I need my husbands support, why isn’t he helping me? Tomorrow I am going to the hospital for an ENT appointment (ear, nose and throat specialist) I have been having the feeling of food getting stuck in my throat and tomorrow I’m getting a scope down my throat. I have moved miles away from all my family to be with my husband and he is the only person I have in my area. I am very scared, worried and nervous about tomorrow and I would like it if my husband came with me to support me, but he wont come. he said he will be going to work. In a way I’m very disappointed in him, it’s not like I’m going for a normal doctors appointment you know. What should I do?
You have to understand he is going to work, he isn’t just sitting at home while you are going to the doctors office. Also, you are just going to a doctors appointment and although it may be a little scary for you and it’s not a normal check up, I can see why you are a bit scared and would want him by your side. I know you asked him to go with you, but did you explain to him why you want him to go, maybe if he knew that you were really scared and you only wanted him to meet you there during his lunch hour or something he would consider going. If he refuses just because he doesn’t want to go, I think that is a little ‘jerkish’ on his side, considering you do not have any family there to go with you, if he does have to work, then you need to understand. You aren’t about to go into surgery for something, if you were then I would definitely say he needs to go with you. Try talking to him again and really explaining why you want him to go, and ask if maybe he can just meet you there during his lunch hour (he doesn’t need to miss a whole day of work for this). Good luck.
