POLL: What Kind of Person Are You When You’re Sick?
Relationships are supposed to be for better or worse. A solid test of compatibility is how you prefer to be treated when you're sick. What kind of person are you when you're sick?
It's important to know the kind of person you are. There's no use pretending that you're the type of person that can just be left alone when you're not feeling well, when the truth is, you'd rather have someone spoon-feeding you chicken soup while you watch Netflix. Denial is never healthy, especially when you're sick.
It can also be a challenge when your partner is the opposite type than you. For example, if you like to be left alone, but your spouse is the type to think they're probably dying from that cold...well, you can see how trouble could arise.
Of course, there's always the dreaded "man cold." You know, the cold that only men get. It has a number of symptoms, but it's distinguishing features are that it renders men 100% helpless and it's definitely worse than anything you have.
Beth is definitely a "bring me soup and rub my feet" type, while Dave is more a "throw me tissues and leave me alone-r." Fortunately, he doesn't mind running out for chicken and rice soup from China House in New Hartford (which by the way, cures everything).
