Psychiatrist needs self-therapy DEAR ABBY: The advice you give, "seek professional help," is good, except for one hitch. One should check on any prospective therapist first. I went to a kook whose office walls are festooned with degrees but he must have left his ethics behind in grade school. Three years and thousands of dollars later, I wound up with a divorce. The grounds? Adultery. The man? My therapist. (And I'm not even good looking.) Therapy often causes women patients to "fall in love" with their doctors, but the competent (and ethical) psychiatrist knows how to handle this situation. A little investigating later turned up the facts that my doctor was known for tomcatting around. He is still sitting around "helping" people, raking it in and no doubt putting out. Me? I have a ruined marriage, two fatherless children and no money. Please print this. It might save some unsuspecting woman from my fate. BITTER DEAR BITTER: Most therapists wouldn't touch a patient with a 10-foot pole. You just happened to get the local Lochinvar. However, you are in a better position than I am to "save some unsuspecting woman from the same fate." Report your doctor to the county medical society. He desperately needs therapy himself, and shouldn't be permitted to practice. DEAR ABBY: My wife and I have been married for nine years. We have four daughters, 7, 5, 4 and 2. We own our own business, own an average home, and drive an average late model car. My wife is just about the most wonderful woman in the By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN world. She's a great cook, an excellent housekeeper and a fine mother. She loves to work in the yard, seldom raises her voice or loses her temper and we get along beautifully. Our children are exceptionally well-behaved and we have wonderful friends. My wife loves my folks, and I love hers. My problem, Dear Abby, is that I am about to go completely out of my mind trying to figure out how a bum like me ever got into such a wonderful situation. Should I accept the fact that I am the luckiest guy in the world, or should I just keep trying to figure this thing out? DAVE IN EUGENE, OREGON DEAR DAVE: Accept it. And also knock on wood and bite your tongue. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I were eager to entertain at home after our marriage last year. We have invited friends for cocktails, brunch, foreign meals, buffet dinners and after-theater suppers. We were pleased with the high number of acceptances, and our guests always seemed to have a good time. As newlyweds we live in a small apartment in a new high-rise building in the "city."

However, sadly, we must admit, only three couples have reciprocated thus far. The rest are still repeating meaningless p h r a s es, like "drop in sometime," or, "we must get together soon." Of course we don't intend to "drop in." We are dropping off — their names from our list of future guests. Isn't that the only answer? DISAPPOINTED DEAR DISAPPOINTED: Yes. 1 think in your "eager* ness" to get into the social swim, yon may have "gone off the deep end." To invite the same people four and five times without a reciprocal invitation from them appears to me as "social "climbing," stick with those who have returned your invitations. If you have only three couples who appreciate your company and hospitality, you're doing well. DEAR ABBY: what is ail this commotion about fat women? My wife is 30 pounds heavier than she was when we were married, but for crying out loud, she is also 30 years older! She is stylish and immaculate and she always looks beautiful because she has sense enough to wear the proper foundation garments. She doesn't look as heavy >as she is because she is never bouncing, sagging or bursting at the seams. Just because a woman is "fat" doesn't mean she has to be sloppy.
