Does your spouse revert to a child when they get sick?

My husband has a cold, poor baby. "Baby my nose won't stop running", "Baby my throat hurts", "Baby should I drink some orange juice?" This is want I am hearing. When I do not feel good, I still clean the house, cook, wash the clothes. But my poor husband is non functional when he has a cold or is not feeling good. I sympathize with him not feeling well, but it's just a cold. Do you have one of these around your house when they are not feeling well, male or female?

I am not married, but I have had a boyfriend like that before. It was cute at first, but after awhile it got annoying. I mean I feel bad for him and all being sick, but suck it up man! When I don't feel well I just want people to leave me alone.

Aww, I bet it isn't so fun for you, but I would love to pamper a grown man like that. I think I would go so far as to say I would find it hot. I get a day of cramps every month, and I just lay in bed and writhe and moan and don't even do anything. Not that I do much when I'm not in pain. But I don't really think I would mind taking care of a sick person as long as there was no vomiting. I hate when people vomit. If someone near me mentions the word "nauseous" I run and I never come back. I don't want to hear it, I don't want to smell it, I don't want to see it.

I am sometimes like that when I got sick. I have this kind of thinking that sometimes men would unconsciously invited sickness to their body so that they can feel love from their wives. Although this hypothesis is not yet proven, but if you will try to learn from our behaviors when we will be sick, you can always conclude that hubby likes to be treated as a kid. Maybe you should try to spend some time with him. Quality time perhaps. In this way, he will not be inviting sickness. And also, when we do say like that, we really mean it.

I understand what you are saying, and thank you for responding. My husand does not usually get sick, and we spend time together every day. I guess when he is not feeling well, he needs more of my attention. My husband is the type who says "Baby what should I wear?"

Not really as my husband tends to be quiet or crabby when he's sick lol that's why i give him food or medicine then i go to our room to watch tv coz he's crabby. LOL maybe your husband just wants more TLC from you...
