My articulate 3 y. old told me she had a private party fair ride with a female family member. Don't know if harmless or more serious?!
Hard to tell.: I would see if she can give you more details and/or draw a picture of the "party fair ride." The age of the female family member may also make a difference in how this is handled. Also, please speak to her doctor as to how to address this further, once you have done the above. You don't want to take a chance that it could be serious...it's best to be cautious. ...Read more

Iam finding it very difficult to get over my 15 years realationship with my ex who i believe a narcissist. He seems so happy with his new girlfriend?
Seek help: He might be happy with her, but if he's narcissistic than likely she might not be as happy. All that said, if it wasn't working for you when you were with him, why are you still thinking about him? Whether he is or is not happy, you need to move on and get a life for yourself. It sounds like you are stuck and need help moving on. I would suggest therapy to help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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

Daughter wants me to live with her, her husband I never liked. Would miss my friends, indep. Why can't daughter ask al director, aides for more help ?
Consider: Consider sitting down with her and your primary care doctor to discuss your options and needs. This may just be the only option she has considered and a way she feels she is able to help. Many times there is a break in communication and this needs to be discussed with an independent third party/ mediator in a open environment.

My guy friend claims to be a sociopath but he doesn't use me. He's been supportive to me with my marriage breakdown. Is he really a sociopath?
My friend and business partner Scott just confided in me that he has recently been diagnosed with HIV. He is very confused, lost, depressed and is contemplating suicide. Please advise.
Call crisis line: That is so hard! HIV is not AIDs. Treatment is better than ever. If he feels suicidal, have him call a crisis line, or 911. He is so lucky to have a friend like you who cares about him. Keep it up. You don't say where you are from, but I am sure there is an HIV/AIDS support group in your state or area. That can be a treasure-trove of help and advice. See http://tinyurl.com/puok946 ...Read more

How may I treat some lesbian classmate who is a good.girl but she told me I use to be attractive.to her ??
What a compliment!: Try " Thank you. If I were attracted to girls, I'd take that as a compliment. Since I'm not, I feel a little uncomfortable knowing that. It would help our friendship if I knew you no longer feel that way." Using " I" words and stating how you feel are usually best. You both may learn something that will help you embrace diversity while respecting others' psychological space and asserting your own. ...Read more
Hi doctor I'm married from 5 years and had unprotected sex with my husband many times..we divorced and I was in relation with another man we too ?
Uncertain: I'm uncertain about what your question is but it sounds like you are concerned about infertility.The only way to know if you are infertile with any given partner (yes it does depend on both of you) is to have regular, unprotected intercourse.If you haven't conceived after 1 year it is time to begin a work up for both of you (again it takes 2).If your periods are irregular you need to look into it. ...Read more
