If you are sick, does your SO help out around the house while you rest or are you still expected to do everything?

  • My dh will take care of everything when I am sick. However, he helps me on a daily basis, so it's just normal for us.

  • If I'm sick. Even if it is just the flu or a cold. My husband takes care of everything, and does nothing but pamper and baby me (to the point of annoyance at times... lol).. He takes time off from work, and he does everything and anything for me.

  • When he can. He woks so much I'm pretty mush on my own but when he's home he's great and lets me sleep all day and takes care of me and the kids.

  • He helps when he can. He can rarely take off work though, but I understand that. I actually have the flu now. I still get up with the kids, do meals during the day and chores. As well as teach, then he will take over when he gets home and I am hitting the Night Quil, and going to bed!! lol

  • I still do everything, unless Im sick to the point where I couldnt get out of bed even if I wanted to.. Then I will call a family member to come over and help out (like my sister).. Because he doesnt like to take my son to work, even though he could if he wanted, but he doesnt like having to "chase him around all day"

  • If I am really bad off, he'll help, but for the most part, I take care of it all myself. Guess that's why I take longer to get better because I don't rest like I should when I'm sick. DH on the other hand is a complete wuss when he's sick.

  • Hmmm, if I'm sick, I either still have to take the munchkin to daycare so I can rest and only miss a little bit of work, or keep her and snuggle and watch movies while mommy gets better. Either way, I still pretty much do everything!

  • I usually still do everything. Unless I am totally down and out.
