Ugh....I hate it when DH is not feeling well. I actually just think that it is mostly a lack of sleep from our "vacation," coupled with seasonal allergies. Whatever. He is sicker than anyone has EVER been. NO ONE is sicker than he is. I did make him a pot of chicken and rice soup and have been basically trying to keep my mouth shut.

And what is it with men not wanting to take meds? DH would rather moan and groan about a headache than to take something for it.

LOL!! When my husband would get a cold he would say the same thing, and then tell me, "You better call the kids"!! OMG, they are just a bigger version of the kids, LOL

My sympathies. I'd find things to do away from home. I have no patience for it.

The kids and I are getting ready to go to Sunday evening church service. I feel like asking if I should put him on the prayer list.

I hear ya, sister! My DH is the same way. I was at a crop all weekend and not one single thing got done because DH isn't feeling so hot. I hate it when he's sick.

I love that NyQuil "man cold" commercial. They hit the nail on the head with that one.

I hate when DH has even a simple cold. You would think he was on his death bed! Good luck with your DH.

Oh no! The only cure for the man cold is multiple doses of sympathy. Of which I have no patience for. I'm a horrible nurse and worse when it is the worst man cold ever.

I don't have boys, but when do they learn this? And whom do they learn this from?

Uh Oh! Have you set up a support network yet? Ear plugs on hand to avoid listening to the whining? Supply of wine to get through the next few days? hahaha Hope he feels better soon, more for you than for him.

I've gotten to the point with my DH that anytime he's dying of a cold, headache, whatever....I ask "have you taken anything?" if he answers no, then my mean bitch nurse comes out and says take something or shut up!

Now, he will say "honey can you bring me some medicine?"....... Like I'm a MD and know what he needs. I think I've created a monster and it's my own danged fault!

LOL! I could've been the OP!! I'm at the point that I just give my DH some medicine and go in the other room. Of course he will not go in the bedroom, he has to lay on the couch and make everyone else miserable too!!

Put the meds in a spoonful of chocolate pudding. Then say, hey honey you want a bite. It works for toddlers, it could work for whiny men. Then he will miraculously feels better. LOL!!

Hee, Hee! While we were at church (where DH should have been, but he was SOOOOO SICK) he started rummaging in our over-full pantry and managed to knock the maple syrup off the shelf and onto the floor. He said that it spilled everywhere! He did a pretty good job of cleaning it up, but a few places are sticky and the kitchen smells like syrup. So, instead of being able to lounge around on the couch, he had to clean up syrup!

Oh, my, mine "takes to his bed" and stays there! I heap on the sympathy! I think his mother was cold and he probably never got any as a child. After a couple of days he re-emerges but still moans around for another week!

Why are men so pitiful when they are sick? My husband probably calls me Nurse Ratched because I am so unsympathetic, I don't like whiny children, whiny husbands are even worse!

I am going to have to watch for the Man cold commercial, I haven't seen it.

I am glad I am not the only one. We should start a support group!

Amen! Yet why is it when I go to take something when I need it, suddenly it's all gone and nobody has told me?! Let alone offer to run get me some...
