Any ideas? I would welcome input from both women and men here.
Background: DH broke his collarbone two years ago and it needed two operations and plenty of time for it to get better. In that time he got used to sitting on the sofa watching Netflix,
His shoulder is as good as it is going to get now. He can't stretch his left arm fully above his head, but otherwise it is fine.
BUT he is still sitting doing d***n all, all day!
Formerly we shared the shopping, cooking and some of the cleaning. I did the washing, he did household repairs, decorating etc. It worked well. Now I do most of it, and what I can't manage doesn't get done.
I feel he is becoming an old man before his time, he will be 63 tomorrow.
How do I get him interested in doing things again?
Right now his only activity is what goes on in bed - that's still fine, but I miss my active, cheerful husband out of bed!
