A coworker - someone I've been sitting near for just a handful of months, but with whom I have never once discussed the D or anything of that ilk - just sent me this email:
So my general doctor left the city and I need to see a doctor soon. I know you have an array of doctors.
Also, do you have an ear, eye nose, throat doctor? I think I have a sinus infection.
I have no idea where to begin. Obviously, she has been listening in on phone calls/appointments I've been making. I'm not shy about diabetes and my pump is readily visible, but I do not discuss doctors or my meetings with them with anyone outside of our little diabetic community or my close friends and family. And wth is up with the word choice? "Array of doctors" - like they're some cute, rainbow collection of shoes I have because they're just so irresistible? Or the fact that, because I have to deal with doctors and my health so much, clearly I would also have an ENT - I mean, someone as diseased as I am must have visited every specialist known to mankind at least once, right?
I'm sure I'm overreacting (maybe it's the crap weather?), but at the moment I'm just agog.
Goal for today: more cheerful post later!
