Ask Dr. Gott 2/7

DEAR DR. GOTT: Please tell your readers who have uterine prolapse about the easy, inexpensive, nonsurgical solution of a pessary. I can't believe what a difference this has made in the quality of my life. I was feeling pressure and had a constant urge to urinate that was very distressing. I have had a pessary in for several years now and it's great! I still have to get up several times a night, and there is still some stress incontinence, but I'm comfortable.

Dear Abby 2/7

DEAR ABBY: My husband is 56. His daughter, "Loreen," from his first marriage is 35. At times when he gives her a hug (as she's leaving from a visit) he will slap her on the butt. This makes me uncomfortable because it seems inappropriate at her age. I have told him how this makes me feel; he says it's something he has always done with both of his children. (He also has a son.)

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son likely untruthful about smoking habits

Q: We just discovered that our 17-year-old is using nicotine. He tells us he's been using for the past several months, smoking two to four cigarettes a day to cope with academic anxiety and relationships. He tends to be socially reserved and has been struggling with academics of late. He appears contrite and remorseful and has said, "I should never have gotten started with this stuff in the first place."
