If your spouse doesn't try to help when you are sick...

Why are you with them?

Don't get me wrong I don't have one of those eager sallys who come home and automatically starts to clean up.  He'll do something if I ask him to.

But when I'm sick he might not be nurse nightengale, but he certainly picks up the slack.

I can't imagine waking up sick and tired and telling my husband and he says "tough" and rolls back over and goes back to sleep.

You do look like the girl who played Alice in Wonderland in the live-action version!

 My husband does his best to help me out when I am sick. He's not perfect, but the effort is appreciated.

Because he has work and can't skip it because I'm sick. He's helpful when he gets home.

My husband is great at helping if I don't feel well. Which he also knows that if I'm sick and he refuses to get out of bed that I will quite literally kick him out of it.

Yea, if you couldn't tell from my OP where he rolls back over and goes to sleep.

Not exactly what I was talking about.

I don't think a spouse should take off work.. unless its major.

I know right. LOL i can't imagine having a migraine that would actually lay me out, me telling him and him rolling over and going back to bed.

I'd probably go to jail that day.
