You take it in stride
Women are just good at taking care of their own needs and the needs of others without really sweating it. We’re used to it. We can have an engaged conversation on the phone with a childhood girlfriend while preventing kids from harming themselves and when in the middle of fixing a husband’s shirt. So caring for a sick partner is no big deal. We work the tasks into our schedule seamlessly. I could make my meal while stirring his chicken noodle soup at the same time. I remembered to drop into the pharmacy while I was already running an errand next door to grab him vitamins. Honestly, women have caretaking down to an artistry. We can do it, without other areas of our lives taking much of a hit.
