Well, I finally heard from Marty. He called me today. I guess I feel a little better about things. At first I thought that I was just going to stay upset because he still wouldn't say anything other than "I don't know what to tell you." I understand he's been under a lot of stress and he just hasn't had time but I explained that I can't be put on the backburner. All he has to do is let me know that things are o.k. once in a while. I know it's difficult for him as a man to be open or share anything. And the fact that he's stressed means that he just shuts down. I don't know why that is. I guess I need to read "Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus" again. Maybe I need to send it to him. If I had the money, time and a car that would make it, I'd head out there to see him. I wish there was something I could do to alleviate his stress. But there's nothing. That's difficult for someone like me that always wants to "fix" everything.
I guess the best thing I can do is leave him be and try not to get upset. I'll work on that. But it may be impossible.

God, grant me the serenity, to accept the things I cannot change (Marty),
The courage to change the things I can (you),
And the wisdom to know the difference.
