Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: Now that my daughter is 1, I went to see a therapist for help. She diagnosed me with postpartum depression. Honestly, it's a huge relief. Three years ago, I got the same diagnosis (my son is 4 now). Back then (and now), I was treated with cognitive therapy and antidepressants. Back then (and I hope now, too), I was happy and "on my own" after eight months. Everything good, right? Except that my mother is a therapist and is highly against meds.

A few months after Gary C. Fitzsimmons met Laura Cook in 1988, Fitzsimmons offered the 23-year-old daughter of a co-worker an engagement ring. She accepted. Two months later, Fitzsimmons stood wearing bloodstained clothes at a Trevose gas station, explaining to a police officer why he had just fatally shot the woman he wanted to marry. "I know I have to go with you," he told the officer, according to court records. "I didn't mean to shoot her; I just wanted to talk to her. " Yesterday, Fitzsimmons, 28, of the 12000 block of Millbrook Road in Northeast Philadelphia, was sentenced in Bucks County Court to life in prison for the shooting death of Cook, a Bensalem resident, who was found lying face down on a township street Nov. 11, 1988.

  Judge Meyer C. Rose, 96, of Fairmount, died Wednesday, Oct. 1, of aortic stenosis at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Judge Rose always had a story to tell. Whether it was about an interesting court case - he was on the Philadelphia Municipal Court bench for 22 years - or an experience abroad (he served in Europe and Scandinavia during World War II), his family likely had been regaled with the tale many times over. "At bedtime, I didn't get Cinderella and Snow White, I would get his life stories," said his daughter Margie Rose.

I found it in extremely poor taste that you printed a "human interest" story on a man who I think belongs behind bars. The article in the May 18 Inquirer Magazine about Ron Perlstein was very much a disappointment to me and my family. At this point, the man doesn't deserve the attention of the media. I only want to read about him when the courts pronounce him guilty of all charges. There are hundreds of people who feel the way I do - the ones who believe they were cheated by Ron Perlstein.

DEAR ABBY: No matter what I do, I am never satisfied. I have a great wife and two great kids, and yet I always feel like I could have done better with my life. I go to work and no matter how hard I work, I feel like I never get recognition for it. When I go out with friends, we have a great time, but I never feel like I am really part of the group. I feel like the outcast who gets invited just so they won't feel bad. I don't know why I feel this way. I do suffer from depression and have spoken to a specialist.

Kristin Rana Hermann and Ted Wisniewski had been together eight years and spent much of that time planning their wedding. He had a diamond engagement ring made from a band that was her great-great aunt's. They shopped for halls, and she tried on dresses. His parents gave them gold bands. They considered getting married at their home, a 145-year-old, six-bedroom place in Elkins Park with enough land for an outdoor ceremony. And at one point, they lined up a church deacon, who is the father of a friend, to officiate.

APPARENTLY, Giants rookie linebacker Greg Jones isn't satisfied with a Super Bowl ring. He wants a wedding band, too. Jones was still on the field after Sunday night's win over the Patriots when he dropped to one knee and proposed to his girlfriend, Amanda, who immediately said yes. "She was bawling," Jones told the Associated Press yesterday. "I was like, 'I don't know how long she's going to keep crying.' " Jones, a sixth-round pick out of Michigan State, said he had practice-squad teammate Christian Hopkins hold the engagement ring for him during the game.

While I'm away, readers celebrate mothers-in-law. I was in a marriage that ended sadly but amicably. I've kept in touch with my mother-in-law, with whom I had become quite close, in spite of the fact that we were two very different women. About two years ago, I was going through a difficult financial and emotional time. I don't know if she heard through my ex-husband or just sensed it, but she knew I needed help. She sent me an email: "When you and [son] parted ways, you asked me to hold on to your engagement ring.

GROWING UP in a world where irony and humor are banned by governmental fiat is a dangerous thing. It turns healthy human beings into all-purpose victims. I've written about this before when the kids at Yale and Mizzou got their pre-Paris attack 15 minutes of fame which, by the way, they were annoyed at losing when the grown-ups took control of the news cycle. But really, it's the gift that keeps on giving, and since this is the week when we talk about gratitude and happiness, who am I to reject another example of millennial idiocy?

D EAR ABBY: Eleven years ago my husband had a prostatectomy, which left him impotent. His sex drive dropped from 100 to zero. I have told him many times I don't care what he can or can't do. I have also told him I married him in sickness and health, and if this is the worst thing to happen, we are pretty lucky. This is the man I couldn't walk by for many years without him all over me. We made love two or three times a day. I miss the man I married desperately. He is the one who had surgery, but I didn't.
