I visited my doctor today to talk to her about my painful shoulders and neck. We got to talking about the fact that I am getting married soon, and as I was leaving, my doctor hugged me. Oh. My. Gawd. The immediate horror I felt at thinking that she could have any number of infectious diseases on her coat. Am I crazy to think that as a health care practitioner that is NOT something she should do? I washed my hands after, but who knows if that was good enough. I feel kinda silly for being horrified by that interaction, but I am also considering changing doctors. The unprofessional quality of that gesture makes me question her judgment in other arenas of my health :/ Am I being too extreme here?
