Ask Miri: I Had An Affair and Now My Husband Wants to Meet the Man

June 27, 2012


Dear Miri, I got married few months ago. I told my husband about my past before we got engaged;  I was having affair which lasted 3yrs. I had gotten physical with that guy, and I told this truth to my husband, as I never wanted to cheat on my husband.  At the time I told […]

Claiming Life

June 9, 2012


Guest Post by Gail Pomeroy Doktor I should say that not all children have the privilege of reaching commencement, or the opportunities just beyond it. I have known amazing high school seniors who cheerfully filled out college applications, one while she turned dark green due to liver failure in the wake of relapse with cancer (people […]

Long Island Medium: My Psychic Is My Santa, Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy

June 8, 2012


When times get tough–and of course, that’s tough in the First World sense, because I don’t mean I regularly walk to a well barefoot  and then there’s a drought–and I don’t know which way to go next in my very privileged life, I seek council. One would think a person with reasonable reason would seek […]

Regret: Bad For Your Health?

May 2, 2012


  Regret is bad for your health. There’s a part of your brain that lights up and your hormones are elevated and not in a good way. But, as my office mate just asked me, “How the hell do you not have regret? It’s a useless emotion but, still. We all have regret…”  Indeed.  In […]

Resentment Post Divorce: Horrible For The Kids, Duh.

April 5, 2012


There are plenty of topics I could spend my time writing about:   health care, abortion rights or Santorum and Romney and the dismal race? How can I write such drivel when the world is boiling over with troubles?  Trayvon, Korean school shooting or Iraqi’s itchy fingered bomb mongers. But when I sit down whatever is lurking […]

Ask Miri: ” I Don’t Like My BFF’s Newest Lover…”

March 20, 2012


Dear Miri: I don’t like my BFF’s new love interest. Do I tell her that I think the person seems emotionally unavailable? I’m not the only one of our friends who feels this way. Or do I keep quiet, and hope it doesn’t last? Or give it more time and cross my fingers, hoping that […]

Daydreaming: Teenage Girl 2012

February 28, 2012


The other day my daughter and her friends were talking about what they would be when they grew up (surgeon, teacher, geneticist, dancer, photographer), where they would live (Boston, California, England) and how many children they’d have (three was the average). Part of growing up is imagining your future. The girls lined up their anticipated […]

Ryan Gosling Wants To Wish You A Happy (Feminist) Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2012


Okay, I admit. On Valentine’s Day, I need some flowers. Sorry to disappoint you all who believe that Valentine’s Day is just another commercial holiday that we shouldn’t be buying into, but my desire for roses (I’ll even take a dandelion) stems from an ex-boyfriend who got himself a tattoo “for me” on Valentine’s Day […]

Migraine Sufferer Tells Us Her Story

February 8, 2012


This is the story about my friend being brought to her knees. Amy was invincible and then she wasn’t. She went to bed on a Monday night four years ago and woke the next day, at 7:30 a.m., with a migraine. She’d never had one before and she hasn’t been without one since. One long […]
