Have a significant other, who doesn't help you or take care of you when your sick?

Everytime I get sick, I have to beg him to get medicine, pick up around or daughter, or anything. He doesn't ask me if I need anything, he doesn't check on me, if I'm laying down. He argues with me when I ask him for anything! When it's him, of course he expects to be treated like a baby. I have been sick for two weeks, and not one time has he done anything, but call me bitchy. I constantly have to call my mom to bring me soup and gatorade, and medicine, because he want do it without a struggle.

  • You are not the only one. I had this fight with my DH tonight. I pulled a muscle in my neck last night and today can't move my neck or left shoulder/arm without a great amount of pain. I asked him to bathe the kids and he came up with every excuse not to help and then just started yelling and went to bed-at 7. I need to sleep and if not sleep sit still-but no I had to do everything with the kids tonight-while in horrible pain. If I am sick hurt or when I had surgery a few months ago-i have to ask neighbors, friends and my mom for help. It is bad when everyone around us asks how they can help if I am sick or after my surgery bc they all knew he was not going to watch the kids or help me. I love him-but not when I am sick.

  • sorry to hear that. It's makes me scared to have anything really bad happen to be, like a long term illness. I don't think I would put up with it. I agree it's pretty sad when family members help, knowing he's around.
