Ask Dr. Gott 7/10

DEAR DR. GOTT: My doctor told me I have diabetes. My choice was to control it by dieting, and my doctor set me up to see a dietician. I followed the diet and later asked my doctor for a prescription for a glucose meter so I could monitor my levels. She refused. I asked her again later, leaving her a message, and she never called me back.

Dear Abby 7/10

DEAR ABBY: I am a single parent, although I never intended to be. Last fall, I was asked to baby-sit a 14-year-old boy. He has been in my custody ever since. His mother abandoned him. Only in the last month have I actually gotten legal custody of him from Social Services. The problems he had prior to being with me have caused me legal expenses I never could have imagined. (They are all paid now.)
