You force him to stay in bed
Rest is one of the most important things when someone is recovering from an illness. And I force my partner to rest when he’s sick. He wants to fight it. The crazy man wants to go to the gym when he’s sick! It’s not only bad for him but also inconsiderate of the other gym-goers. I have to literally hide his car keys. I have to push him back on the bed. I have to threaten to call my mom and tell her how dumb he’s being (he really wants my mom’s approval). And I do all of this, knowing that it means my husband won’t like me for a while, all for his betterment.
