Mystery Disease

I have a co-worker who is moderately slender all over but has a fat stomach that makes her look pregnant. So pregnant that delivery guys have asked when is she due and people on the train have offered their seat to her because they think she is pregnant.

I don't see her eat a lot of food at work. Coffee in the morning, lunch at around 1:30 pm and then tea afterwards. nothing else. She has been like this for the 2 years that I've worked here and even longer. Does anyone have a clue as to what illness can cause that?

i don't know the answer to your question, but it clearly sounds like you're suffering from being nosy.

Has she had children? Sounds like it could be that Distassi Recti (sp)thing where your tummy muscles "give" during pregnancy. Just a guess.

this is a very open office and after a couple of years of working with someone you get to know some of their habits. If I was as nosy as you say, I would have asked her.

So shut UP

If you read posts from the many threads on this site, you will see that one theme that winds its way through most discussions is how self-conscious we are about our appearance.

The woman in your office is probably self-conscious about her own body shape which may or may not be due to some health ailment.

She has apparently chosen not to discuss this personal matter with you, yet you persist in getting to the bottom of it - even to the point of writing about the poor woman on the internet.

How unfortunate that your own life is so empty and that your employer has so little work you're able to do that you have time to sit around and stare at others all day.

I feel very sad for you.
