I shocked and confused a doctor (without even removing my bra).

I had an appointment today for an unrelated issue and during the course of conversation, my boyfriend said something about me being disabled. The doctor stopped totally and repeated it back to him, not me, with more high-pitched incredulity than I have ever heard come out of a middle aged-man, "She's disabled?"

I just started laughing. It was the oddest response from a doctor yet, and I can't fathom what was going through his mind to make him sound so shocked and confused. I mean, he's this old curmudgeonly doctor, right? He's seen it all. And little ol' me made him go WHAAAAAAT?????

It was funny.

I think that is one of the harder things about my disability. People can't tell I am disabled when we first meet. Usually I'm not out and about unless I feel halfway decent. I don't know if they believe me or not, but I hate explaining it to people for the first time.

I guess he had a very narrow idea of what types of afflictions cause disability!!
