Husband/wife becomes sick for a few days and the partner kicks it up a notch to help them get better. Be it taking meds, food, water to them in bed to help recover! Even special deliveries to cheer them up!!!
NOW husband/ wife becomes sick with disease that affects their family and life. This is what I have noticed and am just curious if others have noticed the same
When the husband gets sick the partner usually gets the details of the sickness, what's involved, how we can help either by diets, exercise or whatever. We usually research the topic to death lol 😂
NOw the wife gets sick and the partner will do things for abit but hopes things will get back to normal soon or just forgets after awhile your sick. Or at least that's maybe their way of coping.
I can only speak from my personal experiences and what I have seen with friends and family. I have watched this with my parents who are still alive at 86 & 85.
My mom has had cancer, hip surgery, 2 knee replacements and just had hernia operation last week This has all happened in the last 9 yrs us girls always went up to help because she doesn't get the same care and stayed for awhile. My dad has had bypass surgery 10 yrs ago had a hip replacement 12 yrs ago We also went up to help but didn't have to stay as long because mom was looking after him. Otherwise pretty healthy and stubborn lol (did I mention my dad is British)
BUt interesting to see what others think and do. To get a different view would be nice. To maybe understand the other side and what your going thru as you are as well but differently I am sure. MY husband just figures if he doesn't speak about it, maybe will go away. But he knows it won't! I want to talk about it a lot. That's how I feel he thinks anyways...
thanks for your input!!
