The dreaded “Man Flu”: the time when some men lie on the couch complaining 24/7 and acting like they are dying.

We’ve all been there, Mums just keep on going when they are sick; because they have to and yet men just can’t seem to cope.

Watch this hilarious comedian take on the man flu.

How is your partner when he is is sick?

  • Oh my! That’s such a torture!!! :-)


  • Mine is the opposite – so hard to get him to stay lying down when he is ill. He’s only had the flue really badly once and it was two weeks before he could function properly, but still wanted to get up and get about trying to do things.


  • When I get sick I still have to cook tea, clean the house, make sure they have clean clothes and so on. When they get sick they can’t even get up to get a drink. I still have to run around after them. They must get a different strain of the flu than the women get. Either that or they’re just little boys inside.


  • He is ok, gets on with it. Occasionally he is a bit of a sook.


  • This video had me in stitches oh so funny. Poor Deb needed to go out and run some errands and have a coffee break while out…a VERY LONG ONE. te he.


  • Yes! When my hubby gets sick it’s like he has to outdo me. If he’s caught it from me his symptoms are always worse and it’s like he shuts down and can’t do anything! Funny thing is he’s always well enough to go to work, just not do anything else.


  • I am so lucky. Mine is the exact opposite. If he has stomach pain he has to be doubled over before he will complain or ask for help. A couple of hot showers and doses of panadol or similar are mostly his cure for flu etc. except while havingcancer treatment. He went to Dr. and had to be given strong antibiotics for a bad chest infection.


  • Lucky for me my hubby recovers really quickly. Usually a lemsip and some cold and flu tablets with a nap and then he’s done.


  • Hubby recovers from man flu really quickly when it becomes clear I just don’t care if he’s sick.


  • No – have never experienced this – hubby is a trooper and rarely complains.


  • My hubby is definitely a lie on the couch and not move kinda guy when sick, which is frustrating, but not as bad as this dude lol


  • Lol ! My hub sure likes to draw some attention to himself when he doesn’t feel well, however he isn’t demanding like this guy in the video (thank God !).


  • everyone wants their 15 mins huh? My partner is not this bad….


  • My partner rarely gets sick so when he does it really affects him!
