I feel your pain. I am sitting here, on my computer, while working on my wife's computer. It pulled a MEMORY MANAGEMENT Blue Screen of Death. The house is not air conditioned and it is 10F degrees warmer and much dryer than normal for late September. Rain would be appreciated – my pastures are starting to brown from lack of rain. My wife and both children (all three are college students!) are studying for an exam tomorrow, leaving me to do all of the daily chores – both the household chores and the ranch chores.

Feeling ill just makes everything worse for you. But it could be much worse. From your use of words, I would assume that you are at least 40 years younger than I – Yep, I am a "retired" senior citizen.

The good news is that boyfriends and girlfriends are replaceable. I know, at first, it hurts. Better to find out about potential relationship problems before marriage. If you cannot work them out, you can both walk away. After marriage, it is significantly more difficult and much more painful.

If you want to talk, email me directly. I usually can write back late at night or shortly after midnight US Central Time.
