DEAR ABBY: My father is in his 70s and lives close by. My brother and his family live across the country.
DEAR ABBY: I’m going to a professional conference, which has the usual presentations, vendors and activities. Every time I go, there’s always a photographer. It’s annoying.
DEAR ABBY: I saw something shocking, and I need help.
DEAR ABBY: My father’s behavior has been very peculiar lately. He and Mom have been married for 45 years. Of course, all marriages go through ups and downs.
DEAR ABBY: I spent the past 11 years in an emotionally and physically abusive on-again, off-again relationship. I finally got out and am very proud of myself for doing it.
