A.

You should not want your boyfriend to depend on you as a way to keep him around. Your boyfriend should want to be around you and not just stay with you because you do favors for him. Secondly, what good man would get angry with you because you were too ill not do what he requested of you? The answer is simply: no good and decent man. You did not mention what favor he asked you to do but whatever it was, he could have been more considerate of the fact that you were sick. Hopefully, this was a one time event because if this is his standard everyday behavior, you should seriously consider getting a new, more thoughtful and understanding boyfriend. Good luck.
