HEXL BE HIGHLY PRODUCTIVE FOR ANOTHER HOUR. THEN WEtL NOTIFY THE WIDOW. Annie's Malftox Dear Annie: I've been married four years to a man I love dearly. But in that time, my husband has twice been accused of sexual harassment — once by the woman who runs the daycare center where my children go, and the second by members of the female staff at his job. He was fired because of that last one. When he was accused the first time, I thought the woman was out of her mind. But now, I'm not sure what to do. I want to believe my husband, and part of me does, but the other part says he could have done it. I guess what I'm asking is, do I go with my heart and forget it — or go with my gut feeling and ask him to leave until I make up my mind? — Undecided Dear Undecided: We think you should "stand by your man" and get some help for him. If he is guilty of sexual harassment, your support could make the difference in teaching him what sexual ha- rassment is and how to stop doing it. You'd be surprised how many people are totally clueless. Contact your local universities, hospitals, community centers and YMCA to see if they offer sexual harassment awareness programs, or, if your husband has a new job, see if his employers sponsor any such programs. Tell him he must attend as a condition of your continued emotional support. Dear Annie: I'm a 13-year-old girl having trouble with one of my best friends. "Kelsey" is very mad at me for reasons unknown. I have called her multiple times and left messages saying, "I'm sorry for whatever I did wrong. Can you call me back so we can talk this over?" but she hasn't replied to any of them. Kelsey told me she is never talking to me again. At school, if I try to speak to her, she ignores me and walks away. This has been going on for almost a week. I've thought about walking over to her house, but I'm afraid she'll slam the door in my face. I feel sorry for my other friends because I have sort of been taking out my frustration on them. They're probably sick of it. Do you know how I can find out what I did wrong and get Kelsey to talk to me again? — Losing My Best Friend Dear Losing: We don't know if you did something, or if Kelsey heard or witnessed something that upset her, but it is childish of her not to allow you a chance to explain. It's possible that she simply needs a week or so to cool off. So. your best bet is to get one of your mutual friends to find out what happened and act as a mediator. Of course, if Kelsey won't budge, we're sorry to say the friendship is over. Dear Annie: I read the letter from "Traveling Brush Customer." She has every right to be worried about coming in contact with lice from a dirty brush in a salon. I have been a cosmetologist for six years and have seen it all. If clients feel their stylists are ignoring safety and health rules, they can notify their state cosmetology commission. This will result in a surprise visit, and any laws that have been broken will be written up and the salon can be fined. Here is another tip for all clients: Make sure they put a neck strip on before placing the cape around you. This prevents any sweat (or whatever) left by the previous patron from touching your skin. — A Stylist Who Cares Dear Stylist: Not all salons use capes or neck strips, but it's good to know they serve a useful purpose. Thanks for the heads up. — Write to Annie's Mailbox, P.O.

His mother, my daughter, says he has turned his life around and is no longer taking them. She also mentioned to me that his therapist has put the young man on Depakote. His father thinks this is a dangerous drug that will affect his mind. My daughter has been in a battle with her husband to keep the boy on medicine. What are your thoughts? — J.B. ANSWER: I forget the name of the man who devised the following medical rules, but they're worth mentioning even if I can't provide the author's name. They are: "If something works, keep doing it. If something doesn't work, stop doing it. If you don't know what to do, don't do anything." Depakote is working. Don't stop it. Depakote has been used for many years as a seizure-control medicine. It is also used for bipolar disorder, and I believe that's why it was prescribed for your grandson. It doesn't affect the mind. It won't turn him into a zombie. It will aid in the correction of any imbalance in brain chemistry that makes him have mood swings. Depakote, on rare occasions, has caused liver or pancreas damage. If it does, the medicine is stopped. Your son-in-law should not intrude on a successful medicine program. He has more to fear from illegal drugs affecting his son's mind than he does from Depakote doing so. — Write to Paul Donvhw, M-P., P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6476.
