Seeing Someone You Love in the Hospital

Is gut wrenching. It’s impossibly hard. The minute I saw handsome I burst into tears.

It feels like having your heart in pieces in front of you. Unable to help them. It feels like picking up the most fragile thing. It feels disorienting.

It feels like being helpless. It’s hard.

On the contrary. Every time Nate squeezed my hand it felt reassuring. It felt like strength was being pulled up from the ground below me. It felt like liquid confidence.

It’s a roller coaster ride. A ride no one should really ever have to be on alone and I was so grateful to be there for handsome and so grateful to have others there for me.
