I hate going to a new healthcare provider! The mounds of new patient info to fill out before you can be seen are sometimes overwhelming! rrgh
Being adopted adds to the process.
I have got frustrated at times filling out the paperwork (say- when I've gone to a new dentist to have annual exam and cleaning) and, really, the last thing I want to deal with is bringing up ADOPTION. I have at a few times, just lied, and used my ap's medical history.
Have you ever done this to avoid the whole "Adopted-not applicable- I don't know???"

I'm very disappointed in you Adopteeme. Whenever I see one of those forms I imagine you with your red Sharpie and your words "I am legally barred from knowing my medical history by the US government". My illusion is shattered.
