Honestly? I would just let it go. Bygones.
Probably the best approach would be to discuss your displeasure with the person who you feel has put your
s**t out there.
HIPAA's intent was originally designed to protect patients with what years ago was solely referred to as "AIDS" among some other things.
Today it has been degraded to a stealth means to attempt to nail someone you don't like against the wall.
Back then AIDS was little understood and virtually untreatable. But humans being what they are would use this information against individuals to facilitate their losing their jobs and rendering them even more of a pariah than just being someone who was sick.
So organizations such as "Act Up" advocated for laws and the protection of those so aggrieved by the splaying of their medical history willy- nilly so as to not permit bad people to "add insult to injury."
As this present situation pertains to you, HIPAA was never meant to be relied upon as a as a tool to eliminate and punish personal enemies but more as a means to obtain social justice for those too helpless and infirmed to help themselves.
So help yourself and tell blabby how you feel.
