My latest confrontation was due to the receptionist at my rheumatologists office announced my latest results to my husband who was picking up tax forms that I had to have filled out, in front of a FULL waiting room. I have a do not disclose policy in my chart - not to him, to my mom, let alone god knows who was in there. I'm the only one who needs that information, and I decide how to tell it. She scared him - and I could have found a gentler way to let him know the results.

That is a violation of my privacy and hells yeah I confronted her about it. She brushed it off, so I'm going higher. This was wrong, and I'm going to the top if I have to.

I'm a nice person, but this crossed me, and I'm not happy one bit.
GOY, I'm sure you aren't the first person she's done that to. Also, reading between the lines, I hope things are looking good for you.
