I hate hospitals. Really. The smell, weird atmosphere of silence and solemnity bring me down. And as I am generally a dynamic person, slow hospital life makes me feel like a fish out of water. I don’t know what to say or do. I feel that no matter what I say, it will be inappropriate. If I joke, it will come across that I don’t see the seriousness of the whole situation. Talking about problems just deepens the depressive feel. Silence is the worst and the most awkward. I guess each one of us has places that he likes to avoid. The dentist, the boss’ office, the Revenue Office, but for me hospitals are the worst.
