Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: L> my problem one of jealousy of a take-over mother-in-law? You be the judge. My husband, Harry, is 30 years old the only son in a family of women: two aunts, two sisters, a grandmother, his mother, and now me. Harry had surgery last week. Before the operation, his mother who is a registered nurse, made appointments with the anesthesiologist and the surgeon to discuss details. After the operation the surgeon came to lie waiting room to an- nounce that everything had gone well. He did not speak to me, however, he spoke to my mother-in-law. When I asked a questinr lie treated me as if I were an intruder. When the nurse canic to say we could see Harry, my mother-in-law went into the recovery room. (Of course he didn't know we were there.) Within a few minutes, I was politely ushered out, with a firm hand on my elbow. His mother stayed for almost ten minutes, talking with the nurse in hushed tones. I've gone out of my way to include my mother-in-law In social activities. I've taken her side at various times when Harry felt she was too pushy. Her conduct these past several days has cut me to the quick. I feel that she has shoved me into the background in a most inconsiderate way. Has Harry's fllness made me too touchy? Am I over reacting? What do you say? On DEAR IN: Perhaps your mother-in-law "took over" Ire- cause she is an R.N and the hospital is her ballpark. I hope by the time you read this you will have overcome your resentment. You sound like a fine woman who has tried hard to be a good daughtcr-in-Iaw. Don't let this incident your relationship. DEAR ANN LANDERS: For years my husband and I drank more than most people. We drank at home, at work, and socially at every opportunity to celebrate when things were good, and to "drown our sorrows" when things were bad. We've had plenty of grief which can be attributed directly to excessive drinking. My husband and I were both loaded the night we had a nasty accident. We were very nearly lolled and we came close to killing three other people. After that accident we agreed "no more booze." I have kept my pledge but my husband has not kept his. Several times lately I've been sure that Jim has been drinking at work. He tries to hide it with cough drops and mouthwash but I can tell by his eyes and the way he speaks and acts. Liquor makes him noisy and rough. The effect on me because of what he is doing is shock, disgust and depression, 1'rc beginning to wonder if I can stay married to this man. Somehow I can't bring myself to speak to him about it. I'm afraid I might say the wrong thing. Please help me soon. I'm having trouble sleeping. Garden City Woes DEAR G. C. W.: You MUST speak to him. But pick your time and place. Don't try to reason with a man who is drunk. Wait until he's sober. And don't bring up the subject when you are angry. Your approach should be low-key, compas- sionate and understanding. You are far better equipped to help your husband than most women who are married to boozers, because you HAVE walked those miserable miles in his moccasins. Moreover, your ability to stay dry should give him hope and strength. Good luck to you both. n- DEAR ANN LANDERS: Something is bothering me, and maybe your column is not the place to take it up but frankly, you are like a family friend and I don't know where else to go. I just returned from a funeral of an acquaintance. She looked very natural except for one thing her eyeglasses. A person who has passed away is in a very real sense "asleep" forever. People do not sleep with their glasses on, so why would a mortician be so stupid as to put glasses on a de- ceased person? Please reply in the paper. Maybe someone will learu from E. G., Stockton DEAR STOCK: This decision is not made by the morti- cian. The family decides.
