Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 11, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, February. 11, 1975-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-15 Doris Clark Security check troubles observant wife DEAR DORIS: My husband has taken to locking all the doors and windows most of the time. At nights he will go around and check all the doors, then go around and do it all again, several times. I have ,seen him go and lock the front door, then go back and check it as often as 15 times. I even remind him that he has done it before, but he pays no attention. Is there something wrong with him? Anxious. DEAR ANXIOUS: I'd say so. Sounds like the same type of behavior as in the compulsive handwashing syndrome. Which gets into the area of mental ill-health. A psychiatrist might suspect some deep rage against who knows what? at the bottom of such repetitive acts: He cannot express his anger really express it so subcon- sciously transfers it to a compulsive act. The solution is to identify the rage, which may spring from away back, or from clashing unspokenly with his boss or someone else important to him. A psychiatrist must be the one to do the identifying and treating. Then when he gets the harmful emotion out and looks at it, and takes more constructive action about it, the symptom (door locking) will go away. Your family doctor should help you get him to the right practitioner. DEAR DORIS: You asked about my counselling practice. It in- volves working with-in- dividuals with personality disorders, couples that are experiencing marital conflict and families that are disfunctioning because of communication blocks. However, I am also in- volved with parents, help- ing them cope with "acting out" teen-agers; I work with alcoholics and have worked with the drug scene. I feel also that I will be able to assist business leaders with the problems of worker absenteeism. I am available in the evenings too, and will con- duct counselling sessions in a person's home. Prac- tising Social Worker. DEAR PRACTISING: So glad to hear that there is now a social worker in private practice in Lethbridge. We need so many more people like you who will strike out on their own, as a supplementary service for individuals who would like it this way. There is a great deal to be done by all of us in the helping professions, both with individuals and groups of many kinds church, business, industry. I'll gladly pass on your name and address to anyone writing in. DEAR DORIS: I and my four year old boy write to Kenny in Kan- sas City the little boy that is six years old and stricken with a fatal dis- ease. You told about him in your column some time ago. I am going to take time to write to him at least once per month and more often when I can. My heart goes out to him and his parents. We'll be praying for him too. May God give him and his parents the strength to go on! The poor little fellow! And how many more children are there like him? Numbers and numbers! A Steady Reader 'of Yours. DEAR STEADY: Kenny's mother said his eyes lit up whenever a letter was brought to him, and since he cannot speak nor move, what you are do- ing is a wonderful event in his day. If anyone else would like to pick up the torch, the lit- tle fellow is Kenny Arnold, 284 Gary, Kansas City, Mo., 64120, U.S.A. I hope his mother will be writing again soon to tell us about how things are going. DEAR D6RIS: I'm a divorcee, 57; my friend, a man, is 65: If he takes me out to a fancy place for dinner, he then suggests a place where, as he says, I could take him next time. We can both af- ford to treat, but this sounds a bit off beat, to me. I'd like your comments. Who Pays? DEAR WHO: Times change. When you were being courted, that first time, 40 years ago, even a Dutch Treat was out of the question. The boy friend footed the bill. Today in the young set anything can happen, ac- cording to circumstances. Look at the girls who finance homes while young husbands get educated. Maybe it is part of Women's Lib to carry some money respon- sibility. In your case, your swain may think of his old age security, then look at the restaurant bill, and just before fainting he suggests you reach for the tab next time! The thought revives him. A better idea, from where I sit, is to offer a home cooked meal to a man you like. Address all questions to Doris Clark, 66 Rosedene Ave., Hamilton, Ont. L9A 1E9.
