Anyone else have an awkward moment they would like to share??? Now I can laugh at these moments 

So, I work for a healthcare facility, where everyone knows everyone...when I was diagnosed, the same got sent to our lab(I was not expecting an h diagnosis)....now it’s a permanent part of my chart...

My primary care dr, find out, she has a lot to say about her patients behind their back (my niece interned for her)...but she’s good, so I go there.


Today she did my pap,..I could only imagine the chatter after seeing I have an STD...it is not prevalent around here, and I don’t fit their typical stereotype.


i leave the office with my head up, a giggle inside, this is me, deal with it, it’s your job 😉

If they are actively discussing your diagnosis behind your back, then frankly none of them should be in the healthcare industry. 

Not sure if it’s texhnixally behind my back or considered gossiping because she discusses things with her nurse, or another co worker.  This, is not uncommon.  I would hope it doesn’t go any further than that because we are protected by the HIPPA Law.
