That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could answer your Medifast question..
Yeah, I like the give her a kiss part and would add telling her that you are grateful she cares/loves you. Keep saying no!..
I agree with the other posts. Sounds like your wife need some assurance from you. I'm lucky in that my boyfriend is very supportive of me and the only thing he pushes is that I get my fluids and vitamins in. I probably need that push so I just tell him it is nice to have someone to worry about me. I also encourage him to read this.
Board. It has helped to understand what I'm going through. It might help your wife..
Does anyone know if there is a group for partners/spouses of GBS patients?..
I am preop but my husband, who is the cook, has always been mystified about my need to.
And wants to stuff me...he told me finally just tell me what you are supposed to eat so I have tried to educate him...he has looked over information and wants a menu that I have to follow day one post.
...maybe you can educate your wife..
IMHO... It sounds like she's scared of something. MAybe she doesn't even know what it is yet..
A friend of mine suggested this to me and it usually works... sit down with her, take her hands in yours and ask her why she is asking you to eat something all the time. Give her an opportunity to tell you what's up. I find that usually they just need to be heard, and me assuming what the cause may be is, at the very least, not the whole story and, at most, totally wrong..
Then give her the kiss! Good Luck!..
