I HAVE TO LEARN TO GIVE THAT WARNING FASTER!!!! Annie's MalBiox Kunnllntiiu/lltoctiiMi Dear Annie: I'm a 65-year-old widow who's dying of loneliness. I have no friends. I do everything alone. I belong to church groups and a local senior center, yet after these activities, I go home with no one to talk to. I've tried exchanging phone numbers with people, but no one calls. When I see these people later, they claim they are very busy I have gone to singles dances and sat by myself. No one asks me to join their table or dance. I dress nice, have my hair and nails done, and am considered very attractive. It's the same with my four children. Holidays come and go — no phone calls or cards. I'm not a busybody yet my children never have time for me. When I do see them, the first thing I'm asked is why haven't I found a boyfriend yet. All I want is a friend to talk to, have coffee or go to a movie with. So why am I always alone? What can I do about this? — Lonely In New Haven, Conn. Dear Lonely: Developing new friendships is difficult and can require a lot of effort on your part. Don't wait for someone to call. You make the first move and invite them for a specific time and data Don't sit in the corner while others socialize at singles events. Walk over and say, "Do you mind if I join you?" Get on the planning committees of local organizations and social clubs so you are part of an active, involved group. Be interesting to talk to. As for your children, we have no idea why they don't call or write. Ask them — and pay close attention to the answer. You may learn something. Dear Annie: I can't take it anymore. My husband has suffered with allergies the entire 20 years of our married life. He takes over- the-counter drugs occasionally but refuses to go to the doctor. Now he is making a nasal noise I can only describe as a sniff/snort/clearing of the throat. He says blowing his nose does not help and he has to make this noise in order to breathe. If he could only hear himself! I've been tempted to record him, but it would only make him mad. It's reached the point where I don't want to be in the same room with him. He also snores at night I'm convinced a doctor could help him. Maybe if he sees this in your column, he will go.—Snorter's Wife Bear Wife: People who make noises like this truly do not realize how disgusting they sound. To your husband's ear, it's not so bad. Go ahead and tape him — so what if he gets mad? If that doesn't convince him, is there someone else he might listen to, like a parent, child or sibling? You also can ask him to see a doctor about his snoring. It could be a sign of sleep apnea, and possibly dangerous. Dear Annie: This is for all those people like "Frustrated" who are tired of being interrupted. I would like to suggest they try what always works for me. When I can't seem to complete a sentence, I simply look at the person and say politely, "Oh, I'm sorry. Excuse me for speaking while you were interrupting." It's short, succinct and gets the point across with a sense of humor. The majority of people don't even realize they are interrupting and always are apologetic when it's brought to their attention. — C.D. in S.I., N.Y. Dear C.D.: We hope they take it with "a sense of humor." We suspect quite a few people would be apologetic and offended simultaneously. But thanks for the suggestion. — Write to Annie's Mailbox, P.O.

DONOHUE: I have a soft bulge behind my right knee. It hasn't hurt, but it began to give me some concern, so I saw my doctor. At first, she thought it might be a clot in a leg vein, but it turned out to be a Baker's cyst. She wants me to see an orthopedic doctor. Why? It doesn't bother me. — K.U. ANSWER: A Baker's cyst is a bursa swollen with fluid. Bursas are flat, circular disks interposed between tendons and bones to stop friction when the tendon rubs across the bone. There are five behind-the- knee bursas. When filled with fluid, a bursa can be painful, or it can be symptomless. If the bursa enlarges, it can burst, and that's a memorably painful experience. Your doctor has good reasons for referring you to an orthopedic doctor. One reason is for a complete examination of the knee. Quite often, knee trouble is the source of fluid that seeps into the bursa. Arthritis, torn knee cartilages or other knee Injuries increase the fluid production of the knee Joint, and the fluid makes its way into the bursa. Treatment of the Knee problem treats the Baker's cyst. The orthopedic doctor can drain the fluid out of the buraa and inject a cortisone drug into it to prevent recurrence of fluid. If medicines or injections don't stop fluid recurrence, then the orthopedic doctor can surgically remove the inflamed bursa. — Write to Paul Dwohw, M.D., P.O. Sox 53847$, Orlando, R 32853-6475.
