This morning the hubby says to me, "I'm sick."

I say, "Really? What's wrong?" (when I really mean, "Oh you are, are you? Wait one second, this normally goes the other way.")

"Yes, my back hurts, also my head and my tummy."

"You poor baby, let me rub your back." ("and maybe if I do, you will stop waking me up and asking me to do it every hour.")

"oooh, ahhh, more, there, higher, lower, put more pressure, use your knuckles."

"sure sweetie" ("I'm givin' ya all I've got!") eventually I stop rubbing cause I'm tired.

"My head still hurts, can I get some water?"

"Yes sweetie I'll bring you some, do you want some toast too?" ("and next time I ask you to go out into the cold part of the house to get me food will you?")

So I go make myself some toast for breakfast.

"Can I have some of that? It smells good"

"yes, here" ("even though I asked you if you wanted some BEFORE I made it. P.S. I also expect you to clean the house, even though you are clearly not feeling well.")

"my back still hurts, will you rub it some more?"

"yes" ("I have absolutely zero idea how you feel ... none whatsoever ...")

yeah, so he spent the entire day in bed, like I do, not cleaning the house, like I don't. lucky jerk gets to recover and feel better though ... :(

That was so cute, I like how you added your thoughts into it. They sure can be babies when they don't feel good. It cracks me up. lol...

I will actually say most of that to him tomorrow when he's feeling better. Non-fibromites just don't get it when you tell them you didn't do the dishes because it hurt to stand up.

My hubby is like that at times. Except he will be up and moving around and keep whining about how he hurts and stuff and then he goes out and works on a car or his friend's boat or something, and then he comes home and complains even more about how he is hurting. And I keep thinking to myself, Ok. If you hurt so much all the time, why don't you go see your doctor instead of whining and complaining? LOL. I really loved how you added your thoughts in. That was great.
