Thanks for your message. I bring up the issue about every 4 – 6 months or so and every time I do he tells me to stop nagging and that he’ll think about it. I have tried every approach….stern, concerned, playful, you name it.
He’s afraid of going to the dentist. Both of his parents neglected their health–would NOT go to doctors– (also neglected their finances, and, even though both were working could not pay for my husband’s education) and died in their sixties (cancer and liver failure).
Frankly, when he doesn’t show interest in taking care of himself I really do wonder about this….as a father with two young children I would think that it was his responsibility to take care of his health, if not for himself, then for their sake.
Just like with the money issue, I feel like I am banging my head against a brick wall.
