Trip to the Dr.

I went to see the Neurologist today for my back. He was looking at my chart and this is the conversation we had:
Dr: So do you still work at Kalkreuth Roofing?
Me: No, Im a SAHM
Dr: Oh....so you DIDNT go back to work?
Me: Nope
Dr.: You dont have any family that can watch her?
Me: I didnt plan to get pregnant and have someone else raise my daughter.
Dr: Oh, So where does your Husband work?
Me: Walmart
Dr: So your making enough on just ONE income?
Me: Yep we doing fine.
Dr. Hmm

WTH?? When did my financial status become any of his buisness?? Its not like I have a bill that needs paid with him or anything. If I want to stay at home and raise my daughter, thats my choice, and I feel damn good about that choice!

Anyway, the good news is he doesnt think my current pain is due to the slightly buldging disks I have. He thinks its just bad muscle spasms. He is going to review my MRI (from last year). Im going to call tomorrow at lunch time to find out what the plan is.

Thats good that he doest thing its serious you back, but what does it have to do with him what you and your family does? . I get it all the time people asking how we manage with DH being a student and me not working , its really none of their business is it

That is so annoying. I can't stand how its become such an issue (financial status) I filled out forms at our doctors and they asked for our current income range! I of course did not answer it (I checked off prefer not to answer) But when I first became a SAHM I always got the "can you guys afford for you not to work" Why is it anyones business!

That's very bizarre. I had a pulmonologist spend twenty minutes asking me about my Invisalign, how much they cost, etc.
