Is my husband a big baby when he is sick?

Anonymous

I felt bad and inconsiderate but is it okay for me to be fed up when my husband is acting like a big baby when he is “sick?” He had a tooth infection and got 1 wisdom tooth pulled. He is still in pain, which I completely understand and feel bad for him, but what I can’t stand is him wining and making pouting faces. “In sickness and in health” so how can I better deal with this. Anyone else ”coddle”their husbands when they are sick and acting needy? I’m not talking about taking care of them in the norm, I’m taking about borderline baby talk, kisses on the forehead coddling.

    Yeah, it's a no for me. He's a grown man, time to act like one.

    My husband thinks he’s on his death bed for every little sickness he has. So he whines a lot and asks me 100x a day if he should go to the ER. But nothing to the point of baby talk, kisses on the forehead and coddling. If it got to that point and I’m taking care of a toddler on top of all that then I would just grab our son and leave for a few days until he gets better lol. But yeah... he’s an adult.

    My husband is the opposite (super hardass, high pain tolerance, etc.). However, I'm the big baby when it comes to being sick. I so want him to wait on me hand and foot; he knows it and he won't. He'll oblige if I ask for a nap but he doesn't "take care" of me with normal illnesses (mastitis and kidney stones were different). I get pissed off in the moment but I get over it. Still love him and still would choose to marry him a thousand times even though he doesn't do everything exactly the way I think I want it. No one is going to die from not being doted on 😛
