Is my African girlfriend doing magic spells on me?

am a white guy, 25 years old and I have been dating an African woman who is 27 years old for a few months. I know she is a refugee from Sudan, she has been here two years and I know things were very bad over there because of the wars. She doesn’t like talking about the past, she saw some very bad things. She is very sweet and very affectionate and seems to like me a lot. One thing she does though kind of weirds me out a little.

Twice since we have been together, I got sick. It was no big deal. I had a bad cold and then about a week ago I got some stomach flu and I was throwing up. My GF acts WEIRD when I am sick. She looks worried to death, paces around the house, covers all the mirrors with cloth (why? I dunno) burns twigs and leaves in a bowl, lights candles and basically waits on me hand and foot. She will spoon-feed me like a baby, wash me and do everything for me and not let me move until I feel better. It’s nice that she is so attentive but seriously, what is up with this?

Is this a culture thing? Is she doing some “magic” ritual? Is this what women are “supposed” to do when a man is sick in her country? Or could it just be the fact that she saw people starve and die of things like malaria when she was in Africa and she is worried about me? Can someone explain what all this means? I don’t mind being treated like a king when I am sick I just want to know WHY? Does anyone know about the culture of Sudan and why she might act this way? I already tried to ask her why but her English is not very good and all she can say is “You must get well.” and she doesn’t seem to think this is weird at all and she won’t explain why she does this. Can someone EXPLAIN this to me?
I HAVE asked her and she won’t answer other than saying “I don’t know how to say in English.” or “Please don’t worry, just rest. I make you better.” or something like this….

I live in South Africa and know that african rituals or curses are done remotely if they want be to get people to return or even revenge for something. The possibility is very good and she knows very well who is doing this. More than likely a lost love somewhere and they would not hurt her but rather get rid of the person at her side. Her dedication is a sign of knowing and some guilt. I suggest you approach her about it asking who is responsible for this and watch her reaction carefully. Love means honesty and I hope… Read more »

She is not doing any whichcraft or spells to hurt you, she is just doing it to protect you out of your illness.
Had it been she is doing it since before you were sick that could be something else.

Well I live in UK and my current girlfriend is African. She behaves in a way that you might consider strange. She’ll pour water over the threshold before leaving the house. She’ll smash eggs on the road after praying on them. She prays to fruit before eating it and her Uncle back home is a fortune teller. She’s really happy if I throw coins onto the highway and smash eggs too, which I do. I have seen bowls of water with stuff in there which she has paid fortunes for her uncle to fedex all the way to the UK… Read more »

I’m a 21 year old Sudanese girl born in Kenya. My dad is Sudanese and my mom is Ugandan. Yes Sudan was hell. Bombs, gunshots you name it. Lived in both Kenya and Sudan until I was six, then I moved here. I saw some pretty bad stuff too as a kid. I almost died a few times too. I hated it there. I never want to visit. When my dad is sick yes my mom takes care but not that extreme.I’m Christian. My dad is a pastor but we know witches are present in many African countries. People who… Read more »

some countries believe in witch doctors. White witch doctors are the good ones. black witch doctors are the evil ones. Haiti for example believes in voodoo. As for your girlfriend those are the rituals that she grew up with and they do not appears to be evil so enjoy being pampered.

I don’t feel she is doing any magic spells on you. She is just superstitious.

She sounds fantastic why complain? Make a marriage proposal or why not be straightforward and ask her yourself is she doing magic?

Covering mirrors is just a superstition, it’s supposed to protect you, the rest sounds like it’s just her praying for you to get better (unless those “twigs and leaves” are medicinal, you didn’t say what they were so IDK).

Dude, she just cares about you, and she’s trying to help you. Stop freaking and enjoy it.

Who cares if she’s doing magic rituals or reciting spells. They affect nobody because it’s all crap.
