let me start by saying dh is NEVER sick, he maybe gets sick every 1-2 years so when it happens, it's horrible....for everyone. he called off work this morning so he could go to the doctor. so when i woke up i immediately called our doctor to try and get him in today. here's the problem. because nothing ever happens to him health wise (lucky bastard) he has had no reason to visit the doctor since we received our insurance 6 months ago. so when i called the doctor dd and i go too they told me because he's a new patient they cannot get him in for 2 weeks. so i set myself on a mission to find another in-network doctor that could take him today. needless to say 45 min and 26 (seriously, no exaggeration) phone calls later i am right where i started. here is why i'm aggravated, other than being shot down by doctor after doctor for 45 min: my dh is being a complete baby. he is the BIGGEST baby when he's sick, which considering how little it happens I can kind of understand but still. i have fetched him medicine, food, water, etc all day yesterday and this morning. i have been nothing but sweet to him trying to make sure he felt loved and when i tell him i'm going to go do a 15 min yoga workout he responds with "what if i need something?" i tell him it can wait 15 min to which he responds with "this is extremely selfish of you." UGHHHHH!!!! i have a very small window to get a workout in while dd eats breakfast and it's only 15 min! needless to say i may have told him to go f*** himself. i hate when he's sick, he is worse than our toddler. whining, moping, grumpy, an all around pain in my butt but i still love him and i still want to take care of him...unless he acts like a prick. and all of this on top of the fact that i decided to quit smoking yesterday. up until now, i have not had a single craving but thanks to this stressful morning i'm literally fighting to keep myself from going outside and inhaling the sweet deadly nectar that could possibly stop me from suffocating my dh with his favorite pillow. all i can say is thank god for chewing gum.
does anyone else have an SO like this? how do you keep from killing them? lol
