Yes, I know this may come across as a strange subject, but I felt the need to address men and their response to our grief. I've read alot of discussion posts and journal entries of friends in which they are frustrated by the men in their lives. I know that I have been driven crazy and deeply hurt but what I think is a lack of sympathy, a lack of empathy, a lack of proper recognition of my loss by male family members and friends. But I've recently been thinking that maybe I shouldn't be upset, that men are wired differently, that some are even "missing a senstivity chip" (forgot who said that so can't properly quote!). I'm not sure where I'm really going with this, but I guess I'd like to know your opinions as well. I mean, even the most loving, caring husband can have a big Homer Simpson "doooohhhh" moment, right? Why is it?
