A Love-Hate Relationship With Food

Joan JerkovichJune 16, 2014

Compulsive eating is my greatest enemy, but it is also my greatest friend. Both my parents are alcoholics. Living with a mom who is a screamer and a dad who is passive-aggressive drove me to food for comfort. Mom was a compulsive eater too. After her nightly fights with dad, she would retreat to her bedroom with a bag of chips, a box of crackers and two liters of soda. My parents weren’t there f...

Husbands Affair Leaves Lasting Health Problem?

Joan JerkovichJune 12, 2014

My husband had an affair four years ago. Traumatic to say the least yet, we worked through the betrayal. But, I have a lasting affect that I cannot eliminate. And, I'm reminded daily when I look in the mirror. My husband made the mistake of not protecting himself so got Chlamydia. We took bouts of antibiotics. Unfortunately,this triggered an autoimmune response for me. I lost my hair. It grew bac...

Toxic Family Members, When Enough is Enough

Joan JerkovichJune 9, 2014

The three brothers have such a deep history of not getting along that Tee, my radio talk show caller, was concerned there could be a fist-fight at their mothers funeral. Digging deeper in to the story of this family tension, it was uncovered that for years the mother had been pitting the brothers against each other. It was an interesting revelation in to the roles of what I want to call, Toxic Fam...

Angry Over Dad’s Affair

Joan JerkovichJune 6, 2014

I’m in high school and my Mom and Dad got divorced a year ago because my Dad had an affair. I’m so mad at my Dad for doing this to my Mom. Things have been really hard for her. I know I should want to spend time with my Dad but I don’t. We’ve not been close since this all happened and I feel sad and angry that I’ve lost what I used to have with my Dad through all this. I especially have ...

You’re fired! How it happens, what to do.

Joan JerkovichJune 3, 2014

Getting fired or deciding to “resign” before the ax falls usually comes as no surprise to anyone. It usually happens after things have been headed in that direction for some time. You’ve gotten multiple warnings that getting late to work won’t be tolerated. Or, you’ve had that in office sit down with the boss where you heard the message that you need to play nice with your co-workers and...

Message to Mom and Dad: Drop the Curfew After College

Joan JerkovichJune 2, 2014

Emily is dreading going home for the summer after her first year in college. It’s not that she doesn’t want to be with her family, it’s that she doesn’t want to give up the independence and freedom she had while at college. Specifically, she doesn’t want to go back to having to always check in with her parents when she goes out with her friends and she DOES NOT want to have to be home at...

Family Vacation Tensions?

Joan JerkovichMay 29, 2014

How do you deal with a family vacation where part of the family want to lie on the beach all day and the other part want to see the sights? … and your problem is?? Yes, this is a family vacation where your expectation may be that you spend time together, but do you feel that you have to spend every second of every day together? I’m sure that this rarely happens in your daily lives back home! ...

Grow Christian Company?

Joan JerkovichMay 28, 2014

My husband and I have been working to grow our Christian Production Company where we do plays, cartoons and write scripts for movies. Everyone who sees our work thinks it’s really great but our problem is that we lack the finances to get more people to see what we do. How can we build this business to the point of making money? Every business needs an investment of capital (money) to grow to it...

Daughters Abusive Boyfriend?

Joan JerkovichMay 26, 2014

I never liked my daughter’s boyfriend. I worried he was the abusive type. My fears came true when he physically shoved her around knocking her in to the walls. He left her with bruises, and she filed a police report and protection order, but now she’s talking about getting back with him. What do I do? Sadly, the reality is that most victims take their abusers back multiple times before they b...

Won’t Get Hearing Aids?

Joan JerkovichMay 22, 2014

My friend has been needing to get a hearing aid for years now. When I’m with him, if he isn’t looking directly at me to read my lips, he will constantly ask me to repeat what I’ve said. His kids finally got him to get a hearing test and it showed clearly that he needs a hearing aid. I think the problem is that he’s just too cheap to get one. He can afford it. I think he’s just stubborn. ...
