Some days, it's not a good thing

Some days, my empathy is not a good thing.  Right now, my heart races, the tears well, every last muscle fiber is shaking.  I am in shock.  I can't function at a normal level.  

And the one person who I personally knew running in Boston is safe.

This is why I don't watch the news.  It's too hard.  It sends me into an emotional tailspin every. single. time.  Yes, I know it's reality but I cannot handle reality and function as a normal human being.  And I need to function.  I have people who depend on me. 

It's not that I don't care, it's that I care too much.  Too deeply.
