That is tough!

Why is it that men just CANNOT seem to handle being sick?! Seriously, not trying to be mean, but they are the BIGGEST babies (don’t tell hubby I said that 😉 Mine probably would have done the same thing about not wanting to go to urgent care. It’s so frustrating isn’t it?!

I’m sorry the fun you were planning on having might end up being compromised by your guy’s sinus infection. Hopefully though he will still understand if you want to go out and be with your friends for awhile! Maybe he can just use that time to rest & try to get better faster.

Try not to let it get you too upset though. After all, you are going to get to see your  family for the first time in over a year!

I am so sorry! Have you tried sitting down with him and explaining how much this trip means to you and how going to urgent care would really help out? Some guys see sickness as weakness and he may not realize how his sickness will hold you both back on your trip. 

My boyfriend is the same way. Last year he left his old job for a new one. One of the biggest selling factors of the new job was that it had medical insurance, however he hasn’t went to the doctor at all over the year. He won’t go unless something horrific happens like he chops his finger in two pieces. It’s like they think they are flawed if they have to see the doctor! *Sigh* It’s hard to understand their mindset sometimes. Best of luck to you, and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas in spite of it all. 🙂

… you need to MAKE him go to urgent care. Serious, sinus infections can get pretty serious, and flying is going to make his head hurt SO bad. Plus I totally feel you on the wanting your trip to be fun since you haven’t been home in so long!

Hi date twin! Sorry your FI is sick. I’ve gotten sick on holidays in the past and it is NOT FUN. I think you can still have a great time at home though. I know it would have been fun to include your FI in everything, but the main reason to visit home is so you can see your family and friends, right?

If I were you, I would let him take it easy and take advantage of the time to catch up with family and friends. Maybe even bring someone else to the wedding appts if he doesn’t feel up to going. Choose a couple of events that you really really would like him to be at (family Christmas dinner, an outing with your friends, etc) and ask him to make an effort just for these.

I agree with everyone else… try to get him to go to urgent care!  I have (unfortunately) flown with a sinus infection and it’s absolutely miserable.  I wish I could have gone to a doctor before getting on the flight because some medicine would have made it more bearable, but we were traveling home from overseas and it just wasn’t an option. Good luck!!

If he won’t go to urgent care, get him to do a saline sinus rinse and take some Mucinex DM. It’ll seriously help.

Get your FI a nasal rinse kit and Tylenol sinus!  That should help him to feel better.  Good luck!
