Thirty million women apparently suffer from this new disorder, identified by the Texas-based doctor Brent W Bost. Symptoms include fatigue, low mood, weight gain and lack of sex drive. Most vulnerable are - surprise, surprise - women between the ages of 25 and 55 with small children and jobs. Stress affects serotonin levels to create what Bost calls a pre-depressed state. Treatment involves resetting priorities. In other words, though the Hurried Woman may have to drop the kids off at school, rush off to a conference, then get home in time to cook dinner before heading to the parent/teacher meeting, she should, according to Bost, find that elusive 'me' time. She should do a bit of slow gardening, or perhaps check herself into a spa for a week or two. Of course, a female member of the medical profession might suggest that if the husband were to hurry a bit more (as in home to cook dinner and supervise homework), the wife might find her symptoms have miraculously disappeared.
