So I contracted covid this last week, itís been up and down. With fever and chills. My ďbest friendĒ didnít call/text me yesterday or today to check in. Iím sick I know Iím being a Whiny baby, but would that hurt your feelings? I mean coworkers are checking in on me.

a baby or whiny. I would be very upset if my BFF didn't call to check on me. For goodness sakes you don't check COVID from the phone. I'm glad your coworkers are checking on you.

My feelings would definitely be hurt if my BFF didn’t call me for two days to see how how I was doing if I had Covid. Is it possible there is a reason for her not calling or checking in on you?

P.S. I sure hope you are on the mend soon!

I hope you are feeling better soon and you have a mild case. I'm so sorry you've gotten COVID.

It would hurt my feelings. Maybe she is afraid to wake you. Get better!

My first thought is that your friend is letting you rest.... is it possible your friend is ill with it now, too? I hope you recovery quickly and fully!

I'd give her a few days. But yes, it would hurt my feelings. My sister, who lives just down the block from me, didn't call or come down when I had a melanoma removed years ago. I was ok, and resting, but no call. I've never forgotten it. Hope you feel better soon and get the comfort you need from others.

No. It wouldn't hurt my feelings at all that my friend went a few days and didn't check on me.

I hope you feel better! I can't tell you how to feel, but could your friend not have contacted you thinking you needed rest?

I'm sorry your friend hasn't been in touch. That would hurt my feelings too. I hope you are feeling much better soon.

I hope you feel better soon. Maybe your friend feels you are not able to talk right now, hopefully they call you soon.

I'm sorry you're sick, and that you haven't heard from your friend yet. Maybe there's a reason? I don't know, of course. I hope you feel better soon!

My feelings would be hurt! Even a text would help - letting you know she's thinking about you. Hope you feel better soon!

I never answered your question-- whether or not I would be hurt would depend on some questions. Does your friend know? Did she contact you initially to check in and just hasn't for a few days? Has she never acknowledged it or checked in on you?

If we had been in touch and then I didn't hear from her for a few days it would not hurt my feelings. If she knew (and I knew that for sure) and she never checked in with me, I would be hurt. Hopefully your friend is healthy.

It would bother me a lot if my best friend didn't get in touch after finding out I had Covid. I hope you will say something to her when you feel better.

I'm sending healing thoughts your way. Hopefully you have a mild case and will be feeling better soon.

You are not being a baby! Its hurtful to not hear from a very close friend for 2 or 3 days when you are sick!

I hope your symptoms stay mild and you recover quickly!

I don't think I'd be hurt - perhaps lonely. Right now, so many people are stressed and scared and sometimes the anxiety that we're all feeling is enough to immobilize someone. It seems like a lot of people, even those who are smiling and seem carefree, are barely holding it together...

Maybe?

My BFF is the type to check in with people regularly. Sheís great about that kind of thing. Iíd not about it as much now if she didnít because sheís had surgery recently.

Iím not that type of person. Itís not that I donít care, but itís just not me.

Suppose itís all about whether or not itís out of character for your BFF or not.
