Inspired by this thread.
in my opinon, there seem to be four kinds of people:
1 ones that like and need visits from people when they are ill
2. those that like best to be left alone, except for closests ones.
- people who don’t really like visiting the really ill;
- People who see it as a kind of gracious duty to visit the ill.
Problems arise when the social ill get left alone. Or if the withdrawn ill get visited by either kind of visitor.
Am I right? Personally, I would be the kind of withdrawn ill person.
Yet a friend of mine at work, a real social butterfly, was deeply hurt when she was ill with a ruptured appendix for two weeks and none of her co-workers came or sent cards.
