WHY is it that my husband will lay there ALL NIGHT coughing or in pain from something but will NOT take medications to help the problem?? Many nights it happens until I get up and give him something for it. He can lay there in absolute agony, KNOWING that he will be miserable at work the next day, and still NOT take anything. If I put the right dose of the right medication right next to him he will STILL not take it until I go and force him to. Same if one of the kdis gets him up at night because they are sick/hurting. He will NOT give them anything. Not aleve for thank you's knee problems, or his inhaler if he is coughing. The kids have all learned to come to me (or thank you will go to Jess who will get what he needs - she always has stayed on top of that even when we did not tell her what he was taking. It has always been HER choice to have him come to her, NOT something we pushed onto her.) WTF is wrong with this man that he would rather be miserable than take something - and is willing to keep the ENTIRE house up all night with coughing, or moaning in pain or whatever??? We have battled this for years and I am mostly just infuriated by it - it will wake me up and then it takes me HOURS to get back to sleep after he goes to sleep. Which truly angers me. Now he has both kids up - and he really does not seem to give a dang. So should I just try to ride it out and deal with his grumpy miserable self or give in and give him medications in the hope that the rest of us can sleep?
