for communicating with a prostitute, the kids all got failing grades in their final exams, bills pile up beyond manageable levels but hey! I'm great! And how are you?

It seems that in Poland, if you ask a question you may as well expect an answer.

IMO it is a part of the Polish feminine culture to be slightly hypochondriac. Polish women are feminine in the "old fashion" way, and for many that means they have to pretend they are always sick (or they think they are).

By the "old fashion" feminine culture I mean Anna Karenina type of women, as opposed to the "new" Western feminine culture, like Charlies Angels type of women.

Also, being a hypochondriac is giving them a great excuse to constantly complain about something, also a part of the "old" Polish culture.

now there's no need for that, it almost makes you look like noreen really upset you. guys generalise about Polish women ALL THE TIME on this forum. i agree with a lot of stuff she said, and i'm sure she didn't mean to offend you so much. it's true about man flu, i've witnessed so many cases where guys love to feel sorry for themselves and require constant attention because they're 'dying'. the 'hungover and horny' line is also very amusing ha ha... 'oh yes dear i'll be right there' and off i go in my naughty nurse outfit... ;D

come on, you gotta laugh. women have pms, men have man flu.

Osiedla is a poster I find myself agreeing with almost always. However, I think Justy has a point here. There are those who are self piteous and whimper/whine. Guys should be manly and take it on the chin.

On the other hand, man flu is a bit extreme :)
