Love Letters

Here are some of the comments that stuck with us over the past month.

Sometimes letters are above my pay grade.

Sometimes they are worlds away from my pay grade – and I need to go to a licensed mental health expert for more assistance.

That was the case with a letter last month; it was from someone whose wife is having mental health problems that are affecting the whole family.

I was grateful to get the expertise of a McLean Hospital staffer, who spoke about what to do if you’re concerned a partner might be a danger to themselves or others.

Many comments were also wonderfully empathetic and helpful. People weighed in about possibly medical issues that could be affecting the letter writer’s spouse, other places to go for help, etc.

I hope that letter writer got something out of it. I appreciate that person for writing in.

Worth mentioning: the most popular letter of the month with readers – based on page views – was a less intense letter about a person whose partner doesn’t like babies and toddlers.

You can send your own question here. It might help someone wondering the same thing.

Below are some of the most notable comments of the month. (We’ll be taking a quick column break early this week with some podcast news tomorrow.)
