Man Flu Vs. Regular Flu

Mr finally came home from his work trip!

And he had a cold!


*Also from

He doesn’t get sick very often, but when he does you’d swear it’s a combination of Ebola and the Plague.


I’m never sure that it’s as bad as he claims it is or if he is putting on a show.


Everyone likes a bit of attention, but it can get tiring after a while and to make matters worse – I caught a cold too!


And now he’s healed and I’m sick. Runny nose, coughing, the works! Name it I’ve got it, but I’m still doing everything I usually do only difference is that I have a cold.



My other half struggles in that regard. So here I am, soldiering on. Fighting a war against a cold. I hope to get well soon so that I can write some more great content.


Does your partner/husband suffer from Man Flu? How do you cope? Let me know by commenting below.

  1. My husband once got an acid burn on his arm. It was an ACID BURN. His arm had a hole in it. The burn was the size of the bottom of a water bottle. It took months to heal. He never complained. But you let him get a sore throat……..good grief!

    I cope by telling him to go to bed. I can’t stand listening to the sighing. πŸ˜‰

    I hope you feel better soon!

  2. I stroked his brow, made him tea gave him space to heal. I took him papers , ran him a bath. I gave him paracetamol and made him hot toddies. Then I offered to wash the car… He quickly dressed and became well, even had a bounce in his step. So I loved him well! Now I take a bow and happily wave at the husband cleaning the car, he waves back, smiling to himself as he gazes lovingly at his porche 356… taah dah!

  3. For those that don’t know I am A Kinder Way’s husband. All I have to say about “man-flu” is (I can only speak for myself, not all men) I’m pretty sure my sore throats are worse than most peoples. I don’t know if it’s bad genes or if I am susceptible to some form of super germ, it doesn’t really matter why, it is what it is. I’m just glad I have a loving wife that takes great care of me, even if I do annoy her slightly.

    Also, Nikki is correct, if the injury or illness has some form of bragging rights that go along with it, the pain is more tolerable.

    1. Mr must have the same bad throat that you have. He hardly gets sick, but the one time he does it’s really bad. You are blessed to have a loving wife that looks after you when you are ill. I hope your acid burn wound has healed.

  4. This post had me chuckling πŸ™‚

    Oddly enough in our family, I am the one who moans and groans at the slightest sign of a cold. In my defense, being sick is my one chance at being waited on hand and foot so why would I let the opportunity pass? πŸ˜‰
