CJane had a post today about how her husband tends to get 'sympathy pains' when she gets sick, which basically means whenever she feels sick, he gets the same sickness, but on a larger scale.
I laughed and laughed about it because Ross, whether he realizes it or not, does the exact same thing! I can't be down with anything for more than a few hours before he gets the same symptoms ten times worse than mine.
For the record, however, he takes very good care of me for those few hours before he is down for the count, and I really do believe he 'feels' sick whether or not he actually 'is' sick. :)
It reminded me of this video.
Boys are funny. I am glad I am not the only one who has wondered about this phenomenon.
