Peopled out

I left the hospital a bit early today. I’m peopled out. I love them all but I feel the need to retreat. I’ve hit a limit of sorts in the communications department. I can’t focus anymore. It’s taking herculean effort to smile at passing visitors or to feign interest in surface level convos. I don’t want to be rude or seem ungrateful for everyones love, but I just want to sit and hold my dads hand in silence.
