    Default My sick huband is driving me nuts!!!!!!

    OK, I need to get this off my chest. My husband has been sick for a couple of days with what I believe is a common cold, or possible allergies. He has a sore throat, congestion and headache. He's tried tons of medicine (advil, aleve, nyquil, all the cold/allergy meds) and claims none of them work. Here's my complaint.....the man kept me up all night last night moaning and groaning. He flipped and flopped in the bed, trying to get the point across that he feels miserable. He would roll over right in my face and moan outloud. Are you kidding me!?!?!?! I been through three labor and deliveries and I didn't make this much noise! He would go into the bathroom at 3am and turn the light on (to insure that I was awake and listening) and hack and cough as hard as he could to try and cough up lord-knows-what. And let me tell you my husband is normally a tough man. He's a state trooper and a couple of years ago was hit by a car while helping someone change a tire on the side of the highway. He didn't complain HALF as much about that as he has about this freaking cold!
    And after all of this, he has the nerve to ask me why I'm tired this morning! Lord give me the strength not to strangle him!

    I'm the man in the house. Sigh, I have to admit, I'm guilty of being the baby when sick... lol.

    This has been discussed deeply in my house and the conclusion has been that discomfort is absolute torture, while pain is completely tolerable to me and I'm sure your husband as well... lol. I'm in the military, have deployed multiple times, been injured I can't count how many times, but boy oh boy, when I have the sniffles! Thankfully, I get babied at home... lol.

    You are NOT the only one. My hubby turns the common cold, or allergies into life and death. I just had a kidney infection most the part of last week (at times hurting as much as Id say a 7 which is high for my tolerance level, and funny I might say it hurts or something and his reaction is minimal but if he blows his nose or breathes hard we all know it. Cracks me up. I think there are men who do not do this but they are few in numbers. MEN!

    don't get me started on man flue in my house
    My husband is a nightmare! my eldest son (now left home) was worse and my youngest son!?! Well......he's learning.

    however I feels I must defend them...not as a wife or mum but as a nurse.
    you see I work on a busy Gastroenterology Acute Medicine ward. we have both Male and Female patients.
    I would nurse a man over a woman anyday of the week.
    Women are a nightmare in hospital they are more likely to get PIP (pyjama induced paralysis)
    Nurse this!! Nurse that!! Nightmare
    men, on the other hand could not be nicer, I'll do that nurse, no its ok nurse I can manage (even when you know they can't)
    Male patients are more likely to say please, thankyou and try very hard to make you happy.
    me I love nursing men but NOT my husband but then I have a great excuse when he accuses me of not caring...
    ...I'm not at work now hunny

    First off, thankyou for what you do to keep us all safe at home. God bless you and your family.
    Second, you make a very valid point about discomfort VS pain! LOL!! My hubby gets off duty and will have bruises on his arms and legs and have NO CLUE how they got there. He's come home from firearms practice with a gash on his hand that should have gotten stitches and never once complained. And I already mentioned the "getting hit by a car" nightmare. And all of those are PAINFUL, so therefore tolerable to him I guess. Well, maybe I should let up a little then. I used to baby him too....until a few years ago when we hit the 10 year mark (and three kids later) and I decided that if I can take care of myself then he can do the same!
    Alright, you win......I'll go upstairs and see if I can get him anything. You men!

    Nice! Glad I could support a fellow member of the grunting gender... lol. In all seriousness though, I honestly feel as though this whole scherade is a subconcious test of the unknown love language that differs vastly between everyone. You'll see, a little baby time and he'll start to feel better in a jiff!

    Yeah I had a husband like that............ that is pretty much why he is now my ex-husband and lives back with Mom...
    On top of that....... have a fabulous man in my life now who takes care of ME (I have PCOS and endometriosis) and is hardly ever sick at all..

    stop!!! Do not let this man con you into thinking theyre different and need babying they are soooo good at that thats why we love them so much its infuriating
    I don' scream like a baby when I cut my hand on the potato peeler or burn myself on the oven, again.
    I stem the bleedin and put on a plaster, or cool my burn under the cold tap.
    I don't huff and puff in bed cos my restless leg syndrome is kicking in and wont let me rest.
    NO! I quietly get up, reach for my gown and tiptoe downstairs to watch TV till my legs are ok, so that my husband can get some sleep.

    @FridayGt you are so crafty convincing us to baby our boys... but :bust:

    @FridayGt You brought up a very interesting concept, I think that makes total sense! I think that same thing applies to ALOT of men!

    I send the old man packing to another bedroom if he starts to interrupt my sleep. I would do the same for him. We have an equal opportunity bedroom when someone is sick.

    My husband is famous for telling me he's not sick "but I just have the feeling like there's something in the my throat." Well, yeah, that's called a sore throat and you get one during the onset of a cold of flu!
