Dear People I Come In Contact With On A Daily Basis,
I thought it only fair that I warn you about something.
And somehow, as a result of said pregnancy, the filter between my head and my mouth is broken.
I try really hard to not speak when I'm annoyed, but on occasion words are going to slip out.
I might apologize for those words, but I might not.
Let me give you an example of something you might not want to say to me.
If I call you to find out why my insurance didn't cover even 10% of my last trip to the ER, and you tell me it's because my insurance only has coverage in Utah, unless my condition is life-threatening, I'll say a few choice words about insurance in general, but I'll pay the bill.
I'll pay the bill because I did go to the ER in Colorado.
And although, in my humble opinion, throwing up a million times a day can be life-threatening, you will never agree with me.
However...when what you say next to me is this:
"...have you checked into options to help with the vertigo at your doctors office or clinic? I know that this would be a less expensive option for you when you are in town."
You can probably be guaranteed that I'm not going to keep my mouth shut.
I will use words like 'patronizing' and 'do you really think I'm that stupid?' and other words too.
I will use many words to let you know that the ER is never my first choice, but it if is my only choice, I will take it...even if I inconveniently get sick outside of Utah.
And then I will end the conversation...because I'll be all worked up...and that's not good for the baby.
Consider yourself fairly warned...
