DEAR DR. GOTT: I'm 60 years old. In my 30s, I was told I had a low thyroid after about 20 years of caved-in fingernails, gaining weight and losing all my body hair.

DEAR ABBY: When I heard that my 83-year-old mother was on life support, I caught the first plane to California to be with her.

Q: I have three kids, ages 8, 6 and 4. I need help solving the "pick up the playroom" dilemma. When an area in which they've been playing needs to be picked up and straightened, the 8-year-old always ends up doing all the work. The other two continue to play or just pretend to help.
