I don't know about y'all, but when I'm sick, I want to be left alone. I want to sleep and not be bothered. If I'm throwing up, I don't need an audience or someone holding my hair (although once when I worked as a 911 dispatcher, my Sgt held my hair for me because I was puking and dispatching calls at the same time, but if I'm anywhere else leave me alone).
In my experiences, men (can we really call them that though when they're sick?? Maybe more like something that rhymes with "wussies") revert to being little babies when they're not feeling well. It is probably one of the most annoying and unmanly things they do.
Call me mean if you want, but when an adult male is sick (throwing up), he needs to take care of himself. There is nothing we can do to make it better for him. They are old enough to run to the bathroom and hug the toilet on their own. I don't need to sit there and help them like I would, say, a 3 year old.
What do y'all think?? Do your husbands or boyfriends act like babies when they're sick?? Do you cringe when you hear a guy say, "Come take care of me, I'm sick"??
Not only do I cringe, but I run the other way!! :)
