My boyfriend suddenly becomes “sick” whenever I’m sick and it’s driving me insane
The title pretty much says it all. We’ve been together for two years and every single time I become sick my boyfriend starts complaining about being so much sicker than me.
For example when I had tonsillitis, he suddenly was dying from tonsillitis. When I had a uti, he’s suddenly dying from a uti. Every single time I get better he magically gets better too.
I got very sick on the 23rd of this month and have been in bed for all of Christmas. I’m really upset over missing the holiday and I cant even complain about it to him as now he’s suddenly DYING sick with the same thing but it’s somehow “worse”.
This virus has had me bed bound for 4 days and he went out last night drinking and is currently going to work, but insists he’s just as sick as me. How can I get him to stop it’s driving me mad??
I need to make something clear. This has been the happiest relationship of my life and this is one problem in it.
He doesn’t run for the hills when I get sick, he simply tells me he is also feeling off within 24 hours of me saying so. He’s a hypochondriac that thinks he’s after getting the same illness that i have and it’s driving me nuts.
He goes above and beyond in every other aspect of our relationship. I just want a simple way to explain to him that it’s annoying me where I don’t look unsympathetic.
I currently have a chest infection and he thinks he’s after getting one off me as well. There is no need to call me a “naive child” because I don’t want to break up with him over an issue that annoys me.
