I was in the hospital recently, and during my stay there there was some roommate switchover. This never bothers me. New roommate and I talked for a bit, and when her minister came in to pray with her and such, I closed the curtain to give them some privacy, and stayed quiet, reading Crime and Punishment for the bajillionth time.
When her preacher left, she thanked me and asked if she could pray for me. I told her of course, and lowered my head respectfully while she did, and thanked her for it afterwards. A few days later, I had come back to the room after surgery, and my family was visiting, and we had split the curtain off again so nobody would bother her.
I then asked my grandmother to do some prayers for me, and say a few blessings and the like. I didn't think anything of it, and thanked my Da when he brought me new books, a new deck of cards so I could do divination, and one for my new roommate as well (The Case for Christ, she had never read it and I had it.)
After my family left I re-opened the curtain, and said new roommate looked terrified. I asked her what was wrong and she admitted that she had figured out that I didn't believe in God (I'm a pagan) and hearing the blessings and prayers made her frightened of demons and a little scared of me.
It was a little hurtful, I admit, because I thought we had made friends over the days that had passed, and she got very offended when she figured out that the prayers I had done for her were not to her god.
So, because she was so uncomfortable, I asked to move rooms and I told her she could keep the book. When my Dad found out, he was a little mad and said I should have stayed in the room, even if she was uncomfortable, my grandmother agreed, and my best friend agreed with me.
What do you think? Should I have stayed in the room knowing it made the new roommate uncomfortable, or did I make the right decision to try and make her more comfortable while she was in a stressful situation (the hospital) to begin with?
