I can scarcely tell you how pleased I am to be speaking at such a highly-needed conference: one devoted solely to women’s issues. Coming to Washington, D. C., for this conference is a double pleasure to me. Not only is it my first time to speak at such an event, but because sharing with you helps alleviate a medical condition I acquired in the United States of America.
Can you guess what it is? Even as a medical doctor it took me years to sort out the symptoms of my disease. I have “survivor syndrome.”
