Dear Nurse

Thank you for making my day start out so well. Not only do I love getting bloodwork done and waiting in that room that only has bad memories for me, I also love it when people are insensitive and stick their foot in their mouth.

Thank you for asking me if I had my baby yet. I know that I must look joyous and happy and fat enough to have just had a baby. I also know that if I had just had my baby, I would probably be toting along a carseat with a baby in it. But those are just small factors that you probably didn't take into consideration.

Thank you for dropping the subject so quickly when I answered no to the baby question. I know that me averting my eyes and answering in a very small voice probably didn't give it away that it was a sensitive subject. And since you were so observant, I also really appreciated you optimistically telling me that you hoped my numbers were going in the right direction! Yes, I do too. I hope they are going down.

In closing, I want to say that this whole experience has really helped me see that no matter where you go or what you think people should already know, there will always be an idiot amongst them.

Gratefully,
Jenn

  1. Dear Nurse. Be more careful with the fragility that surrounds pregnancy. Not everything ends happily.
