now you can know that i had other reasons for being anxious

I have had to start nerve-wracking conversations in the past. Instigating The Break-Up Talk. Telling patients about iatrogenic complications. Trying to subtly indicate to someone who just gave a huge lecture in from of lots of people that their fly was open THE WHOLE TIME.

But I have to say, you haven't had a real anxiety-provoking conversation until you have to tell one of the partners of your new private practice group, on your very first day of work, that you are 17 weeks pregnant.

More later. OF COURSE.
