    I love lots of attention not talking and not making decisions, but I like hubby to just bring me a glass of water or rub my back to help me fall asleep. I'm the worst sick person and love butt loads of sympathy

    DH usually just wants to bw left alone. I gove him 'supplies' like meds/water/ etc etc. I check on him every few hours for foos and water refills.

    I like being alone but someone to be in the house.

    I used to get real sick with my migraines and would have to be left alone in a dark room but having children soon changed that. It's impossible to have that quiet time I required when as a mum you have to keep going when your unwell. So I went on medication for them, was the best thing I ever did, should have done it years ago. I rarely get them now and when I do they are not a quarter as bad.
    It's difficult to rest up when unwell, the kids needs don't stop.

    DH puts himself to bed for 24 hours and gets cranky if you disturb him (he is never sick for more than 24 hours).
    I am happy to be able to rest in peace, but like to be checked up on and given food, water etc.

    I much prefer being left alone. I even sleep on the couch if I'm sick, because I don't want to disturb DH with coughing/sniffling/generally being gross.

    DH respects that I like being alone, so he doesn't try to talk to me or anything, but he will randomly bring me a drink or soup or something

    I don't know what he's like when he's sick, because in the 11ish years we've been together he's never been sick. Or maybe he has, but he just gets on with life instead of dying on the couch like I do

    I'm the nurturer in our household, and when everyone gets sick they want to be waited on hand and foot But when I get sick, it's business as usual. DH and I have a good relationship but it's one of our bones of contention. I don't expect OTT pampering. Just a recognition I'm not well, a lowering of standards on the house, dinner etc, and an offer to help out as needed.

    Bc DH works in retail he tends to bring everything home, gets homemade chicken soup and gets to sleep for 4 hours during the day. Then when he is well and back to work..... I get sick. Then I'm left with a baby, running a household, 2 high maintenance older kids and a hubby now working 12 hour days to make up for the time he had off so I get no respite

    I just want dp to do all the house work, but that doesn't happen. Don't care if I'm left alone or not but a cuddle once in a while would be nice too haha

    I just want to be left alone in a dark cave to recover. If someone (DH) would just take care of DD, pets & house to leave me in peace that would be perfect.
    DH is the total opposite - he wants me to bring him medicine, rub his back blah blah blah, he is a terrible sick person.

    Default How do you like to be treated when you are sick?

    I like peace and quiet but I also like my DP to do everything around the house, well that is my dream anyways instead I'm sick and still doing it all plus sometimes I have to go to work aswell

    When dp is sick it's Manflu and he's dying lmao

    I like to be left alone. When I had surgery for an ectopic in December my bestie flew over from Boston so when I came out of hospital I could just stay alone, in my bed. I would just text her when I needed something. DH wants to be nursed and kept company. Luckily like you OP we don't get sick often!
