A random moment on twitter. Some guy's son is undergoing surgery and he keeps posting updates about what's going on—in response to that someone else posted how pathetic he was, spending time on twitter while his son was so sick. Wow.
I get both their points of view. It does seem ridiculous to be filling total stranger in on his son's blood levels and medications, but I totally get that when you're in an insanely stressful situation, it really helps to be busy and have a sense of purpose. This poor guy sounds like he's out of his mind with worry and typing is keeping him grounded in the real world. For the most part I'm finding twitter a waste of time and energy, but I can see what an outlet it is for someone who's freaking out.
