Feeling sick after a fight with your man isn’t anything new, and it’s a perfectly normal reaction. Starting to feel sick every day or more often than you normally do is not so normal.

Dealing with your boyfriend’s antics causes stress. When you’re under stress, your body believes there is a threat that it needs to take care of, and it will rev up to prepare itself to either fight or flee the situation.

When your immune system isn’t functioning at its optimal level, it can’t ward off germs, which then makes you vulnerable to colds and the flu.
