I’m such an empath.. so like I was at the hospital to visit my grandpa (nothing serious, he just felt like something was off) and like, walking through the halls is torture. I can just feel all the boredom and loneliness and the depression and the giving up, it sucks. I’ve always been an emotional sponge. But this time I was so vulnerable and dizzy. It was a really draining experience
YES. I’ve been to the ICU a few times (family member visits and once for me) and its super emotionally exhausting. I dread going to hospitals for this reason. Empathy hurts.
