    How many of you have husbands who love to lie around on the couch whining about how lousy they feel, but absolutely refuse to go to the doctor?

    Mine won't consider going to the bedroom; he has to camp out in the living room so everyone in the house can suffer with him!

    Mine would get boothed to the bedroom and I will sleep in my sewing studio. I have a house full with kids and I will not accept it if he is inconsiderate and gives it to everyone. I tread him good. Make him a nice little nest to sleep and bring him tea etc.

    Sounds like mine! I love him dearly, but when he gets sick everyone suffers. Fortunately he is very rarely sick.

    Sounds like a normal man to me. I have never figured out why when they are sick we are suppose to wait on them hand and foot plus feel sorry for them but when we are sick it's like yeah so what. We are suppose to keep right on going. When mine gets that way I tell him either go to the doctor or quit your whining I've got things to do. They are such babies. LOL.

    Mine, you would never know he is sick. Heck, he was going to go to work when he thought he hurt his back, I insisted he get it checked out by the doctor and good thing I did. Turned out he had a collapsed lung, had to have surgery and was in the hospital for 2 weeks. Still, when he came home, no complaining.

    Are they like that because they remember their mommies taking care of them? And of course, no one can replace their mommy. They say men look for their mothers in their future wives. I think the first thought that comes to their minds when choosing a future partner is, will she take care of me when I am sick? Sure we will. Get your jammies on, get in bed, here is a bell if you need anything. I will be in my sewing studio. Sorry if I don't always hear the bell.

    I remember when we first got married and he got sick and refused to go to the doctor. I told him to go lie in the bed and die if he didn't go to the Dr. because I wasn't gonna listen to his whining. He went to the room and came out 10 minutes later wanting to go. Turned out he had pneumonia. I know it sounded mean but it worked and 20 years later he still knows not to whine if he doesn't want to go to the Dr.

    Do I have one of the rare breed? I know if he asks to go to the dr or the emergency room then something serious is up. And we've had six of these visits in the last two weeks. He knows not to whine, cos I tae no notice. And our son's the same way.

    I totally agree! Mine is going through that stage now. Like it's only about him. Luckily I don't have any children at home so I can just ignore his whining when it gets bad.

    Mine is a real trooper when it comes to the big stuff, shoulder surgeries, thyroid cancer. Let him get a cold or flu and he moans and groans, tells me every 5 minutes, he's going to die any minute.

    My husband hardly ever gets sick. He doesn't even notice it when he does feel bad, and I only notice it because when his nose is stuffy he snores something fierce, which never happens otherwise. I told him if he finds me in another bed in the morning it's because of his snoring!

    Sounds like many men. Just make him a doctors appointment. Then if he refuses to go, tell him then he must not really be sick.

    My DH is suffering with back pain right now due to a kidney stone. Now don't think I know about kidney pain because I had kidney disease when I was 21 and had to have a kidney removed when I was 22. Well, he's the only person on this earth who has ever suffered and he's like that no matter what the pain or illness. I have heard passing a kidney stone is terribly painful, and it's more painful for men than women. So when he passes this thing I hope I'm far, far away if that's true.

    Three times mine got sinus infections and hold up in the room without allowing food or drink or Dr. until he got so bad that I had to take him to the ER for rehydrating. The fourth time he started I told him if he went into the "refuse mode" I would let him die. I would not put up with that again. He either went to the Dr. and did what they told him or I would collect his life insurance. He has not done that again. MEN!!!

    I'm lucky mine stays in bed. Years ago, I use to say that I would rather be sick with 2 sick kids than to have DH sick all by himself. So needy and helpless. Fortunately, he doesn't get sick often!

    I'm lucky I guess, mine seldom if ever whines. If he's sick, I baby him a little and if its me, he takes care of me too.

    Its nice to feel loved when you don't feel good.
