IconAs I was sitting outside on my patio listening to your program and enjoying my afternoon, a woman called and she said she was an 'infertile woman'...I too have been labeled 'infertile', a term that is demeaning and has taken years for me to come to terms with. More >>

IconWe, Lisa & Greg, called you earlier today (9/27/10) and you hung up on us because you called me "whiny". Funny thing, I have never been called whiny my entire life and even my husband was surprised you called me whiny. I listened to your commentary afterwards and it started to sink in. But it was actually your comment to the lady with the husband who had the emotional affair that it really clicked. More >>

IconA few days ago, while driving I heard a portion of a phone call where the lady was looking for motivation to lose weight. Your answer was no motivation works. Eventually it is a matter of character. I am paraphrasing, but essentially you said an individual has to decide whether they keep faith with themselves or not. A person has to make a choice to be honorable and to close that refrigerator door. You mentioned how awful we feel when we cheat, and that we are cheating ourselves. I don't want to be the type of person who cheats! More >>

IconAs I drove down the road listening to you counsel the young lady to greet her hubby by saying...in a silly voice..." Hug me, hug me, hug me ", I thought...no way would that ever work. Brother, Dr. Laura!! Well...let me tell you...I tried it myself this morning! WOW...instant results. The look on my husband's face about melted my heart as his arms immediately took me in for an absolutely awesome hug! I thought about it all day today, and how it changed the tone of our day.

IconI sent the following letter to my wife: I was listening to Dr Laura today and I feel I have to put something down I heard her say or I am going to go nuts. I am a guy, Guys, whether women like it or not, are fixers and view their role in the world as protectors and fixers. I know you don't want to be fixed and I have been really trying hard to stay out of your way but listen to what I feel, it might help you to understand my own frustrations. More >>

IconRecently, you finished a call with a mother of 3 who didn't feel motivated. You responded to her about farmers having to go out in the rain and that they didn't have the luxury to feel "motivated" to take care of their farms and children.I laughed because I have 16 goats and 2 dogs. They are all my beloved pets more than "workers". When the weather is bad their only source of food is me... More >>

IconWell, ya did it again! You saved me from being a royal B****. Yesterday, while I was on my way to pick up my grandson again from school, something I do daily (best job I've ever had), you had a caller complaining that after only 4 1/2 yrs of marriage she didn't believe her and her spouse had the same "values" any longer. You broke it all down to her and finally told her she was just "whining". (You crack me up)... More >>
