I never liked discussing my personal life at work either. But health care is a very social environment from my experience. Groups go out together with their spouses, Christmas parties, get together on their days off & on & on. I was never a part of it liking to keep my personal & work life separate. All it did was make my co-workers curious about me. I blurred the lines a little, but I never liked it & never figured out how not to discuss me & mine or my life without seeming aloof. I'm not sure it's possible in long term positions. Alas I think I was considered a cross between snobby and or weird, even tho I laughed and talked with everyone all the time. I just wasn't talking about me & mine.
