I heard an interesting story. A couple went to the doctor to get a checkup.
After the husband’s checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone. He said, “Madame, your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. It could take his life. If you don’t do the following, your husband will surely die.
This is what you must do: each morning you must fix him a healthy breakfast, be pleasant at all times, for lunch make him a nutrious meal, for dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him, don’t burden him with any chores, don’t discuss your problems with him, no nagging, it will only make his stress worse. If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely.”
On the way home the husband asked his wife, “Honey, what did the doctor say to you? He said he had something serious to say.” She replied, “He said that you’re going to die.” Laughter
