DEAR ABBY: I’m nearing 57 and single. My mother, who is 78, lives in the same apartment complex. I always try to talk with her because we don’t have much time together. All she wants to do is watch TV and read the paper. She allows me to talk to her for about a half-hour a day, then she has to go. If I visit her, she can only talk to me for a few minutes. Then she has to put the TV on.

Left photo: Maud Senior Quarterback Bryce Bodkin avoids the rush and throws the ball down field. Right: The Tigers had big plays in the pass game and the run game was highlighted by Bodkin’s diving play at the goal line.

I met my former mother-in-law, “Mama Lou,” and my former father-in-law, “Poppo,” when I was not yet 20 years old. I hitched a ride to meet them, terrified because I’d spoken to my future mother-in-law on the phone and she sounded exactly like Lauren Bacall.

Dear Doctor: I’m 52 years old and going through menopause. I knew about the insomnia, night sweats and hot flashes, which get talked about a lot. What’s upsetting is that I’m also becoming mentally less sharp than I used to be. Is this part of menopause, too? Would hormone replacement therapy help?
