For the last few days I have had the awful virus that is going round. I have felt dreadfully unwell and have spent a lot of time in bed.
This was OK with him for the first couple of days but as time has gone on he has become dreadfully resentful and silent. Yesterday he didn't pop his head round the bedroom door to see if I wanted a drink until about 4 p.m.
The thing is I feel under pressure to get up and see to things around the house and cook for him etc. Does anyone else have this problem with their other halves? When I ask what is wrong he says 'nothing' but the atmosphere is so thick you could cut it with a knife.
Silent treatment - son
Caught in the act - neighbours
How to say it - 'no'
