DEAR DR. GOTT: Is it necessary to use diuretics to control some instances of high blood pressure, while other patients' high blood pressures can be controlled with one of the nondiuretics?

Jackson is almost 4 - that age at which he understands his separateness from other people but does not yet understand the separateness of his emotions. His will is clear and distinct, but his heart is still one with the world. Whatever is happening to him, be it highest joy or deepest sorrow, is happening to the world. That thing - the filter, the wall, the individuation of identity that will eventually teach him that this is not so, that his feelings are uniquely his and that not everyone can be trusted with them - has yet to take hold.
