Ms. Meniscus

The advice lady who's not afraid to tackle all manner of life & love questions

The Mean Mother-in-Law

My mother-in-law had the audacity to tell me my choice of clothing makes me look matronly and boring -- two traits that were sure to cause problems in my marriage. To be honest, I wanted to punch her in the face. The gall! What should I do? -- Matronly Mary

The Passive Aggressive "Mother-in-Law"

My boyfriend and I have limited vacation time and decided to spend this year's holidays with my family. His mother has been working overtime to guilt us into extending our vacation and visiting them. What should I do? -- Stressed Stacy

The Finicky Boyfriend

My boyfriend keeps showing up late for dates or asking to change plans at the last minute. It's driving me mad. What can I do? -- Laura in London

The Canine Boss

Our one-year-old puppy already runs the house -- commanding attention in any situation. If he wants to be held, he won't stop "talking" to you until he gets his way. And darn it if he isn't so gosh darn cute when he does it! Is this normal for a dog to overtake our lives like this? -- Trenika in Tampa

The Annoying Younger Brother

My younger brother is a total prat and annoying the you-know-what out of me. I've only been home from school for a day and I think I'm going to lose it. What do I do? -- Annoyed Ashley

The Know-It-All Big Brother

My older brother thinks he knows everything and every time he comes home he won't stop telling me what to do. How can I make him stop? -- Tommy in Tulsa

The Selfish Sister

My sister cannot think of anyone but herself. The whole world revolves around her needs, her moods, and her schedule. It drives me crazy, but other family members placate her. What do I do? -- John in Jefferson City

The End-of-Year Rush

Projects at work keep piling up around with only one directive: get them all done before we leave for the holidays. Some days I feel so overwhelmed I have trouble breathing. How do I get through this? -- Marsha in Madison

Overwhelmed by the Guilt Arthritis Brings

After working all day, when I get home, I can barely move. I know my husband -- kind and supportive as he has been with my arthritis -- gets tired of cooking or doing things for himself. But I am in so much pain, it's not worth the walk across the room to even eat. I am getting very depressed and find myself pushing him away, thinking he does not deserve this. How do you get over the guilt of what this disease does to you and your family? -- Guilty Sarah

The Overbearing Family

As Christmas nears, I feel like my family is pulling me in a million directions -- presents, travel plans, you name it. I'm overextended as it is. What can I do? -- Billy in Brisbane
