I saw my a NP at my primary doctor last week. (Side note: I’m a RN, 38 yrs old.) I took the paperwork for a handicap placard and intermittent FMLA. That woman literally told me she has only filled it out for surgeries and, "you're so young."

I left the office and just cried in my car to my husband. I'm offended as someone with a chronic illness but almost more so as a healthcare worker. Absolutely blown away.
