The actress received the text reply after asking her best friend, a pulmonary and critical care doctor, how she was doing.

The response she received was extremely heartbreaking.

This is the actress's original tweet, with the text message.

People were pretty quick to offer their own sentiments, hoping to get people to stay home for Thanksgiving.

Other healthcare workers responded to the text message, echoing the doctor's feelings.

They are burnt out, emotionally and physically spent.

Another doctor shared HIS thread containing even more of the current experiences of healthcare workers around the country.

So many people are going through this exact turmoil.
