Response To A Call
11/08/2010
IconI was listening to your show when a caller was expressing concern about flirtatious and suggestive texts her husband was sharing with his female cousin. You asked her how long has she been aware her marriage was in trouble and she went off on a tangent but you quickly brought her back on track to where she answered the question, "today". You knew that wasn't the correct answer and she eventually 'fessed up to not giving him the attention he was needing. So, therefore he was seeking his affirmation elsewhere. More >>

IconAs a "family member" and longtime listener, I was touched by the call from a woman afraid to inform her brother of his positive test results for a devastating disease (Huntington's). In your compassionate, firm way, you rightly said her brother must be informed despite the caller's fears of his committing suicide, adding you regret you have no magic wand. More >>

IconToday you took a call from a woman whose husband said it was easier to talk to his girlfriend by email than it was to talk to her. You recommended that the wife email him as a method to address their communication problems. More >>

IconI am 32 and recently married. My wife is 23 and the love of my life! No kids yet. We have both had sordid pasts. And neither of us were virgins. That being said my wife has always been able to accept this easier than I have. More >>

IconI have listened to you for many years and have never called or emailed you before. But after hearing today's "toilet paper" call, I knew that I had to write you. Tomorrow is my 22nd anniversary. For the first 15 years of my marriage, I got bugged about all the "little things" my husband did wrong. One of them was the toilet paper. More >>

IconI listen to your program everyday and have never felt the need to do anything but say. "Go Dr. Laura!" But this call shocked me. A woman called in about a little girl who was socially awkward and she didn't have her little girl go the birthday party because she had two piano lessons, which seems like a pretty bad excuse. I have a son who collected people as he grew up, he is now 23 years old and is a traveling musician, out on the road pursuing his passion. More >>

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 >>
