DEAR ABBY: I am a woman living with a man, but "in love" with another man whom I formerly dated but broke up with because he's an alcoholic. "Spike" is a true biker - exciting, funny and fun. Our lifestyles didn't mesh, so I made the decision we shouldn't be together. I miss him very much, and it keeps me from being totally committed in my head to the man I live with.

DEAR DR. GOTT: I have suffered from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (diarrhea) for 50 years. It began in my early teens. I have tried everything from the early treatment of eating bland foods to today's adding bulk to my diet through the use of roughage and fiber. It feels like I have tried virtually everything but still haven't found relief from what, for me, has been a life-altering condition. Everything I do revolves around IBS, from school in my teens, to jobs, family activities and even everyday routines.
DEAR ABBY: My sister-in-law, "Carol," doesn't wash her hands after changing diapers. I find it repulsive, and I can't help but cringe. I have also noticed that her kids don't wash their hands after using the bathroom - or any other time, for that matter - unless instructed to do so and closely watched. Even then, they don't use soap.

DEAR ABBY: My father and I usually get along well, but whenever we get into an argument, he'll say something like, "Well, maybe I should just kill myself. Then you won't have to deal with me!" This has been going on for as long as I can remember. I'm 21 now.
