No sympathy...

  1. So, I'm sitting here listening to my darling partner coughing his lungs up in the bathroom and I just want to go tell him to shut the **** up!!
    He's had this cough for about 2 weeks and at first I was full of sympathy, running him hot eucalyptus baths, getting him cough medicine, fetching him hot drinks but now I just want to smack him with something and tell him to quit it!!
    Worse thing is I think its probably my fault because Im making soap and bathbombs and I tink its the smell thats going for him but I just dont care anymore, he has to just STOP IT NOW!!!!
    He doesnt even cough properly!!
    Thats better, ranting at you means I wont go rant at him and spoil his angelic image of me!!LOL

    Ive just read my post again and realised that Ive made myself sound like a total witch! Im not, honestly....well sometimes but not often!

    Im going to have to go make up for it now and make some lemon and honey tea for him...that'll teach me to rant..

    That coughin can get awfully annoying. Time to get the Robitussin with Codeine prescription.

    After 2 weeks of coughing, maybe a trip to the doctor is in order? Plus the Robitussin with codeine won't hurt!!
    You know, maybe it is witchy, but I know where you're coming from.

    When my hubby is the sickest his cough is loud and barky and literally p*sses me off! It's like, if you're not gonna do the bright thing and see a ******* doctor, then shut the hell up!

    I don't think you're witchy either. When I have a really bad cough I sleep on the couch, so I won't bother him by coughing all night. Yet when he has a cough, do you think he could do the same for me? No, I end up on the couch again so I can get some freaking peace and quiet. Give him something that will knock him OUT, like Nyquil, a double dose!
    I hear ya hoolahan! No matter what's wrong with my hubby, I tell him some Nyquil and 50mg of Benadryl is what he needs. I don't know if it helps him, but it sure makes me feel better.

    When my husband starts the coughing I tell him either go get that purple cough medicine or face the consequences
