I’m probably not alone in saying that I just hate going to the hospital for any reason. Whenever I walk through those front doors it’s just like I enter another world, from the smell, to the vibe, to the surroundings. Maybe it’s just that I realize how lucky I am not being the one receiving the visits and I don’t want to push that luck.
For a guy who loves to talk, I never know quite what to say when I’m visiting someone in the hospital. There always seems to be more awkward silence than conversation and I find myself very uncomfortable in that situation. I just can’t get out of there quickly enough. Whenever I leave the hospital after a visit I always feel like a terrible person for not wanting to stick around and visit longer.
I’ll always show respect by visiting someone in the hospital, even if there are a million other places I’d rather be.
Does that make me a bad person? I’m still trying to figure that one out.
