Problems with my husband again.

  1. As some of you may have noticed, I have been away for about a week. I had what I thought was a cold, but wound up in bed for several days with bronchitis. I missed four days of work, and literally could not get out of bed. My husband was horrible to me the entire time. Oh, he did all the superficial things like making me tea and chicken soup, bringing ice packs for my headache, helping me to the bathroom, and making sure I got my tylenol and antibiotics, but would not do what I really needed. He absolutely would not bring me the laptop so I could talk with you guys while I was laid up. After 33 years with this man, I had no idea he could be so heartless. Just because I got weak and dizzy when I tried to sit up, he thought I should not be on the computer. What do you guys think? Should I forgive him?

    Wouldn't bring you your laptop!
    You just might need to re-think things with this guy!
    If nothing else then it sounds like he's in line for a BIG SMACK!

    Oh Definately DIVORCE COURTS:roll :roll :roll

    Hope you feel better.

    I did manage to get hubby to bring in laptop when I was in hospital but he disabled the net- like you I was not too pleased.

    BUT THEN there are some "other halfs" who wouldn't make you soup etc.

    SO perhaps it's swings and roundabouts

    This is grounds for divorce. I cannot believe the unmitigated GALL of that man not allowing you to log on to chat with us during your period of confinement. Appalled. Appalled I am.

    Same thing here, have pneumonia, R lobe. Took the day off work, took me to the hospital, got the meds ( $66 for Rulide, alphamox and Fenac!! how rude!!) Even made me some green tea but do ya think he'd bring in the computer??? Not a chance!! But we can't get a divorce - can't figure out who has to take the boys and who gets a life..... ahh well only another twenty years to go....

    This is so funny. When our kids were little, we used to joke that if one of us wanted to leave, that person had to take all six kids. I guess that's why we stayed married so long. Neither one of us wanted to be alone with "those people."

    Get rid of him- didn't he also ruin your pizza with crappy cheese? How much can you be expected to take?

    Does he have all his teeth and what are they like? Just wonderin' in case he needs someplace to stay for awhile.(grin)

    Oh yeah... he's the guy who does the shopping and wants to keep you healthy... probably he wants to keep you around to torture for a LONG time! It's just sadistic! Hmmmm sadistic... Hmmm

    Hang in there...WAIT (Before you guys throw the eggs at me!!!!)

    Its been 33 years! That is MAJOR time invested! There has GOT to be something this man has done right for him to have deserved 33 years of your life. And hell...You DO NOT want to enter the dating scene nowadays. It doesn't exist! (Well, I guess Delirium's got it going on over there [wink])...but otherwise dating was abducted and has yet to be found!)

    Rebel, I hear what you're saying but this is cruel and unusual punishment. It is damn near bordering on abuse. I am considering calling Allnurses Protective Services on behalf of RNinICU.
