Is ‘Man Flu’ Real?!

January 11, 2020

Fever chills Little cough aching all symptoms of the dreaded flu Of course the flu season is here along with a new even more much more serious strain What do you need yeah, I know you don’t feel good, I don’t feel good either no I have the same cold that you have and pretty sure you gave me this cold I can’t lay down in bed and pet your back. I have things. I have to do let me get you some juice I Don’t really have that much empathy because I as well have the exact same cold you do and I am doing laundry and dishes and Dealing with the kit. I’ve already felt your head. You don’t have a fever. I’m not checking your head again. You’re perfectly fine I will check your head one more time. Yeah, you still don’t have a fever I know that you feel like you’re going to die, but you’re not going to die you just have a cold okay Enjoy the rest of your man cold What happened in my house between me and my husband just Recently we had the same strain and he was down for three weeks He’s like the most strong like sensible man when he’s not sick, but when he’s sick Oh, my gosh like jad he will not leave the bed I’m still doing everything I went out on a hike, and I have the same okay so mate may I have the floor with dr. Ordon floor. All right all right hear me out hear me out ladies new research published in British Medical Journal says Physiological differences between men and women may lead to different responses to colds and viruses Maybe there’s a reason why us men are so wimpy sensitive so okay, okay? Dr.. Cal soo This is one researcher in fairness says that men may really suffer more than women Which is several animal and human studies and found that? Testosterone could dampen the immunes response to influenza and other viral respiratory infections this researcher sounds so so you know I maybe just maybe We’re wimpier when it comes to cold and flu for a reason Opinion now there may be a reason though there may be a reason Yeah, we will continue to love you and support you and honor you through your your cold or whatever But what we will not do what we will not do is legitimize your behavior Your hormonal days of the month We’re entitled to a little tea let me just back up a second Take this let you take this one. Okay, all right dr. Nina. I think on the same wavelength here I personally feel like Maybe if you guys want a little extra. Love you Just have a hard time asking and then so then when you have a cold or the flu It’s the perfect chance to then just lay back And then you have a reason for us of a region and do everything for you But just ask if you want a little extra cuddling Mitchell periods are real. Those are real studies Researchers data even a researcher. It’s a little bit tongue-in-cheek Obviously, this is one of those things that it’s not some big formal study but there is nothing better than as a guy you get a little sick you feel bad and It I would I’ll be the first to admit it kind of it’s kind of nice when do you need some hot tea yeah? But you pretend like your illness is a strong 9 You can convince yourself an illness is a 9 if it means you’re gonna. Get snacks and key A little more a little more love yeah that every good second That’s the truth, and I will say we rarely do get sick And that’s maybe what the important topic is here because this time of year if you’re around someone who has Influenza try to keep your distance a little bit wash those hands Don’t touch your eyes your nose keep that immune system strong whether male or female were we’re in this together We’re both going to get the flu You

    When ever i have something that inflames my sinuses it puts me on my ass. But anything else I’m unlikely to know i even have it in the few hours its there.

    If i could afford to get rid of my sinuses i would in an instant as I’ve only been made bed riden by sinus related stuff. Even survived the flu with no medicine at age 1 or something. gone in less than a week but my grandma still had it for another week after i got rid of it.

    My husband and sons are the same way when they get sick. I believe their behavior comes from not having a high tolerance for any type of sickness or pain as women do. Hence, menstrual cicles, child birth, flu season, etc. Their bodies react differently to the sudden changes they are experiencing and the only way to express it is in that way. Is it annoying, hell yeah!!
    But, that is why I make sure they are eating right, take enough vitamin C throughout the year. And at the first sign of a cold or flu. They take their Theraflu and medication. The longest I've had them sick for, is a day and a half. Sometimes even a day. My record was half a day. I take care of them the best I can. Which is why they don't get sick often maybe once a year at the most.

    She went for a Hike when she had the flu? Fuck off she probably had the sniffles.

    Why is he bringing up menstrual cycles? We still get up and go to work/school during that week for our periods. My boyfriend has the stomach flu rn and he’s been nasty and mean.

    The Mother is being hugely irresponsible at the start of the clip. When a cold strikes (i.e Rhinovirus) you are told to rest. That doesn't mean you lay about all day in bed, but it means taking a break from your usual daily activities for a few days. By not resting, not only is she jeopardising her own recovery, but the chances of her cold deteriorating is increased resulting in her being unable to look after the poor guy with man-flu who clearly understands the importance of medically advised recovery. So it's a double whammy just by "powering through" a cold.

    What's more; with the whole feminist push about man-flu (which is really just pride and arrogance on the feminist's part) she will more than lightly go out of her way to do extra activities purely for the purpose of displaying her disdain towards the poor guy with man-flu. This could include leaving the house, shopping, washing the dishes, cleaning and ironing clothes etc which all lead to spreading a highly contagious virus to others who never asked for it. Totally irresponsible and abundantly selfish.

    "I went out on a hike" – resulting in 90% of the other hikers catching my Rhinovirus because I'm a self righteous buffoon that always needs to be trying to prove something in the boring and very unfunny battle of the sexes.

    I cannot believe these girls are in the medical field. You are SUPPOSED to take time off when you get a virus for numerous medical reasons, not play some sort of martyr superhero and break medical rules to get one up on your man. It's why this whole male v female crap that seems so prevalent in U.S 2018 is so utterly redundant.

    Women are so un-nurturing. How cruel can they be?

  • Reply Miranda June 7, 2019 at 1:13 am

    Let’s leave it at this: INDIVIDUALS experience illness differently. A man can be more of a “wuss” than a woman when sick, and a woman can be more of a “wuss” than a man when sick. We should all learn to be more sympathetic towards one another.
