Annie's Mailbox KlTHY MrrCIIEU/MMCY SlCM Dear Annie: I am a junior in high school and am fortunate enough to have a wonderful girlfriend. "Dana" and I have been together two years. I want to continue this relationship and so does she. We have always argued, but lately we have been fighting all the time. We can't go anywhere without having some kind of argument. It has gotten so bad that I have started to yell and hang up the phone. Somehow we always find something to fight about. We get mad at each other so easily. Please help us in any way you can. — At Each Other's Throats Dear At Each Other's Throats: A healthy relationship doesn't involve all this constant conflict. People who are compatible do not get angry over every little thing. Maybe you are picking at each other because one of you is looking for an excuse to break up. There is nothing wrong with telling Dana that you care about her, but all this fighting means both of you need a time out from one another. Try it and see if it helps. Dear Annie: I am one of seven adult children, and our mother is recently widowed. Lately, Mom has been complaining a lot that her children do not call her. Here are my reasons for not calling more often: Ninety-nine percent of the time, Mom does nothing but whine, complain, scold, lecture, criticize, berate, belittle, gossip, demean, etc. The other one percent, she says, "Why are you calling me? Don't you know I'm busy now?" I can't win. Annie, if she were nicer to talk to, I would call more often. After all, she is my mother and I'm not without a heart. But I don't believe the fact that I am her child gives her the right to let me have it with both barrels and then expect me to keep calling back. Anything I can do? — Mystified Dear Mystified: Has your mother always been this way, or only since she has been widowed? Is it possible she is still grieving and needs some professional help to find pleasure in life again? If that's the case, please look into it for her. Otherwise, you simply must tell her that her negative and critical attitude makes phone calls unpleasant. Promise to call more often if she will be nicer, and should she slip into old habits, gently remind her. Dear Annie: I could have written that letter from "Discarded Wife." I, too, had been married for nearly 30 years when my husband asked for a divorce. I was shocked, hurt and angry. And yes, there was another woman involved. However, I never completely blamed the other woman. I had to be honest and admit that our marriage had not been truly happy for some time. I did some soul searching and had therapy, and discovered that I really did not want someone who was not in love with me. I am a lot happier now. The most positive aspect was getting a job and finding out that I could take care of myself. Has it been hard? You betcha. But discovering how capable I am has been wonderful. Tell "Discarded Wife 1 ' to seek therapy and look at this as a chance to discover a brand-new her. — Tossed Away but Doing Well ; Dear Tossed Away: You certainly figured out how to make lemonade out of lemons. Kudos for turning a negative into a positive and making the best of your life. — Write to Annie's Mailbox, P.O.

He turned off all the ghts in the examining room, took out a ashlight and held it against my testicle. You ould see the light on the other side of the tes- cle. The doctor said I have a hydrocele, and I an ignore it. Can't it be drained? — B.M. ANSWER: A hydrocele is a collection of uid within the testicle. The flashlight ma- ver is one way of demonstrating that ear fluid fills the testicle. Hydroceles can be drained, but they almost [ways come back, so it's a waste of time to rain them. Your doctor gave you good advice. If the ydrocele isn't huge, and if it's not an incon- enience or painful, it can be left alone. A hydrocele that suddenly appears needs be examined by a doctor. It can be an indi- ation of more serious problems, like cancer. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am on a low-sug- r diet. Can I use honey as much as I want? oes it count as sugar? — R.R. ANSWER: Honey has four sugars: fruc- e, glucose, maltose and sucrose. Sucrose is able sugar. Honey has to be accounted for hen you are counting carbohydrates — sug- rs and starches. You have to add the carbo- ydrate content of honey to your total dally arbohydrate intake to make sure you're not xceeding your limit. — Write to Paul Donphuei M.D., P.O. 60* 53647ft Qrtansto, ft. 32053-6475. f AXYDLBAAXR isLONCJFfiLJLOW One letter stands for another.
