As other bloggers have mentioned in the past, it's always hard to tell new moms you meet that you're a physician. I worry about the reaction, that it will make people uncomfortable, that they won't want to be friends with me anymore.
But lately I've hit on a solution:
Other mom: "What do you do?"
Me: "I'm a physiatrist. Do you know what that is?"
Mom: [likely thinking: physiotherapist, podiatrist, etc] "Oh! Yes!"
And she has absolutely no idea I'm a doctor.
