If I want to talk about my mom, he's completely there for me. But when it comes to him, his family and his job situation, all I hear is crickets.
I fear he's getting depressed. He mentioned once (once!) that he feels "isolated," that people mean well and offer to help but then never call back. Since I want him to know he's not alone, I still email him every day.
More than once on this blog I've referred to him as Eeyore because of his tendency toward melancholy. So I'm worried.
