Ask Dr. Gott 8/4

DEAR DR. GOTT: This may seems like a minor thing to you but I have a fingernail that is separating from the nail bed. It is very tender. The upper half is very white, with paler white on the lower half. No one I've talked to, including my doctor, seems to know what caused it or what the treatment should be for it. A sample was taken for fungus but showed nothing. Would you have any ideas as to cause and cure?

DEAR ABBY: While I was growing up, my parents made fun of and belittled me. Everything I said was either "ridiculous" or wrong in some way. I was teased at school by the other children, and my parents wondered aloud what I was doing wrong to cause them to tease me. I was told to "grow a thicker skin" or "get over it." No one seemed to understand how much it hurt being picked on all the time.
