In response to a confession. The heart attack DH had was five years ago with NO damage and no blockage. He still sees his cardiologist once a year and has two EKG's every year. The arm pain he's having is the exact same pain he had when he tore his rotator cuff 20 years ago. Of course I want what's best for him, but I still think the doc here is just seeing dollar signs. Two weeks of the same pain (and no chest pain) with normal blood pressure twice a day and NO heart symptoms tells me an MRI a would make more sense.

In response to a confession. I would go with what his doctor is suggesting. My uncle recently had a heart cath because he had a lot of pain in his arm and chest and had never had a heart attack. He did have a lot of blockage in some major arteries though and the stent they put in really helped. You would not want your DH to get a blockage to his arm or leg or, God forbid, his brain. It may not seem like his heart, but a lot of heart problems cause symptoms elsewhere. I hope he's okay.

My mom and I went to our 1st Al-Anon meeting last night. My dh and dd are both alcoholics. My mom talked and cried about my dd. I didn't say anything. I'm trying to let go and let God.

In response to a confession. I'm not a doctor, but if my DH had already had one heart attack, I would be glad that they are being so thorough about checking it out. It may not be his heart, but something orthopedic isn't gong to kill him. But his heart could.

Is it just a man thing? My DH became very useless at doing laundry or shopping or cooking once we moved in together. We had several arguments about it and then settled on having him do certain things and I would do the other things. I don't loathe laundry or cooking...but he does. He doesn't mind cleaning bathrooms, mopping floors or making beds, so those are his chores.

In response to a confession. The cardiologist's office called to schedule a cardiac Cath for DH! He has NO symptoms whatsoever, but he wants to do an invasive procedure? Nope! I just made an appointment for him with an orthopedist in four days!

In response to a confession. we each share the responsibility and take turns doing all the dishes, and cooking and stuff. what i'm talking about nipping in the bud is what i have seen time and time again where over the years the woman in the relationship takes over more and more of the chores to the point where she's doing all of them with no help from the husband. And she's doing this on top of working full-time. i refuse to let my marriage get to that point. if he honestly needed help with the laundry i would've done it. but to do it for him while he sits back just because i happen to have a vagina? nope.

I'm a SAHM and DH travels so I do pretty much all the things because it's just easier. However I do expect him to help me when I ask. And my boys do chores. Not for allowance, but because we all live here and contribute to the dishes, laundry, dirt. We do the cleaning together, so it feels like a team effort. 30 mins of cleaning and we're done. I sincerely hope they carry this forward in their own family lives.

I don't get the being married and doing separate chores thing. If I'm the one doing laundry then I make loads out of everyone's laundry not just mine. If I'm making dinner then I make enough for everyone not just enough for me. If I'm doing the dishes I wash all of them not just the ones I dirtied. And the same goes for my spouse and kids. I would hate to be a part of a family where the rules are everyone fends for themselves and no one pitches in as a team. I can't imagine it would be a very loving, kind, harmonious household.
