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.
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.

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.

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.

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?
