Seth reflects on life in the arthritis club. And makes a blackjack analogy. Which is a stretch.

In the Red

Dear Ms. Meniscus, People make me so angry at times: on the road, at the grocery store, at work. Instead of expressing my frustration, I keep it all inside -- like I'm supposed to. Wouldn't it be better to just let it out, even once? - Pete in Phoenix

Cheery Dispensation

Dear Ms. Meniscus, I'm a very happy gal. Sometimes, though, my boyfriend and I fight. He'll be down about something and says I'm "insensitive" to his feelings. What is going on? - Ecstatic in Akron

Quiet Time

Dear Ms. Meniscus, Sometimes I get really sad or frustrated and my boyfriend doesn't understand ... he just keeps prodding and asking me, "What's wrong?" All I want is some alone, quiet time. How do I get it? -Mary in Mississippi

The Employee Benefits

Dear Ms. Meniscus, I have been driving a 40-minute, one-way commute to work for two years. Now, however, I was just offered a job at the office two blocks from my apartment. What should I do? - Al with the Pouty Car

Taking Advantage ... of Time

Dear Ms. Meniscus, My boyfriend has moved away for the summer for a job and I miss him terribly so. All I want is for him to come back. I can't stop thinking about him. - Missing Love in Connecticut

Sibling Chivalry

Dear Ms. Meniscus, My little sister is driving me crazy. She wants to follow me everywhere. But I don't want her to. What do I do? - Connor in South Carolina

Arthritis' Most Worrisome Trait: Unpredictability

You don't know from one day to the next what to expect. When something happens, you try to reason -- was I stressed? Am I having a reaction to medication? Is the disease progressing? Dr. Laurie explains that you're not alone.

Ex On A Rampage

Dear Ms. Meniscus, My new boyfriend's ex-girlfriend of three years will do anything to get him back -- even take our closest friends away. What can I do to stop her? - Amanda in Allegheny

Kissing Class

Dear Ms. Meniscus, I really like my boyfriend, but he has some problems kissing. For example, he starts with his mouth wide open and then keeps it open. What can I do to reform him? - Desperate in LA
