Ask Dr. Gott 12/03

DEAR DR. GOTT: About three years ago, my doctor put me on Zocor for high cholesterol (225). Taking the Zocor reduced my cholesterol to 154. After about six months on the Zocor, I started having pain in my upper-arm muscles, just below the shoulder.

Dear Abby 12/01

DEAR ABBY: My daughter, "Courtney," was recently married, and the week leading up to the wedding was a disaster. My husband, "Jeff," and I paid for the majority of her lavish wedding with assistance from her new in-laws. My ex-husband, "Earl" (Courtney's father), didn't pay for any portion of it. Over the past 15 years he has offered little support, financially or emotionally. In fact, Earl has stolen from both of my daughters (it was identity theft) and ran up thousands of dollars in bills, not to mention the unpaid medical expenses and child support.

Dear Abby 11/30

DEAR ABBY: Our 86-year-old father needs to go temporarily (about 10 days) to a rehabilitation hospital for physical and pulmonary ailments. However, our 86-year-old mother refuses to encourage him and "allow" him to go. This happened once before, and Dad will not stand up to her and do what he knows will help himself.
