Annie's Mailbox KAmYMfrOMEU/MARCYSNAII Dear Annie: My ex-husband, the father of our three children, just had his third major car accident due to his diabetes. When hr checked his blood sugar in the morning, it was quite high, so he took a fast-acting insulin tablet. That made his sugar drop too low, and later, he went into a diabetic coma while driving his sports car. He totaled the car, but fortunately, he was not seriously hurt. My ex has had minor mishaps in the past because he has a difficult time regulating his blood sugar. Usually, if he feels a drop, he will pull over to the side of the road, but he doesn't always get there in time. Although he has never hurt another person, I fear he will cause a major accident and perhaps kill someone. His doctor reported this to our state Department of Motor Vehicles, and his license was invalidated. However, my ex also has a driver's license in a neighboring state. Do DMVs communicate with each other? — Very Concerned Dear Concerned: The federal government maintains a National Driver Register that lists drivers whose licenses have been suspended or revoked. However, since your ex-husband already has a second license, there would be no reason for the DMV to check the register. You might call the DMV in your neighboring state and ask if there is anything you can do about this, and possibly enlist the help of your ex's doctor. Dear Annie: My husband and I divorced seven years ago, but we both live in the same area where our children attend school. My ex and I share custody of the kids, although they live with me. All school papers reflect this. My problem is with sports events. The parents, typically women, completely circumvent me and give the paperwork and permission slips to the children's father. I am the one who pays the children's expenses, and sometimes forms don't get to me until the deadline has passed. It is insulting, frustrating and unnecessary. I used to think these women were cold and distant because I was single. Now that I have remarried, however, that can't be the reason. Am I offended too easily? Why do I always have to be the one who makes the effort to be nice to these rude people? — Midwest Mom Dear Mom: We don't know why these particular parents bypass you, but the reason you "make nice" is for your children. If it is possible to get these forms directly from the school, do so. Otherwise, tell each guilty party, as politely as you can, to please give all forms directly to you because you are the one who pays for the activities and your ex-husband is unreliable about forwarding them. Make it clear that when they circumvent you, they are punishing your children. We hope that will wake them up. Dear Annie: In a recent column, you had a letter from a woman who found fault with men's neckties. Has she taken a good look at some of the women on TV whose dresses and jackets are a size smaller than they should be? Their outfits are so tight, the clothing wrinkles and it looks as if the buttons are ready to pop off. Also, some women wear their skirts so short and snug that they can't sit in a comfortable position. — Tom in North Dakota Dear Tom: We suspect this has less to do with the individual women and more to do with ratings, but we hope they are listening. — Write to Annie's Mailbox, P.O.

DONOHUE: I am a woman in her mid-40s who jogs, swims, bikes and plays volleyball and tennis regularly. Friends tel me I am headed for arthritis because some one my age should not be doing so much ex ercise. Should I listen to them? — S.D. ANSWER: No. Don't listen to them. There's no evidence that exercise hurts healthy joints. It's true that many competitivi athletes suffer from severe arthritis toward the ends of their careers, but that's usually because their joints have sustained major in juries. If bones are out of line, exercise can brini on arthritis. However, a person knows tha something bad is happening. His or her join or joints hurt. No one should exercise a join that's painful. Exercise is prevention against arthritis. I keeps joints limber. It strengthens muscles Strong muscles next to a joint protect tto joint. They absorb stress on the joint, and they keep a joint from wobbling out of Its normal position. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: When icing an in jury, what's considered a good length of timi to keep the ice on? — N.P. ANSWER: Ice an acutely injured knee o elbow or any joint for 15 to 20 minutes. Ic« constricts blood vessels and limits bleedln and swelling. It also serves as an anesthetic. If you leave ice on too long, it freezes tis sues just as frostbite does. — Write to Paul Donohue, M.D., P.O.
