When I was at Kaiser this morning, I had to fill out a questionnaire for all of my medical history.
One of the first questions was Marital Status:
Hello? where's the box for:
"I'm not married, but I'm not really single either since I'm in a long-term, commited relationship with my boyfriend of over five years"??!!
I think that the last time I filled out the questionnaire (last year) I checked "domestic partner". I thought that was the correct box to check meaning: "I'm in a committed relationship". However, I realize that they might also take it to mean that I am gay, and that may bring about a whole other set of questions. On a side note, I'm very impressed that Kaiser Permanente is forward thinking enough to include "domestic partner" as a choice!
This morning, I literally asked the nurse which box I should check, and she suggested "domestic partner".
So there you go.
I've been labeled.
