    Default hard day

    Well yesterday was a very hard day for me, a song set me off and in a crying jag over Katlynn's death.My hubby got mad at me and told me to get over it.So last night I went and bought a helium tank at walmart and set some balloons with notes for her .Made me feel so much better.Why can't men understand that it's not easy to just "get over it".

    They really just don't get it, mine as well would become frustrated with me, I think its because they don't like to see us sad and upset. I'm glad you were able to feel better.

    I just posted on another thread about this, but men are so much different to us. Sometimes they dont understand that this isnt something you are supposed to get over. It lives with us for always and sometimes we are happy and sometimes we are sad.

    I hope that maybe you can have a chat and help him to understand how you feel.

    I am sorry you had a bad day. I am glad the balloons help. I talked to my husband the other day and he made some sense, it isn't that they want us to "get over it" it is that they feel helpless that they can't fix what is wrong. They hate seeing us upset.

    I hope this helps. Men grieve differently in their own time and way.

    I know he wants to "fix me" but he can't and I will talk with him tonight when kids are in bed.

    I am so sorry that you had a hard day. It can be so devastating when our husbands don't know what to say so they end up saying the most inappropriate things. I am so glad that you did the helium tank thing. Hopefully your talk goes well.
