What do the lonely do at Christmas?

Dear Ms Thompson,

Thanks for the great tips you listed in the article. That song is so sad but I kind of like singing along to it - guilty pleasure, I guess, for those 'woe is me' moments. I haven't heard it on the radio here in the Washington, D.C. area that much this season, maybe because it is so gloomy. Thanks.

And in all things, give thanks

Dear Dr Abel,

I would like to thank you too, sir, for all the wonderful advice you give to your readers. Happy New Year! God bless.

Let's try some reflexology

Dear Dr Gardner,

Thank you for your article on reflexology. As a practitioner, I find reflexology to be wonderful for youth and seniors for the touch-benefit factor. They are in the populations that are less touched than say, younger children or adults with partners. It is a fine healing art. Explore yoga next. Be well.
