I have been accused by a very close friend of not properly paying attention to, or really listening to her when she speaks to me. I feel like I’m listening, but how do I convince her that I am?
Since we started this “shelter-in-place,” my husband has been driving me crazy. He’s restless, bored, anxious (although he wouldn’t admit that), and constantly wanting to be busy with activities that include me. I need some space. Help! What do I do?
Dear Dr. Alan: You have written a few times about different aspects of depression and anxiety, and also a little about anger and meanness. Can you say more about anger? I’m seeing more anger in people than depression lately, and I assume that this is connected to the virus.
