Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Doris Clark Tuesday, October 30, 1973 THE LETHBRIOQE HERALD -11 Indiscreet nurse deserves apology DEAR DORIS: My doctor's nurse talked to me about my Dad, who had been experiencing more than his share of trouble broken ribs, arthritis, a chest disorder. She sympathized, and then out of a clear blue sky said, "Has he always been like this? Neurotic, I Then my father wanted to know what the doctor and nurse had said. I stupidly told him the part about him being called neurotic He passed it on to the doctor, quite indignant! That was when the poor nurse was really chewed out and had to apologize to Dad. How can I ever face that nurse again7 I wake up very morning thinking about it. Blabbermouth. DEAR BLABBERMOUTH: To some people the word "neurotic" suggests a con- dition close to insanity. And yet most of us have our own kinds of neurosis. According to the dictionary to be neurotic is to be "affected with nervous dis- order or of abnormal sen- sibility." The person who seizes upon the excuse of being "too tired" or "headachy" may be reacting to a nor- mal stress of life with an inferior excuse. Sometimes you will find the too-tired person suddenly full of life when he or she discovers an interesting event coming up. If we don't quite unders- tand this the word neurotic may seem like an insult. The nurse was indiscreet in discussing a patient; you were indiscreet in passing her words on. Have a talk, perhaps over a cup of tea, with your friend the nurse; she rates a gentle apology and ex- planation from you. She has had her lesson. Now take yours on the chin. DEAR DORIS: My father had a madden- ing habit of disappearing just as hot dishes went on the table and then he would complain that food was cold. I used to be annoyed when we were all waiting for him but he said grace beautifully and when he said, "Forgive us all our sins (and the way he said my annoyance melted away instantly. I was the family cook. We were eight children. My father always thanked me for the meal. Just Granny, Now. DEAR GRANNY: In a home where I once dined, the father was a "white Russian." He fled from his native land many years ago.

He would formal- ly thank her for providing his dinner, and she kissed him. It wasn't fair for your Dad to keep everybody waiting, but expressing appreciation can make up for a multitude of sins! DEAR DORIS: I am concerned about the kids of today catching venereal disease. I don't know why kids would want pre-marital sex, knowing what might happen to them. 11 you don't get treated, and wait for, let's say, four years, will V.D show up on a blood test for marriage or a pregnancy, or do doc- tors have to do more tests? Concerned. DEAR CONCERNED: Untreated V.D. will show up in later blood tests because it's still there. Some forms seem to go away, but actually come back in increasingly dangerous stages. Any young person who suspects he or she may have been infected ought to get to a family doctor or a clinic without delay! Doris has studied human behavior and can shed light on your dilemma.
