Living Free At Last
Dear Living Free: Only this, that we all have choices to make about our health, what is important to us and how we want to live our lives. You have made yours, and at this point it appears to have been the right one for you. May it ever be thus.
Dear Abby: My husband has a paralyzing fear of driving over bridges. It interferes with our life together. He is otherwise healthy, but will not see a therapist for this problem.
We have been married for 27 years. I am 63 and he is 67. I am very sad that our life is so limited. Any advice?
Landlocked In Virginia
Dear Landlocked: It would be interesting to know how your husband developed this phobia. But because he refuses to do anything about it and you feel restricted, consider traveling with another companion.
