      So sorry you are dealing with this. Put yourself first, you are priority number 1! You have enough on your plate and you have the right to be worried about Covid or a cold. You don’t need anyone’s permission to have your feelings, nor do you owe anyone an explanation.

      I had to fight with my ex to keep people out of our house when I went through chemo. I’m thankful your spouse stepped up and spoke with his parents. Best wishes

      We just had a neighbor die from Covid, 58 years old. Don’t take chances. Take care of yourself! Glad you husband stepped up!

      Kellraiser-- I'm so glad that your husband stood up for you, and 2 of the in-laws got their first shots. It can be so miserable trying to not get infected by anything. It seemed that I had a bull's eye on me that said--COUGH ON ME -LET YOUR DOG BITE ME- I got tetanus-whooping cough-pasteurella multocida-every cold that was going around-and I was trying to stay safe and healthy.
      I went to the pharmacy, a coughing woman went by- 2 weeks later I had a bad case of whooping cough that lasted for about 11 months.

      You are not exaggerating anything and you're lucky to have a loyal husband that will speak up for you.

    Oh No (Relationship issues): In-laws don't understand that I need to watch out for small illnesses (bugs, colds, flu, etc) and think that I'm over dramatic, that I prevent my husband from attending family functions.
