Dr. Zorba Paster: Shining a light on mental illness

Dear Doc: Thank you so much for your article in the paper on being proactive about discussing depression with your doctor. What a critical point. I also have been writing about this for years in whatever local publication will have me. I am very passionate on this topic. I suffered from depression, and I suffered from the inability to act on my depression. My family suffered, too. Good job. Keep up the good work. – J.P.

Around the remote: Chuck Barney’s TV picks for Jan. 1-7

DON’T MISS: “Sherlock” – After a yearlong hiatus, Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Watson (Martin Freeman) make a very welcome return in a three-episode fourth season.

Family has lack of respect for parenting

Dear Carolyn: My wife and I have two children (whom I carried), ages 5 and 6 months. We spend two or three holidays and other “family vacations” a year with her family, which includes her parents and three sisters and their husbands and nine children ages 1 to 11.
