Do you like to be taken care of by your significant other when you're sick?

I'm sick and my husband is away for work. I can barely get up to use the bathroom. I ache so bad and I miss my love because he's always so good to me. He rubs my aches until the meds kick in. He makes sure I eat and have a drink. He cuddles me. He puts cold rags on me which sucks but it's needed. In the beginning I didn't know if I liked it because I didn't want him to get sick. He wouldn't have it. Luckily he's never caught anything from me.

  • I am a big boy and I normally suck it up! I don't want her to get sick either, but if she really wants to take care of me, that's fine. I would do the same for her.

  • Well, my boyfriend and I live together and last year I got a bad case of strep. I was miserable and I really did just want to be left alone, but he insisted on staying close to me. That part didn't help me feel any better, but I did appreciate other ways he took care of me. Like going to the store for soup because it was the only thing my appetite wanted. And keeping a fresh supply of water by my bedside all the time. And sleeping on the couch while I suffered severe night coughs (I volunteered to take the couch, but he wouldn't accept that).

    In short: I did want to be left alone, but I appreciated him helping me out in other ways.
