Glad your HR seems to be coming through for you.
I would be tempted to mumble something about cannibalism being recommended by your doctor...
I get similar interesting assumptions due to the fact that I am a vegetarian. Apparently this means I am either (pick one)
a) A member of PETA
b) A vegan
c) Trying to lose weight
d) Fighting high cholesterol
e) etc. etc. etc.
Let's all say the line together friends!
I am a vegetarian, which apparently means I am a miltant, violent protestor who "likes their own kind", and hates all men. Hmm, that surely is a leap?
Actually, I was severely anorexic for many years. When I turned nineteen, I finally reached the 90 lb point. I was 70 lbs for so many years -- it's crazy.
