Did Putin wait until Biden was president?

In the days after Russia attacked Ukraine, there was a lot of talk among Republicans that Vladimir Putin would not have invaded had Donald Trump still been president. Trump was so difficult to predict, so impulsive, so impetuous, the thinking went, that Putin would not have risked a massive U.S. response under Trump.

Myasthenia Gravis causes skeletal muscles to weaken

Dear Doctors: Can you please talk about myasthenia gravis? Our oldest daughter has been diagnosed with it. She's 33 and lives with her family in another state, but we want to understand what she's dealing with. I just read about Chinese herbs that can be helpful. Do you know if that's true?

Woman debates letting ex-boyfriend attend her son’s graduation

DEAR HARRIETTE: My ex-boyfriend is mad because I did not invite him to my son's graduation. They were close during the four years that we were together, but we broke up two years ago. I am seeing someone else who will be coming to the graduation. My ex says that I should reconsider because the event is about my son, not me. The two of them have maintained a relationship even after we broke up. I always thought that was nice, especially considering that my son's dad is not around, but I don't know how to handle having my current boyfriend and my ex together at my son's graduation. They have met but don't really know each other. What should I do? - For My Son

Husband refuses to go to therapy with spouse

DEAR HARRIETTE: I asked my husband to go to therapy with me, and you would have thought I had told him the Earth is flat. He looked at me incredulously and shook his head. He used to go to therapy before we met -- for years! I thought of him as a progressive person, as someone who is proactive about taking care of himself, inside and out. But after we met (many years ago), he said that was that, and he didn't need therapy anymore.

Bunion season

It's that time of year again. No, I am not talking about bikini season. I'm talking about bunion season. I did not even know I had a bunion until fairly recently and now, every time I start wearing sandals again, I am reminded that I do. I imagine it was growing on the sly for years before my husband, Peter, brought it to my attention.

Eighteen wonderful years

Last night my grandson, Tason Turney, graduated from Clinton High School. Needless to say that made his “pappy,” as he calls me, extremely proud.
