    Yes, for the exact reason you described op. When dh is sick he just throws in the parenting towel and "rests". When I had gastro a couple of weeks ago, he literally brought me dd at 2am because she woke up and wanted me. I was vomiting at the time! Unreasonable double standards much?

    I just cannot tolerate it which sounds awful but really i wish he'd just take some initiative - ie - if you have a headache take some panadol rather than waiting hours for it to get worse.

    Plus he expects me to fetch him everything - i dont see anyone running to get me a wet facewasher etc hen im sick.
    This is my husband! He literally has no idea how to look after himself when he is sick. I have to remind him to take panadol and he looks so grateful when I get it for him, like I'm a miracle worker for going to the cupboard and getting him the tablets.

    This is one of the few ongoing sticking points in our relationship. He gets a sniffle and will literally sleep all day, while intermittently demanding homemade chicken soup. Drinks. Medication. Cool face washers. I swear I need to buy him one of those little gold bells to ring I'm sick and it's business as usual. He will help if I get narky enough. But I'm cooking dinner, hanging out clothes, often while he's at work in his defense.

    And of course he swears he gets a worse version of everything. No honey you don't. You are just a sook

    Default Anyone get angry when their husband gets sick?

    I have absolutely no sympathy for DH when he gets sick!
    Gastro went through my 3 younger daughters then right as they finished, DD1 and I caught it. I'm trying to juggle the younger ones, monitor DD1's diabetes which is a nightmare during gastro, whilst we both vomited continuously for 12 straight hours. You know where DH was? He was in bed, he thought he was going to be sick Now every single time her gets sick I say "you remember that time you had gastro" and he knows to stop complaining immediately lol. DH is having surgery in a few weeks, this shall be interesting. I may enjoy some outings and leave him home with DD4

    DH is improving I think. He used to go on about it when sick but these days he gets on with life when sick.

    He helps out when I am super sick and I do the same for him.

    He still whinges about being tired though. And falls asleep on the couch all the time.

    My husband is ALWAYS tired. He sleeps so much. On top of that, he's a shift worker meaning he sleeps even more haha. Even on day shift he comes home and has an hour nap before waking up for dinner and going back to bed haha

    I have been down for 2 weeks with rotovirus. He stayed home and used all his leave looking after me. I was shocked. He even helped cook. When he is sick I look after him too. I got a special one.

    I literally just had an argument with dh about this. He's caught s cold off da and thinks he's dying. I was at work today so he palmed DS off to his parents because he's apparently too sick. I haven't been able to get through to him today and when I finally do he's whining and moaning about a headache and I find out he can't even be bothered getting nurofen from the shop less than 5 minutes walk away! Gimme a break!! No sympathy here, Ive been sick as a dog with morning sickness and a chronic disease flare with this pregnancy, I seriously don't wanna hear it.
