Not his mother Feat Paul Cram
0:00 -:--
I feel like a terrible wife when my husband gets sick — not majorly sick, but with a run-of-the-mill cold. Men can be terrible babies when they are sick. It is a cold! He’s not dying. I happen to have a cold right now, and I am functioning just fine and not moaning and groaning about it. Also, I am not his mother! When he whines, I shut down or become touchy and crabby. If he doesn’t whine, I’m happy to take care of him, but I can’t take the time during the day to lie in bed with him (I work from home, so I am accessible to him) to keep him warm. I can’t stay up until midnight rubbing his back, and I cannot tolerate the sappy whining. I made him aware of my disdain for the way sick men behave a number of years ago, but he still acts like the world is ending when he has a cold. How do I tend to him without feeling resentful? — NOT HIS MOTHER ConfessionRadio Twitter: @ConfessionRadio Facebook: ConfessionRadio Webs:
