I don’t think you’re being wrong at all

He doesn’t have any idea what’s wrong and is refusing to go to the doctor?  That’s just scary!

Keep hounding him.  This is HIS LIFE on the line!!!!  Not to mention his job could be compromised too.  FI refuses to go get his moles checked out, so I’m planning on pulling out the waterworks and say things like “What will I do if you die of skin cancer” or something…mean? maybe…I don’t care.

I think when you are in a relationship, you are obligated to take care of yourself even more than if you were on your own! It was actually in our vows that we would do that for one another.

There are a lot of very bad things that could be, and if he’s still sick more than 24 hours later, not a lot of not bad things that could be.

I would definitely say go to the doctor.

You are not wrong in the least!

When DH had chest pains a year or so ago, it took me 3 hours to convince him to go to the emergency room. I said “if you aren’t going to do this for you, do it for me!” and he finally went.

I hope he’s ok!

The last time I forced my husband to go to the hospital they kept him for 3 days as his KIDNEYS were in the beginning stages of shutting down.

So yeah. Have the biggest hissy fit in the world if that’s what it takes for him to go. He should also know that if he has a doctor’s note his company legally can’t do anything.

You aren’t being wrong AT ALL! He is being stubborn at a time he should not be. He NEEDS to go to the doctor, prob an emergency room if he’s still running a fever. I hope he will listen to you and go and I really hope he’s ok.

You aren’t wrong. Tell him that even if he doesn’t care about his health for his own sake, he owes it to YOU to keep himself healthy to the best of his ability. You need a partner who will make sure that he is the strongest and healthiest he can be.

This might be totally wrong, but my husband didn’t go to the doctor for a long time because he was afraid of what he would find out, and how that would affect his life.  He was also afraid of doctors judging him.  I don’t know if that’s a factor here, but it might be something to keep in mind. When DH finally did go, he found out he was borderline diabetic. He has since changed his diet and exercise habits radically, lost 80 lbs, and feels better than he had in years.

As someone who hates doctors and who avoids them at all costs, I think he needs to seek medical attention. I flat out refuse to go to the doctor unless I’m bleeding profusely or in uncontrollable pain, however, if I passed out then started throwing up, I’d probably take it as a sign to get checked out.

@Corilee13: I’m glad he called the doctor, keep us posted on how he is doing and I hope he’s on the mend soon.
