Ever known anyone you loved but knew you could not trust?
Not just a lover, but close friends you've known a long time, maybe all or most of your life. I know a lot of such people. I can think of three people I know of whom I am very fond--but I know I cannot trust them at all, in any serious way. In...

I Hate to Say Goodbye
My roommate, Jimmy, died on Saturday. He appeared to have died of a heart attack. He was 52 years old. I didn't know him well, only 10 months. He was a guy who'd used himself up with a life of hair raising adventures, stunts, dares, misch...

Does your breath whistle?
Breathing when I wake up seems to involve high pitched squeaking and whistling for the first hour or so, especially on the exhale. Scares me every morning. It started with this mysterious allergy I've developed this last year. I'm going in ...

I Hate Breaking Up With People
Everyone hates having to say Goodbye. However, sometimes it's necessary. My own take on it is that it's better to be honest and get it over with than pursue the muddled and time worn path of "breaking it to them gently" or ...

Has anyone ever heard of being under "restricted medical care"?
