When Your Boyfriend is Sick...

My boyfriend has a pretty bad cold and, while he's handling it well, this is the first time I've really seen him be this sick before in our relationship.
I recently was in and out of the hospital so I know how he acts as someone helping a sick person, but now it is time to see how he acts when HE is the sick person!

So far he has three major quirks:

1. Falls asleep mid-sentence.

Really, he is just out. He seemed very awake when I asked him if he wanted me to make him tea and he literally said "I would...zzzzzzzz." Complete with a snore. It was incredible.

2. Is a space case.

Not to say that he is completely with us when he ISN'T sick, but when he's sick it is so much worse. Probably because he's on the verge of falling asleep every 5 seconds but he seriously is in a world of his own.

3. Doesn't really let me help him.

This isn't a huge problem, just a little frustrating for me. I'm the kind of person who wants to be able to help and when I ask if I can get him anything or if I should be quiet, or if he needs to be alone he just says "I don't know" or "you're already helping so much."
I've found that he just likes to be left in his own little world. Sitting next to him reading while he sleeps or making tea for the both of us seems to be enough for him. I guess I'm the same way when I'm sick (I like taking care of myself) so I understand, I just wish I could do more to make him feel better :/

My dad on the other hand, always has what we call "The Man Flu."

This is when he gets a tiny cold but acts like he has the plague or something. He deserves his days off and is allowed to be sick, but (maybe because he grew up with 5 older sisters) he is SUCH a baby when he is sick hahaha!

Do any of you guys have loved ones or friends that change personalities when they're sick?

What about yourself?!

Lol um... She's really whiny, needy and makes random noises when she's sick haha It's so adorable XD it's the only time she lets me baby and spoil her. As for me, I'm that weird person who only gets sick once a year, but for that week or so, I'm bedridden and almost die haha Even then, my will to function normally and efficiently allows me to do so, but when I get back home, I collapse. I also don't eat anything, so I drop about 8-11 pounds. I'd rather be alone. I get really irritated. leave me alone. Don't talk to me. Don't look at me. I can hear you breathing! Stop! Go away /.\ lol 😂
I really don't get sick. Maybe once every two years honestly. But when I do its pretty bad. I like to be left alone cuz I usually just sleep all day. Maybe check in once in a while to make sure I'm still breathing ...that's all. 😊
Men turn in to babies once they get married. It's awful. My husband wants me to do certain things....but doesn't want me to get near him.
Hahaha, I love The Man Flu!! hope your boyfriend feels better soon. we have that cold at our house now, and it's exhausting me.
XD I change personality when I get sick. I feel like I'm dying.

Everyone Deserves A Second Chance In Love. I Got Mine With The Help Of An Indian Astrologer
Is he the right one? Get clarity with the Indian astrologer right here. When it comes to love, I have always been unlucky. From being asked out on a date or even getting to be the guy I love, I have never got the chance to enjoy this feeling of love. The sad part is that I gave my heart and soul in every relationship I have been in, but it seemed like it wasn't enough. Looking at my bad luck in love, my friends suggested that I speak to an Indian astrologer in UK. But me being me, I didn't believe in astrology and stuff. So, I just kept trying and finally got a date with my crush. From a single date, it went on to many dates, and we finally started dating. I was super excited and pumped up. It felt like I found the love of my life. Everything seemed rosy, and I decided to be the best version of myself. I never restricted my partner or doubted him regarding anything, and he was pretty happy about it. We decided to move in together, and it was like a dream come true. I started to flaunt in front of everyone. I told my besties that I could do it and finally have what I wanted, but they seemed to have something to share with me. The hesitation in their happiness signaled something, but I thought it was jealousy and ignored it. It had been the best three months of my life. Life seemed to bless me with some great things. Who knew this castle would eventually fall. My best friend once visited me and asked me to go on a walk with her. When we left and walked a few miles, she told me that the man I was dating was already married. I snapped at her on hearing this. She asked me to notice that he is not home most of the time, and there has been no weekend where he has stayed with you. When she told me this, everything that I ignored all this time came right in front of me. I decided to confront him the same evening. On doing so, he got agitated and started to scream. He went to the extent that he raised his hand at me. I was taken aback and just froze there. He left the house, and I was left picking broken pieces of my heart. Days passed, and I locked myself up and decided to give up on life. I kept questioning myself that where did I go wrong. My friends were there and came to console and proposed speaking to the best astrologer in UK. Finally, heartbroken, I decided to give it a shot. I downloaded the Astroyogi app and spoke to the astrologer. The moment I started to talk, I broke down and couldn't stop crying. But somehow, I felt good. It felt light. He created my birth chart and began telling me about my life. He said that it is because of the unfavorable planets I have been facing such hardships in love. I always end up loving the wrong people. He also told me that I need to trust my destiny and wait for the right one to enter my life. He asked me to be more vigilant and careful before going into any relationship. I should analyze every aspect and tell myself I deserve the best. It made me feel better, and I took a break for some time. I decided to listen to my instinct and stay positive. Speak to the top astrologers anywhere, anytime. Call Now. Finally, after six months, I met Roger. This time I was careful and decided to go slow. Things were going great, but I also was careful not to give myself away totally until I was sure of him. I again consulted the astrologer in London to get clarity and guidance regarding this relationship. Even though I was not ready to give love a second chance, he gave me a heads-up that this would be worth it. It's been a year with Roger now, and we are planning to get married next month. Preparation is in full swing, and I am grateful to the Astroyogi app for helping me find the best astrologer in UK who helped me get a second chance in love. Source
