My DH can't seem to handle it when I am sick. He gets irritated because the house is messy and makes little comments that drive me nuts. Usually, I can handle it fine, but not when I am sick.
He spends a weekend with his mom every six weeks or so. If I am sick during that time (and that does happen with two small boys), he gets irritated and tells me I always pick a fight when he goes to visit his mom. But I am not irritated that he is visiting his mom. I am just irritated because I am sick and have very little patience. (That just goes to show that he thinks everything is about him.)
The truth is that I LIKE it when he leaves. At least, I can be sick alone and he is not kicking me when I am down.
What can I do to get him to leave me alone when I am sick? I think I am going to start checking into a hotel with my boys when I am sick, but I am afraid that he is just going to be madder. (He won't care about the money, but he will say that I am a bad mom for taking the kids with me. I would leave them, but he won't let me do that either because he works and likes to do things without the kids. I am a SAHM and I do just about all of the childcare). Any solutions?
