Women better at surviving trauma than men

More good news about being a woman--and from the Johns Hopkins Newsletter, no less! It seems that the hormone estrogen helps women survive trauma better than men (in fact, according to this study, their high levels of testosterone work against them). I'm very curious to ask my doctor about this, as I survived a very bad car crash almost 19 years ago, and I have been way estrogen dominant all of my adult life.
