Talk: Tell her how you feel, & focus on yourself and your feelings or she may become defensive or just shut down. You may feel rejected or unwanted because she isn't initiating physical contact. Physical contact is important to any intimate relationship. Ask her if everything is ok. Maybe she is depressed or has low self esteem. Keep an open line of communication during good and bad times.
Dr. Peter Forster
Psychiatry 36 years experience
Ask: There are many possibilities. Maybe she is shy, or had a bad experience, or is upset about something... The worst thing to do is to get upset about it without asking her. That will mean that when you do end up asking you will be upset and the conversation will not go as well as it might.

Some patients will have kidney involvement & blood or protein in the urine & pain or swelling can be worrisome. Most cases will self heal over a few weeks & require only observation & pain management. Followup aimed monitoring kidney status is routine.

Why is it more difficult for an eighty year old woman to recover from the flu than a thirty year old?

Dr. Luis Villaplana
Internal Medicine 35 years experience
WHEN YOU ARE 80,: You typically are dealing with aging related conditions like heart disease and diabetes, just to mention the 2 most common. Chronic medical conditions tend to make your immune system a bit more sluggish at times. The good news is, over 80 years you have been exposed to a lot more bugs than someone in their 30's, so your immune "memory cells" have been programmed and are ready to minimize problems.
