He's the kind of person who takes care of everyone else, but won't let me take care of him even when he's in this much pain. Ex: He insisted he walk the dog, was still trying to move and fix the refrigerator, and he put in a full day of work even with being sick. He kept apologizing for "being boring" last night because he just slept, and then this morning said, he "wished I wasn't mad at him."
Cue my: WHA??!
I was never mad and have no idea what gave him that impression. I am concerned, and I feel terrible that he feels so sick.
I am not sure what I can do for him to help with the discomfort (I already got him real ginger ale and chicken soup) but I really want to do something. And I want to do something to show him that I am far from mad.
I just want to show him I care, and I just want to take care of him for once, but he won't let me and I don't know what else I can do.
What do you do when your SO is sick? What do you do when someone is very sick but refuses to accept any assistance?
