I'm sorry the people at work aren't more supportive. People here are invasive but they mean well. I too want to tell them to mind their own business but I *can't* so I've gotten good at deflecting.

Here's a funny story:

I often forget my wedding rings, especially if I'm rushed in the morning. Matching shoes to the outfit is so much more important. Anyway - one day our clinical director came in and said people were worried about me and wondered what was going on since I had stopped wearing my rings. I burst out laughing. Really. I mean...OH MY GOD! It is so not their business. But since I'm the "boss" people read my moods as performance issues.

Hang in there. We'll be nice to you!

You might also talk in therapy about the best way to handle this too. I've done that with my Therapist. He likes to play the role of the pushy director and have me defend myself. It was a valuable exercise.
