I mean he's fragile in both sense of the word, emotionally and physically. I'm not really either of these, and I can understand being emotionally fragile and can support him in that. However, I recently realized just how fragile he was physically, and it was honestly shocking to me. He strained his back a few days ago, and one morning when he woke up while we were on vacation with his family his back hurt badly and he somehow slipped out of bed. He couldn't get up on his own, and his parents helped him up and then went to the store and bought him medicine. Meanwhile, he just laid there acting helpless, and when his mom came back she gave him a massage to help. He's 24, and this was really quite shocking to me. I know it really shouldn't bother me as much as it does, but it did. I felt like he was a child, and it was startling. I don't know what to do, or if I'm overreacting. Any advice is much appreciated... thank you.
