Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: The letter you printed on Aug. 30 from that nurse who wants to change careers after only one year could have been written by me. I became a nurse in 2000. While I loved the intellectual stimulation and fulfillment of being a skilled and compassionate nurse, dealing with the "other nurses and the environment" was an entirely different matter.

Ask Dr. Gott

DEAR DR. GOTT: My sisters, brother and I have been caring for our 89-year-old mother for the past 15 years as she has slowly declined with dementia. The doctor has diagnosed her as having Alzheimer's disease. In January of 2005 our mother's condition worsened enough to warrant help from Hospice. We were told that Hospice helps care for patients for their last six months or so of life to keep them comfortable during the dying process. My sisters and I have been taking turns with our mother, staying at each home for three to six months at a ...

Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: My sister, "Earline," seems not to really care about family that much. She does drugs and sells them.

Column — Bulloch History

In 1824 the Georgia legislature granted Ebenezer Jenckes a charter to build what would be called the Savannah and Ogeechee Canal. In 1825 the charter was expanded to expand the canal to include the Altamaha River. After Jenckes decided not to connect the canal to the Altamaha River, his investors withdrew their support in 1836, calling it "The Folly."

Column — Thinking of God

Geriatric medicine is that branch of learning concerned with conditions and diseases of the aged. It's a large field of study and practice, necessitated by the increasing number of people who are living well into their 80's and 90's. We can be thankful for the God-given advances made in the care of the elderly, and for the increase in understanding about how life can be lengthened, as well as improved.

Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I'm in a relationship with a man I'll call "Dominick," who was arrested a few years back, but he refuses to tell me what he was arrested for. I have two children, and I don't want to continue this relationship if Dominick is a child molester.

Conditions in general look rather stable for you. You should be able to successfully develop projects or ventures to your liking. Just don't spend your rewards before you have them.

DEAR ABBY

DEAR ABBY: Is it OK for two brothers (in the range of 40 years old) to sleep in the same bed? My husband says he is very close to his family. I sleep alone in our bed almost every night because my husband falls asleep on the couch a lot watching TV.

Column — Diane Miller

Everyone has at least one drawer, closet, room, attic, basement or storage shed that is just out of control. You may have several of these places piled high and deep with various and sundry stuff. In your heart you know you need to get rid of most of it, but your head knows how much work going through all that stuff is going to be. So it sits. And when that space gets filled up, a new one is set aside to collect still more stuff.

Ask Dr. Gott

DEAR DR. GOTT: I am a teacher at a high school. Recently, I was exposed to a new fire alarm that went off near my ear. My ears have been "ringing" continually since that time. I was told that the sound level was about 100 dB, which is below OSHA standards. Why would this cause tinnitus and where does this ringing come from? My doctor says there is no treatment. Any advice?
