Dear Diane

    Dear Diane, When I was a teenager, I went through a prolonged illness that left me sterile. I want so much to have a child of my own someday, but I know it won’t happen. I feel like a fake woman. When I meet someone new, the first thought I have is about whether it would ever work out if he knew I couldn’t...

    Dear Diane, When I was in the third grade, my mother was seeing someone and I did not like him. I thought he was selfish and stupid so I told my mother some fibs to get her to stop seeing him, and she never went out with him after that. I’m now a successful business woman, but my love life is not even on...

    Dear Diane, I hate the holidays. Every year I go crazy doing things for other people, but I seldom see them doing things for me. Sometimes I feel so lonely, like not a single person cares. Then I feel selfish for thinking that way, and get mad at myself. I know that Christmas is about God, so why do I feel so let down?...

    Dear Diane, I really want to find out about reincarnation, but I tried hypnosis and it didn’t work. Is there some other way to find out? I have dreams sometimes about other countries, and I feel like I lived there before. How do I find out? Curious Dear Curious, Dreams are one clue to the possibility of past lives, and there are many others....

    Dear Diane, My girlfriend and I have separated yet again, and after 3 years, I’m fed up with her friends. I love this woman, but her friends have to go. I know for a fact that they dislike me, so I don’t think they’re a good influence on her. Things go well with us, and she seems happy about us having a future. Then...

    Dear Diane, My nephew is 23 years old, and he still does not have a girlfriend. I’m very concerned, as this is not normal. He was born 7-16-1987, and he spends a lot of time by himself.  I’ve tried to get his mother involved in finding him someone, but she doesn’t seem concerned. What can I do to help him have a more normal...

    Dear Diane, I’ve been a great wife and mother for a very long time, but our children have lives of their own now, and I feel really disconnected to everything. My husband and I travel and talk about work, but I don’t get a “zing” out of life the way I used to. I feel I have no right to complain, as my family...

    Dear Diane,  I lost my husband to suicide eight years ago, and I find myself feeling very alone. Every morning seems like the last one, with little to look forward to now. I know he was troubled, but it took me by surprise. I keep thinking I should have known that he was in that bad a shape. I don’t know if I can...

    Dear Diane,  I have recently had major surgery. I felt great at first. (I think it might have been the pain pills) and now I don’t feel so good. Is there something wrong? I am tired of feeling bad. Thank you.  J.W. Dear J.W.,  I’m glad to hear you are on the mend! I pick up that you can be a bit impatient sometimes about...
  • Dear Diane — September 11, 2010

    Dear Diane, I’ve been involved for several months with a wonderful man. He’s kind, affectionate and loyal, and he makes me feel like a queen. I have never felt as excited about someone as I do him. I recently found out that he is married, and his wife is pregnant. I was hurt, but he says that he doesn’t love her and that he’s...
