So I was upstairs with dc supervising bedtime for dc. Suddenly I felt the urge to vomit and was physically sick. Kids just carried on as normal but obviously I wouldn't necessarily expect sympathy from primary aged dc.
However, I went doenstairs to get water and told dh and his response was um!
No sympathy.
Aibu to be pissed off with him.

I wouldn't get anything other than 'eeeew - why are you telling me?

And then he'd spend the day trying to avoid me in case I was contagious. grin

How would you have liked him to react exactly?

You just vomitted! Its really not a big deal. Do you have a bug? Are you pregnant?

May I be the first to say both LTB and POAS?

Yanbu! But then, I probably make too big a deal of being sick. It's just so awful, though.

Yabu. You're obviously not dead. What did you want, flowers because you vommed?

Beeyump Thu 07-Nov-13 14:07:23

thanks grin

I know its not like you wanted a huge fuss but how much does it cost to say "oh dear, hope you aren't feeling too bad why not have a little rest while I watch the kids .

MrsBungleScare Thu 07-Nov-13 14:12:24

I think yabu to be pisaed off. Mildly perturbed maybe!

PukingCat Thu 07-Nov-13 14:14:20

What, he wasn't even interested? That's weird. My dh would definitely give me sympathy and start panicking that he was going to catch it if i suddenly vomited!

Yanbu! I would want a lie down and sympathy in bucket loads! I HATE being sick and it is a full on disaster if I feel in the slightest bit queasy

BrianTheMole Thu 07-Nov-13 14:16:16

Crikey, is it really too much for him to say something sympathetic to you? Of course YANBU.

VanitasVanitatum Thu 07-Nov-13 14:16:58

Would definitely get lots of sympathy! How would you have reacted in his situation?

DidoTheDodo Thu 07-Nov-13 14:17:44

This has conjured up all sorts of very strange pictures in my head of you throwing up all over the kids and no-one noticing...
Are you, in fact, a ghost?

Barely looked away from tv. I have digestive issues so get problems with bile. Think that caused vomiting. Sorry tmi

hoppingmad Thu 07-Nov-13 14:19:25

Yanbu. I don't understand some of the more harsh yabu responses. You don't have to be dying for someone to show they care.

We always ask if the other is ok, if there's anything we can do etc. I don't understand why you wouldn't opt for a bit of care & compassion in your relationship.

I'd be extremely pissed off. I would expect something like "you poor thing why don't you get on the couch and I'll bring you some water."

DameDeepRedBetty Thu 07-Nov-13 14:19:58

I'd certainly expect a bit of sympathy! And would also consider POAS ... being sick for no apparent reason isn't something that happens to me.

popmusic84 Thu 07-Nov-13 14:20:24

Just bit of interest.

DameDeepRedBetty Thu 07-Nov-13 14:20:42

xposted with your update. Scrub the POAS bit grin

Sounds like this happens often with the digestive issues so I can see why your DH had no reaction.
