What a twat. Unacceptable imo

Why can't you ask him to get up and pull his weight, or take it in turns to rest?

Ankleswingers Thu 12-Jan-17 22:33:45

Oh no, that's not good. What's wrong op?

Tell him to get off his back and help out. Take your turn at resting.

Also, stop cooking. The child who isn't sick won't suffer for having toast or cereal for their dinner.

Tomorrow, are you brave enough to just stay under the duvet groaning and pathetic and just see what happens?

There's a book called "The woman who went to bed for a year". This may be a little ambitious, but you could be the woman who went to bed for a week.

No you share and you have a conversation: right, one of us needs to take and one pick up. Do you have a preference? I'll do dinner but then you can do breakfast in the morning so I get a lay in.

Right you say tomorrow "I'm ill and today we're switching roles" then do not get out of bed no matter what he says

Thay doesn't sound fair at all. What would he do if you handed one of the kids straight to him?

Foxysoxy01 Thu 12-Jan-17 22:52:44

Op time to woman up!

Stay in bed tomorrow, do not get up and tell him he had his day yesterday you are ill and now exhausted from having to pick up his slack yesterday so he can sort it all then DO NOT MOVE OR ENGAGE!

SeafrontDreams Thu 12-Jan-17 22:53:23

Bawls and yells at you to get him stuff? Is he like this when he's not ill? Have you got any support, friends, family you can talk to?

He can't be very ill if he is able to bawl and yell.

PinkBunnyOnesieOnOrder Thu 12-Jan-17 23:06:42

Yes, you do, asap 💐

GTS Thu 12-Jan-17 23:15:58

he sounds like an absolute dick.

why would you put up with behaviour like that from your dh?

Snowflake65 Fri 13-Jan-17 06:54:41

OP he sounds awful.

He doesn't respect you or care about you or your DC.

You would be better off without him.

I hope you feel better soon.

Only make enough food for the rest of you, don't make/serve him any. When he complains, reply with "But you're so ill you can't get out of bed to do anything, you can't possibly be well enough to eat!"
