A6 WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 2012 ADVICE THE ADVOCATE-MESSENGER WWW.AMNEWS.COM Man’s ex-girlfriend has a Heloise's fudge warning for his new fiancee recipe re-run DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend, “Brady,” broke up with me in November. Five weeks later he became engaged to someone else. I found out after that I have genital warts. My yearly exams never showed any problems before, so I know I got them from Brady. I’m getting treatment now, but I’ll be contagious for the rest of my life. I have been unable to tell Brady about this because he won’t respond to my attempts to contact him. I’m now trying to decide if I should tell his fiancee. I know he wants children, and this disease can have some serious repercussions if she gets pregnant. Do I leave this woman in the dark, or should I give her the medical information she and her doctors should have? — Needs to do the right thing in New York DEAR NEEDS TO DO THE RIGHT THING: Five weeks into a relationship is a whirlwind courtship, unless Brady was cheating on you with his fiancee before your breakup. If that’s the case, she may be the person who infected Brady. Since he won’t respond pointed in me because I didn’t fulfill her wish. Please advise me on what Jeanne Phillips I should do. — Unaccepted in North Carolina Syndicated Columnist DEAR UNACCEPTED: It takes two people to form a relationship. By reaching to you, send him a registered letter informing him out to your grandmother, of your diagnosis, and any you did the best you could to fulfill your mother’s other information about wish — which, from your genital warts you feel is relevant.

Since then, I have daughter. How can I bring this up, been having bad dreams of my mother being disap- which will let her know DEAR ABBY that I was snooping on her computer? — Saw way too much in Kentucky DEAR SAW WAY TOO MUCH: Why would you be “really bothered” by a mother posing nude for her daughter who is an artist? Most mothers and daughters have seen each other in states of undress and there is nothing shocking about it. My advice is to first figure out what you think is “wrong” with it, then admit that you snooped so you can talk it out. After that, she can determine if she wants to continue being involved with a man who is as nosy and prudish as you appear to be. HELOISE'S KITCHENEERING DEAR HELOISE: I cannot locate my Heloise fudge recipe. Could you please reprint it?

COPD: No cure, many treatments TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH Dr. Paul G. Donohue, M.D. Syndicated Columnist Medicines that dilate the breathing tubes help air reach the lung with greater ease. Inhaled cortisone drugs soothe inflamed airways. And, when necessary, supplemental oxygen provides people with the oxygen boost they need. Your wife needs a yearly flu shot to protect her lungs. She must report respiratory infections to her doctor so she gets prompt treatment to preserve lung function. e booklet on COPD provides more information on this common illness. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue — No. 601, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Can. with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 55-year-old man who has suffered from blood clots for the past three years. I have been in the hospital so many times that the nurses know my name. I’ve tried to change my eating habits, but the clots still form. I have an umbrella filter in my chest to stop clots from reaching my lungs. My doctor told me to go on a vegetarian diet. Most places are fast-food restaurants and don’t serve such food. I need some advice. — R.W. ANSWER: Many fastfood restaurants have salads. Or you can make your own meals with grains, vegetables and fruits. I’m not sure why this kind of diet has been stressed for you. Is it for the clots? Are you taking a blood thinner (an anticoagulant), like Coumadin? Recurrent clots call for indefinite anticoagulation. Have you been investigated for some of the inherited conditions that favor clots? Factor V (Roman numeral five) Leiden and deficiencies of protein S and C are examples of such conditions. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: During cold and rainy weather, I stand inside, lift both legs about waist high 200 times, five times daily (1,000 times in total). How close is this to walking at moderate speed 30 minutes DEAR DR. DONOHUE: daily? — G.R.

Your from www.rbmamall.com. DEAR HELOISE: I freeze/store my cookies in metal tins, which only allow for one layer. So much space in the tin is wasted, along with space in the freezer. en I thought of this idea: I use the three-legged disc that you get in your delivered pizza. (Its purpose is to keep the box lid from smashing into the pizza.) I place two to four of these discs between the cookies on the bottom layer. I place a piece of tinfoil-covered cardboard, cut to the size of the tin, on the discs and put a second layer of cookies on. e best part is that the discs are free! For round cookies (such as buckeyes), I freeze them on a cookie sheet, then small ads DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My wife was diagnosed with COPD. She is on medicines and has been given lung tests that confirm COPD. Is there a cure? — C.F. ANSWER: About 24 million Americans suffer from COPD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Half of them have been diagnosed; the other half have its signs and symptoms but do not have a medical diagnosis. Two illnesses constitute COPD: emphysema and chronic bronchitis. e two are almost always seen together. Emphysema is the destruction of the lungs’ tiny air sacs, through which oxygen passes into the blood and carbon dioxide leaves it. e main sign of emphysema is shortness of breath when doing any kind of physical activity. Chronic bronchitis is an inflammation and plugging of the airways (bronchi) with thick mucus. Air has difficulty reaching the lungs because of this obstruction. Cough with the expectoration of thick sputum is the primary sign of chronic bronchitis. Cigarette smoking is the No. 1 cause of COPD. However, some people have never put a cigarette to their lips but have come down with COPD. People who have worked in places where the air is full of irritating dusts or fumes, people who must breathe air filled with pollutants, and those with inherited genes that make their lungs susceptible to airborne materials not destructive to most people are ones who develop COPD without having smoked. Repeated bouts of lung infections are another cause. A cure is not on hand. Control of symptoms and slowing the progression of this illness are possible.

I learned long ago to first preheat the temperature to 425 degrees every time. Place the pie in for 15 minutes and then turn to the temperature that the recipe calls for. Works every time! — Shirley S., Fort Wayne, Ind. DEAR SHIRLEY: My Heloise Central assistant who also bakes agrees with you! Just a reminder, though: If you are concerned about the edges burning, place aluminum foil around the edges and remove it for the last 10-15 minutes for that lightbrown edging. DEAR HELOISE: I enjoy reading your column in e (Harrisburg, Pa.) PatriotNews. I bought an outdoor timer that you can program for the hour you want on/off to turn my slow cooker into a smart one that will turn on and off when I want it to. — Sue W., New Bloomfield, Pa.
