Dear Amy: I am a 28-year-old, college-educated woman who has been in a serious relationship for the past two years. Last year my boyfriend’s job took him to a different state. I left my family and job and moved to be with him.
Dear Amy: I’ve been dealing with epilepsy and its unknown causes for more than 20 years. Several tests by my neurologist mark me as a good candidate for surgery. I’m currently planning surgery to possibly prevent future seizures. I know this is very difficult for my husband and teenage daughter to have to live with and accept. I try to be as positive as I can so as not to bring others down.
Dear Amy: I was terribly shy and lonely as a kid. Somewhere in my teens I decided to break out of it. I became a performer, have two degrees and have taught at universities around the world. I raised three wonderful and successful children with my wife of three decades.
Dear Amy: I am a woman in my late 60s who has had a friend for more than 40 years. Many years ago I was in a powerful position with an organization and encouraged her to apply for a job with the company. She worked for several years in various administrative roles (never reporting directly to me) and was a very good employee, as well as a good friend.
Dear Amy: I am 43 years old and was adopted at birth. I had the usual curiosities about my biological parents growing up, but have wonderful parents and siblings and never went looking for my biological parents.
Dear Amy: My stepson recently turned 21. Because he has friends who are minors, his mother warned him about the responsibilities involving the use of liquor. Despite this, he directly defied her and invited ”friends” over the first night we were away from home.
Dear Amy: My parents are entering the retirement phase of life and they have enlisted the help of a financial planner. The planner has shared some personal information, including telling them where he lived and the identity of some of his neighbors.
Dear Amy: My husband and I decided to end a 25-year couple friendship after many years of putting up with the wife’s veiled, and not so veiled, insults. In addition, we dealt with her unceasing competitiveness and childish bragging.
