I am really lucky, my Fiance takes excellent care of me when I am sick.  He will run out and get me whatever he thinks I want/need at all hours and he definitely picks up extra chores, etc.

The hubs does to a point because he then he thinks I’m faking it.  I get so annoyed with him when I get ill because he thinks I’m overreacting. 

So it got to the point where I started behaving the same way with him if he’s ill but then I feel guily because the nurturer just wants to come out and well, the nuturer always wins.

While i always make DH some soup, i also follow closely with my can of lysol. Just ask him to do things for you. We have a no-touching rule when we’re sick….i haven’t had a hug or kiss in about 4 days now. I don’t want his cold!

But really, if you were *that* sick, you’d just be sitting on the couch not doing anything–so maybe you should just rest and tell him to help and clean up Wink

fi spoils me rotten when i’m sick=) hell, he still tries to spoil me when HE’S sick! if he has a cold & thinks he might snore because he nose is stuffy, he’ll tell me to wake him if he does & he will go sleep in the other room so as not to bother me- of course i would never do that, but it’s very sweet! he will go pick up whatever i want at the store, keep bringing me cold drinks to stay hydrated, watch chick flix to keep me company, or leave me alone if i want & come running if i call for him, he has carried me when i’ve been to sick to walk myself to bed! i am a very lucky girl! (i also spoil him, we take good care of one another!)

@ILikePink I’m spoiled when I’m sick to. DH tucks me into bed, makes sure I have whatever I need and an animal or two to cuddle with, and then leaves me alone (which is what I like when I’m sick). He’ll come back a few times to continue to check on me and make sure everything is ok but he gives me my space because he knows I don’t like to be touched when I’m sick. I like to be left alone…yet spoiled 😛

Yep, he will tuck me into bed, get me an extra blanket, make me soup, make sure I still have water and generally take on all the household tasks while I snooze off the sickness. He is awesome.

I try and reciprocate as best as I can, but I am a bit of a germophobe. Generally I can manage good bed-side manner unless vomit is involved, then I am running for the hills.

Fiance is amazing when I am sick.  Seriously, anything I need, or rather he thinks I need, he gets. He sets me up with pillows, tea, soup, anything.  He is a very good at taking care of me when I am sick – and I am now 🙁
