QUIT WHINING!

I am at my breaking point with my husband. He whines all the freaking time anymore. His knees hurt, his back hurts, this person won't do this and it's driving me nuts. For the last week it's been his knee and I want to tell him that if he hadn't played football in high school then his knees wouldn't hurt today. Sometimes he uses this pain to get sympathy from his boss to get sent home. He sent me a text not long ago that said that his bosses want him to go home and that I should be proud of him for saying no. Um no. Just no.

I hurt all of the effing time, but I'm not trying to leave work early. All I want is for him to suck it up. 

ETA: To the people who keep responding to this. This was over a week ago. I was stressed, in a lot of pain myself, and very frustrated. This was to vent so that I didn't look at him and say things that didn't mean. If you think I'm horrible or self centered okay that is your opinion of one vent that I have made in this forum. You don't know him, myself, or what our marriage is like. This week his knee and back are feeling better, but now his stomach is bothering him and he keeps running a fever (so he says).

He is also going to start taking a supplement to help with his joints.

Eh, I hurt in my shoulders, knees and back and I haven't said anything to anyone all day, lol. It is part of life, we get older, our bodies ache, it is what it is.

My point exactly. The other day it was a constant text after text that his knee hurt. I told him that he was really whiney. I got home and he was really butt hurt about it.

He doesn't take meds correctly and they end up not working as they are supposed to. He will take too much at once and his body adapts to it quickly. He actually made himself really sick with one of them due to poor use.

Post surgery is totally understandable. He had surgery on his knee almost 20 years ago.

Good luck when they have pain or a cold, you have to look up at the sky and say this whining will end...one day, stay strong.

Lol anymore I call him on it every once in awhile. If I don't I'll kill him.
