I've been ordered six more weeks of physical therapy. I sent my director the list of dates/times. Unfortunately, I also had to send this to Annoying Coworker since she has to input it into the payroll system. She does not approve anything; all she does is enter the data. She and I do not share duties except for taking messages when the other is away. Here's what was said:
AC: You've got more therapy scheduled?
Me: Yes, I sent you the dates and times.
AC: I know. There's a lot of them.
AC: I mean, why do you need so much?
Me: Why do you need to know that?
AC: Well, shouldn't it be done by now?
Me: I don't want to discuss my personal medical issues.
AC: *Heavy sigh* Okay, fine.
When my director returns from his conference I think I need to discuss this with him. This is the second or third time she's questioned my medical needs and I'm tired of it. I think I handled it better this time.
