C.J. Rhoads imagines she might have had two futures after the car accident 14 years ago that left her with ongoing memory problems and chronic back pain. In the one she seemed to be headed for, she'd still be overcome by pain, taking oxycodone, and lying in bed much of the time. She'd probably be on disability, but couldn't afford to keep her Berks County home. In the other one, the one she actually got, she still hurts, but she rarely takes medicines. She's taken charge of her pain with an intense, holistic approach that includes exercise, diet, stress reduction and therapy.

DEAR ABBY: I'm a 51-year-old gay male. I have a sweet, dear friend I'll call "Samantha" who is slightly older. The problem is, she wants more than friendship. She insists on spending time with me and calls me daily. She hugs me repeatedly when she goes to leave, and kisses my neck or cheek - whichever she can get to. Samantha has touched me in a way that makes me uncomfortable. She places herself so her body touches my hand or arm. When she does, I quickly remove it. She says I remind her of her brother, but I'm not feeling a sibling relationship here.

A week or two later, Jack and friends walked into the Brick House Tavern.
