Its pretty drainng stuff. I wonder how the professionals cope with it. It drains my mental and emotional resources even to sit and listen. Aside from the girl with divorce issues I wrote about yesterday, none of these are more than aquaintences. They are coming in droves to seek counsel with Mistress Zen.
Is there a way to turn that off? The care taker vibe?
They aren't even freaks or interesting stories. One of them is the janitor at work who I never spoke to other than to say hello as I passed her in the restroom. She all of a sudden cornered me and burst into tears and told me about her husband was killed by his doctor due to negligence. Like I need to know. I suggested she seek a therapist.
