    So I was sick yesterday ;( Yes sad story indeed. Anyway I was all alone in my studenthouse cause the others were all gone. I was just imagining how great it would be to have a boyfriend who comes to you when ur sick and takes care of you and stuff icon_razz.gif

    It got me wondering, what kind of special things do u do for ur bf when he's sick or does he do for you when you are sick?

    I don't really like being coddled when I'm sick, just like him to bring me food and drinks so I don't have to get up!

    But, I like looking after a patient!

    He will go to the store (which he hates) for food, etc. but that's about it. I haven't been majorly sick TBTG but I think I'd have to call in reinforcements.

    He becomes an old grump and retreats to the bedroom and doesn't want to be bothered.

    I'm close, I don't want to be "huddled over", just some help if I really need it.

    I just make sure they have something to drink and eat if they want and leave them alone unless they all for something else. I don't like to be excessively fawned over when I'm sick, so I treat others the same way.

    What fantasy land do you live in? Get up and take care of yourself. Unless, you just had major surgery or are in the hospital, u dont need someone hovering over you. If you are contagious, bf should be far away so he doesnt get sick too. He aint your momma.

    I guess it depends:

    Hangover = no love, but support

    Occasional/Seasonal = support at a distance (food/drink/essentials)

    Chronic Illness = Anything and everything plus with massage and smiles(dated someone with Crohn's and Hotchkins)

    When I'm sick, I'm grumpy, out-of-sorts, cantankerous, etc. Everyone, especially loved ones, best stay away from me

    I dont live in any kind of fantasy. Because I am sure that when my future boyfriend will have a fever I will definitely take care of him and I will expect him to do the same when im not feeling well. Just checking every now and then and making sure he has food and drink and stuff, not talking about tugging him in or whatever.

    My guess is you have never had a long term live in bf. Your BF is a grown man. He can take care if himself and will be better of in the long run toughing it out without you hovering like a helicopter mom.


    And your probably whiny as hell yourself. Your type usually expects full service maid during an illness but never reciprocate. Lol

    Come on catfish, chill a bit. I don't mind getting a little extra loving when I sick. Especially if it's the flu and your body feels like a truck ran over it. And I was in a 16+ yr relationship, and that's what we did for each other.

    Yeah, yeah. Well one taste of my chicken soup and I'll have you eating out of hands. (not that I'd serve the soup out of my hands cause that would burn)icon_biggrin.gif

    lol! Are u in ur penopauze or something? How dare you make judgements about me when you don't even know me... I just asked a simple question and you start to insult me? I never said I wanted a helicopter mom, neither I was gonna be one. I just said I was gonna be there if he needs it, and I expect the same.

    Catfish, relationships are rather reciprocal things.

    Daelin, the idea that you expect your man to do what you would do if he was sick is a little problematic in that expectations can often be interpreted as demands.

    Bill and I love looking after each other when one of us gets sick. When he tore his calf and was unable to get around the house I was his go-for and made a pretty good nurse, says he.

    When I caught H1n1 he was right there as I could hardly move and had a spiking fever. It lasted 10 days.

    -Doug

    I spoil the hell out of him. He doesn't have to do much passed work obligations and the john. I cook for him, massage him, keep him hydrated, laughing and supplied.

    When I'm sick guys don't even have a clue. I keep going and going. Super immune system, staying hydrated, and eating healthy help lots. When other take in an excess of comfort food, I take in the dark leafy goodness; than half a dozen of donuts.

    He had food poisoning so I brought him Gatorade and lots of water. There isn't much else you can do with food poisoning. I just stuck around while he slept and did my own thing like watch TV until he got better.

    If i am sick I just drug myself up and sleep until I get better.
