Anyone else have a husband who is a baby when he is sick?

I cannot believe how much of a baby my DH is when he is even slightly sick or might even THINK he is sick.

I had a lot of boyfriends and long-term relationships before I married DH at age 31. NEVER did I meet a man who whines so much when he thinks or is slightly sick!

Am I the only one? Even my kids never act this bad!

  • I actually have the opposite problem.

    My husband treats me like a baby, or more like an helpless invalid when I'm sick. Even if it's just a slight cold, he worries far too much and treats me like an invalid.

    When he's sick, he's a trooper and doesn't take care of himself as well as he should. And he doesn't really let me take care of him, unless he is really sick.

  • Yes I do and it annoys me so very much! He can't do anything but when I'm sick he will ask "when will you have dinner ready?" He's so helpless=)
    Once we had to go to Urgent Dental bc he was certain he needed a root canal (whining for about a week) so we went late one night and sat there only to find out that he had BITTEN hi CHEEK!!!!!!

  • LOL - He actually wanted me to hold his hand while he fell asleep last night! Ridiculous! Neither one of my daughters have EVER acted that way when they were sick. He even threatened to go to his mom's house - but his head hurt too badly - if I didn't pamper him. I laughed so hard! Fine, I said - Go to your mom's house (an hour away) let her deal with the sick baby monster she created! LOL

  • Ummm... Sometimes, I think it's not so much that men can't stand pain or being sick as it is THE NURSE THING.. A lot of guys find the whole take care of me, rub my temples,---etc., etc. --- very sexy & sensual... TRUE,---it's a common fantasy... BUT,---then, some of them are just plain big babies who act like they're dying if they have a cold. While women muffle the cries of natural childbirth so they don't upset him...
