ON THE BACK BURNER

August 30

When I went to the walk in clinic to have my infected finger treated, I was asked a question that has bothered me this whole time. I guess that there is a new category of person, male, female ,widow. I was a little taken back. Until then, no one questioned my status. I didn't have a label. Is it important to know what I am. Is this a question that I will asked now on. Do I look caucasian ?  Do I look female? Do I look widow? Will my health insurance look at me differently when they get my information. Did I hold out on them for 13 months because I was unaware that I was a new category. Is this something I have to change about me. This has worried me when I took time to think about it. I still feel married. Maybe the next time that I am asked that on a survey or questionnaire, I'll say " married".

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
