To be honest, I think that was pretty amazing what Dr. Bob did.
Most people in that position, particularly doctor's that I've met, wouldn't have invested the time or emotion to get involved.
I know it feels like an intrusion, but it's the people that do things we don't like, who are usually the ones doing the most to help us, despite our discontent in their doing so.
The more you can refrain from being upset by people, even when it's justified, the easier it is to make it to the next day.
There is an important saying that goes a long way. I don't remember it word for word, but essentially: when you get upset with someone it only hurts *you*. For the most part, the other person is mildy affected (at best) while your personality suffers significantly.
In short, it's nice to know there are people that care enough about you to go to those lengths (looking up your ISP, etc -- that's not easy) and further, taking the time to own-up to doing so.
I hope you'll be able to see this positive-side of the coin and continue to do such a great job in getting back on track.
Keep your chin up; you sound like you have a lot to offer others, and I'm looking forward to hearing from you once you're back on your game and doing well :-).
