The latest episode of the Love Letters podcast is out today. It's a very important episode. I do recommend starting from the beginning of the season. Find every episode here. Also, this is a Boston.com survey about the column. If you haven't taken it and have a minute, please do. A month ago, I began dating "Robby." Robby is so different from me. I am a creative producer, and he's training to be an officer in the military. We have very different lives but seemed to balance each other out. After we began dating, I realized Robby had some anger issues, seemingly flipping a switch and getting annoyed at me for very small issues (like me changing the radio station or trying to rest on him while he was paying attention to a movie). It seems like he is someone who really likes to be in control and when he isn't, he gets angry. When I'd get upset and stop talking during these moments (how I deal with him upsetting me), he'd always apologize for his behavior. Honestly, at first these just … [Read more...] about I don’t like his anger

Freyer Globe Staff March 10, 2019 Nine out of 10 older people get their blood pressure checked when they visit their primary care doctors, and 73 percent are screened for hearing or vision loss. But what about problems with memory or thinking? Only 16 percent are asked about that.Those are among the findings in a pair of surveys conducted by the Alzheimer’s Association and released last week. The results show that although Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia are common afflictions of old age, when it comes to detecting early symptoms, many doctors just don’t want to go there.“Some people feel like there’s not much we can do for dementia,” said Dr. Erin E. Stevens, a geriatrician at Massachusetts General Hospital. Doctors hesitate to give a devastating diagnosis when they have no treatment to offer, she … [Read more...] about Most doctors don’t screen for dementia, but that may change in Massachusetts
I'm a 29-year-old man. I became friends with a female co-worker at my relatively new teaching job, and she seems to enjoy talking to me and spending time with me. In fact, we have been out one-on-one a few times, and have another outing planned for this weekend. I guess I should be very happy, but I am concerned because she is very hard to read. On the last date, I paid for her lunch, which she thanked me for. Sometimes after the school day ends, I have been stopping by her classroom, and we've been talking for up to an hour each time. I know she likes me; that's not the issue. The issue is that I don't know to what extent she likes me. We have a lot in common, and every time I talk to her I find out something else about her that I like. I realized a few weeks ago that I love her. Yes, my feelings are strong enough to use the word "love." She is a bit younger and has never been in a relationship before. I can't tell if she is attracted to me and is just very subdued about showing it, … [Read more...] about I don’t know if she has feelings for me
Episode three of the podcast is out today. There's a little E for "explicit" next to the episode. Because it is! Enjoy it – and the story that goes with it. Meredith, I went through a breakup about a year ago with someone who I've always considered my "first love." I knew him for six years. The relationship was very emotionally draining. He was manipulative and mentally abusive. I saw him through alcohol problems, most of which resulted in angry fights that he made up reasons for in his head (keep in mind we were both only 23). After cheating on me, he got himself sick from alcohol consumption, was in the hospital for about one month, and then rehab for another two months. I stayed with him through it all. He promised my parents and me that he would turn his life around and be a better man for me. He convinced me that if I stuck with him, he would marry me. About a or so month after leaving rehab, he left me for a girl from Tinder, of all things. Instead of telling me himself, … [Read more...] about I don’t wish them the best
