The couple who's sick together...

This week was a wash. With both of us dealing with the flu and a busy week at work, it was not the most productive of weeks. 

It started with a cold last weekend...from me. 

Then on Monday, he got the flu. 

Then, 24 hours later, I had the flu. 

Both of us, sick, at the same time. 

When you're both sick, it brings up an interesting relationship dynamic. 

When he's sick, my husband likes to retreat to our bed until most symptoms have quelled. I also sleep when I'm tired, but move around because I crave the comfort that comes from physical closeness. I may sleep on the couch or in our bed, but I need to move and be physically close, like when I was a kid and it was my Mom who stayed close by with a glass of water or her hand on my head, checking my temperature. 

Luckily, we're both on the mend. My fever finally broke and most symptoms have subsided. He's back at work and feeling more like himself. 

Now, for me, it's reintroducing nutrition and movement so I can get to my CrossFit Opens workout, 19.1 this weekend. 

What's the dynamic like in your relationship when one or both, you and your partner, are sick?
