Wednesday, November 3, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Ann Landers LOCATED ft CORNER of 19th 6lh AVENVf i DEAR ANN LANDERS; I am a 13-year old girl and my problem is 42. He is my father, livery chance he gels lie runs to the doctor. It's almost as if he WANTS lo he sick. At least six doctors have examined Dad tram head to loe and told him they can't find anything wrong. Then Ire gets mad and goes to another doctor. All this costs a lot of money and my mother is fed up v.-ilh the doctor bills and tile medicine that costs a fortune. The oilier evening my father complained (if a terrible pain in his stomach and wanted Mom to drive him to the hospital. Mom said, "you were at the hospital last week with the same pain and the doctor said it was nerves and all he could do was give you some medicine to calm you down." He got mad at her and yelled, "J feel like jumping off a cliff." f said in a very soft voice, "Well, nobody is stop- ping you." Thank God he didn't hear me but I am mis- err.We to think t could have such thoughts about: my own father. Is there something wrong with me that f can't stand to be around all (his complaining? Is there anything 1 can do to help my father? Can you explain to me wb" a per- son would want to be sick? 1 need In hear from you, Ann.- Aslramed Daughter DEAR DAUGHTER: Nobody wants to be sick. While your father may not be physically ill, his aches and pains are real, he DOES feel them, and this is a special kind of sickness. Pain killers do not solve problems. People must get rid of the anxiety or (he fear or die frustrations lhat cause the pain. What gives ME a pain is medical doctors who do not make it clear to patients who have no organic illness that they need some sort of counselling instead of giving them pills and telling them there is nothing wrong with them. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Will you settle a family hassle once and for all? Our 16-year-old daughter has a party over here at least once a month. We arc not complaining, al- though 1 think it would be nice if they partied at some of the other tomes once in a while. Hamburgers, cold drinks and gallons of ice cream aren't exactly free. The problem is that Diane wank us OUT of the house when she has her friends over. My husband and 1 are getting tired of being driven out of our own home. We have orders to be gor.e by o'clock and not re- turn until T have told Diane that her dad and T see no reason why we can't be in cur upstairs bedroom when her guests arrive. They wouldn't even see us. This could not possibly interfere with their good time. She says .nisi knowing that parents are around puts a damper on any party. She wants us out. I've talked my husband into going along with her think- ing but he is becoming annoyed. Diane's argument is that we should be glad she is popular and has Iricnds and we should help her stay that way. You are going to settle, this. in Santa Barbara DEAR HEAD: I'm sorry you didn't write to me the first time your daughter instructed ym to leave the house while she entertained. 1 would have told you to veto the suggestion and lay down YOUR rules for party-giving. Par- ents should be somewhat in evidence when teen-agers arrive for a party not hang around, but at least say "hello" Tliey should then disappear from sight but remain under the roof-and the kids should be aware that they are somewhere on the premises. Drinking may be "Hi" to the kids you ran vrilh-but it can put you "out" for keeps. You can cool it and stay popular Read "Booze And You-For Teen-Agers Only."
