A Note From My Sickbed

I have been sick all weekend, and a lot of NyQuil probably went into what I am going to type next...

After I complained that my medicine isn't working, and I still feel yucky. My husband insists that having sex would make me feel completely better and I would get well quicker.

Ladies, am I alone? Or does your husband say things like this, too?

Help me! (and send crackers and lots of tissues)

  1. No, you are not alone! :) I don't hear this about being sick as much as I hear it about PMS'ing.

  2. No, you're really not. Him: "I know what will make your throat feel better... *eyebrow waggle*" Me: *eye roll*

  3. Mine does that, too. It's been nearly 8 years, and I still haven't managed to convince him that, no, his penis does NOT actually solve all the things.

  5. Of course he does. It is almost the only time he sees me in bed outside of passed out cold hours -- 2am till 7am. =)

    1. Is it all that late-night facebooking that is keeping you up? hehe

      I know what you mean. When you are busy, it is hard to find enough hours in the day.

  6. LOL. It's a male thing. My ex used to do that. However, should the men be sick? It takes an act of God to make them feel better. Forget about sex. LOL.

  7. Men... geez...

    I'd rub my snotty tissues all over him & tell him you think its sexy. Payback.

    1. YES! This is officially the answer to the "husbands think sex cures everything" theory.

      I told Thomas that my friend Rebecca gave me a great idea ;-)

  8. Ha ha ha ha ha.

    I don't think it's an effective treatment though.

  9. It's definitely a guy thing. I really don't get it, when my husband is sick, he is in no way attractive.

  10. D'oh! Yes, yes he does. Although, we were BOTH sick this weekend. Middle girl is home sick today. So, he and I are hoping to re-connect sometime in April. Feel better, woman!

  11. Yep. That is the end-all, be-all cure for EVERYTHING according to my husband.

  12. Soo he thinks you need Peniscillin huh.. yeah typical male. In actuality he may not be too far from reality. Sex releases feel good endorphins, raise the heart rate and blood pressure, all things that can help the body fight back in a sickness way. I know I am not helping lol.

    1. Angel, I just want you to know that you are now, officially, Thomas' favorite person in the whole entire world!

      ...and I have heard the word "endorphins" about eleventy-hundred times in the last two days.

      But I still love you!

  13. They think they're so funny sometimes, don't they? :-)

  14. Okay, that's hilarious. Sorry you feel horrible - sending feel better vibes your way!

  15. Ha! In the early days back when we were crazy in love and wouldn't come up for air while kissing, either one of us might have said that! But now, lo these many years later, the mere suggestion of it while sick would not work! I wouldn't even humor him.

    1. Hehe. Funny how things change after some time passes. This summer we will have our 10-year wedding anniversary, so I know what you mean!
