ANN LANDERS Page 6 Garden City Telegram Tuesday, June 15,1976. Thin Wife A/yioys Hubby This morning you answered the letter to the husband about his too-fat wife who has no will . power. Now, what do you have to say about a wife who is skin and bones? She was fat eight years ago but went on a strict diet and lost 45 pounds — which was 15 pounds too many. She still thinks of herself as "fat" although she is a rag, a bone, and a hank of hair. The crazy nut can't decide what to eat. When we go to a restaurant she studies the menu for half an hour. Nothing "looks good." She finds all kinds of excuses for having "just a cup of consomme." The woman just plain hates to eat. She's a nervous wreck — afraid she'll gain a pound — and she's making a wreck out of me. Please give me a better understanding of her problem before I walk out of here. She always reads your column and maybe she'll listen to you.— Going Mahoola Dear Mahoo: Your wife should see a doctor, immediately. From the symptoms you describe it may be that she is suffering from anorexia nervosa, a common psychological problem among females (rarely males). I hope she listens to me. Her life could be at slake. * * * DEAR ANN LANDERS: I took care of my father-in-law for three months while he was terminally ill. My nerves were shot. The doctor suggested I go to a hospital to "rest up" for a couple weeks. My husband and I decided for the same money we could go to a resort. The first week was wonderful, then we ran into a fisherman buddy and his wife from our home-town. The three of them decided we should take an apartment together. I was against the idea, but went along with it to keep the peace. The other husband informed me on the first day that I would have to do all the housework and get the meals because his wife was "tired" and on holiday. I said "No," emphatically, and explained that I was "on holiday," too. My husband became upset and gave me the silent treatment for the entire week. In the meantime, I did all the work because the other wife slept until noon and it took her two full hours "to meet the world." I feel my husband was very disloyal because he didn't stick up for me. Now that we are home he still isn't speaking. What do you suggest? — Hurt Dear Hurt: A man who is so immature needs counseling. Since he'd probably refuse to go, I suggest that YOU go, in order to learn how to live with the stubborn ox. Also, you might learn a few things about yourself, such as why you let him (and others) kick you around so shameslessly. * * * Is pot a drug? Can L.S.D, and pills open-new worlds for you?
