Yeah, haha.  My Darling Husband is the same way.

Ugh. Darling Husband can be a whiny pain when he’s “sick.” It definitely seems like when we get the same bug, he’s incapable of managing without having a breakdown while I just try to tough it out or sleep it off. What’s with that? 😏

They may be like that at home, but in the ER we have all experienced that, as a generalization,  men don’t come in to the hospital until they are next to dead.

This would be my Darling Husband currently. He woke up like he was dying a slow death. Gotta love men. 🙂

My husband gets SO mad at me because I pretty much tell him to suck it up when he’s sick. He does get ill far more than I do for whatever reason. I don’t know how I got blessed with such a phenomenal immune system but hooray for it. That’s probably why I roll my eyes when he gets sick.

Ugh, mine is the same way, but I’m past finding it cute. I think it’s super annoying. Take some emergen-c and quit whining, dude.

I wonder if this is just every man ever lol

I found myself at Shoppers Drug Mart at 3:30am this morning with a big manbaby on my hands at home. He doesn’t get sick often so when he does we’re talking Whiner Level: Expert. I haven’t gotten sick of playing caregiver yet though, so this uncommon vulnerable state of his totally makes me melt 😊

Nah, mine’s an annoying trooper. He overly takes care of me when I’m sick though!

Ugh, my hubby is a giant of a baby when he’s sick. I think he literally thinks death is imminent when he gets a stuffy nose LOL

Mine is pretty good when he gets sick but he is a clutz and when he walks into something he always yells and carries on.. super annoying!

My SO gets very whiney when sick, too.  I get whiny but I mostly just wanted to be left alone to fend for myself.  BUT, when I am sick he is SUPER attentive and will do pretty much anything I ask, so there is a hidden benefit.

My Darling Husband is unstoppable when sick. He barely acknowledges it and I’ve seen him with full on flu and exhaustion after working for a month in africa. He is SO resiliant to the point where it scares me. As in I will never be certain how sick he really is. Still, he’s never a whiny baby so I guess thats a good thing!
