The Care and Prevention of The Dreaded Man Cold

· · ·

The dreaded man cold, when your once strong and highly capable man reverts to a helpless man-child. Tips for the care and prevention of this awful illness.

The Dreaded Man Cold… 

Is an illness that completely perplexes and confuses me.

Most men are completely amazing and capable of doing crazy hard things. They are tough as nails 99.5% of the time. 

For example, my husband Kelly is one the hardest workers I know! He’ll put in a full day at the office then will come home mow the lawn, play with the kids, help with homework if needed and not complain one bit. 

He even has super powers when helping me deal with the kids when they are sick. He can handle vomit clean up with the best of them without batting an eye. He is so caring and compassionate when the kids are sick and need extra dad cuddles. 

It is quite impressive. 

So you can see why I am completely befuddled when just like that my big strong man is rendered completely helpless when the dreaded man cold befalls him. 

It is devastating really. Once strong and invincible, he becomes a reincarnated little man-child that needs me to wait on him, to ensure his survival. 

It is really is touch and go throughout the whole ordeal. But miraculously he keeps surviving the dreaded man cold every year. 

There has got to be a better way to help protect our menfolk from having this dreaded man flu befall them! 

No man {or woman – just to be fair} need suffer from such a vexing infliction. 

The first step in all this is prevention! 

And the best way to prevent a cold is a strong immune system

The immune system needs to be so strong, so that when sneezy “Larry” at the office gets all up in your Husband’s business his germ invested”ness” will be no match for your Man’s super healthy immune system. Every office has one “Larry” that needs to be avoided like the plague… LOL

In the event that your man does get the dreaded man cold, be patient with him. Remember that this big strong man-child is 99.5% of the time one of the toughest hard-working men you know! 

Instead of being annoyed and flabbergasted that he can’t handle a cold the way that you are able to. Take a deep breath and be grateful for this chance to show your man that you care and that you love him! 

You never know this brief stint of service to your husband might be just the thing to help you reconnect and spend a little extra time together. Dishes and laundry can wait when you can curl up, and binge watch a show with your man just to make sure he makes it through this tormenting and disabling illness. 😉
