Starting to wonder if my wife and I are not going to make it. Any time I am incapacitated she gets really really p***** off at me. I cannot help it that my knee is swollen up and I cannot walk, thus I cannot help with chores. She wanted me to take our son swimming, but the idea of driving while in these pain killers honestly freaks me out, plus even in water, I would think the knee would hurt. I am supposed to see an orthopedist, but am waiting a referral from my primary doc. None of this is my fault. I want to help, I do! It makes me worry about the "in sickness and in health" provision of the marriage vows. She is frequently sick and I civet things for her. I direct her church music group, I pick up our daughter from dance even though I wake up at 4AM (she wakes up at 5:30) and dance class ends at 9. I feel like when she is sick she expects me to care for her, but if I am sick she expects me to just suck it up. Usually I am pretty good at that, but at the moment I just ave no mobility.

  • Simple solution: Get a baseball bat and hit her in the knee with it. Let the b**** experience the same pain first hand. That will put her in her place.

  • Your wife sucks!!

  • Seems like there's a lot of expectations, assumptions happening and no communication. Talk to her. Get it all out in the open. Tell her that you would love to take your son swimming, but your knee hurts and with the pills you don't feel it's safe to drive. Is there anyone that you know that can help around the house or with the kids while you are recovering? Maybe a family member or a high school kid? Work it out.

  • That's what she said.

  • Sad to hear. Good luck on both counts - physical recovery and the relationship thing.
