I am a female in a relationship with an older man. He has ocd. He doesn't like my daughter. How can I cope with this. I clam up and don't talk.

I am a female in a relationship with an older man. He has ocd. He doesn't like my daughter. How can I cope with this. I clam up and don't talk.

Your daughter will: Always be in your life and your gentleman friend needs to know that being in relationship w/you is a "package deal." Continue to have your own relationship w/her. Don't let his OCD be a excuse to dislike your daughter. Folks dislike others w/out OCD also. Peace and good health. Don't forget that he's your boyfriend, not your father. ...Read more

I am allergic to iodine, shrimp, lobster, seaweed, but can eat crab, fish clams, octopus. I would like to start taking fish oil for depression. Can I?

If you are depressed, there are medications and counseling that can help - see your Doctor. If you have not been evaluated for specific food allergies, seeing an Allergist for testing is advised. ...Read more
