DEBATE GOES ON
In response to the February debate, “Is it OK for
your pets to sleep in bed with you?”
NO I love my dogs, but I can’t handle the dog
breath or the drool.
—Adam Tajyar, from facebook.com/Costco
YES We have a three-dog night every night. The
Bean, Molly and Sophia get the center of the
king-size bed. Wouldn’t have it any other way.
—David Jay Crispin, from facebook.com/Costco
NO I love my pet, but our bed is o; limits.
—Amy Banks, from facebook.com/Costco
YES Ten out of ;; experts could agree that it’s not
OK and I wouldn’t care less. My shih tzu, Mya, is
part of my family and she can sleep wherever she
wants, which is curled up next to me most of the

More on depression
Concerning the article written by Amanda
Horowitz in the January issue of The Connection
regarding treatment of depression [“More than
the blues”]. While I am pleased that attention
has been brought to this very important issue, I
that psychiatric nurses can play in helping peo-
ple su;ering from depression.
Like psychiatrists, advanced practice psychiatric nurses are trained to assess, diagnose
and treat psychiatric disorders, including those
with symptoms of depression and self-harm.
This treatment includes the prescription of
medication. There is a nationwide shortage of
psychiatrists, particularly in rural areas. Ill and
su;ering individuals may be deterred from seeking care if they believe they may only get this
care from psychiatrists.

Lisa Fields mentions three clues about
health that dentists sometimes uncover [“Oral
fixation,” February ;;;;]. I need to mention
another one. My best friend’s ;;-year-old daughter went to her dentist in Juneau, Alaska, for a
routine dental exam. She was upset and even
angry when her dentist suggested she may have
a serious medical condition, but she did follow
up with her doctor and lab tests, only to discover
that she indeed had acute myeloid leukemia.

The Connection’s month of

Our 2-year-old twin granddaughters,
Gianna and Abigail, LOVE Costco.
Their parents, Luann and Kenneth
Reifert, tell them they are going to
Costco-Land (Lake Grove, Long
Island, New York)—it’s like the best
thing they always want to do. Their
parents made them their own
Costco cards that say “Professional
Sample Tasters.” The girls like to
show their Costco cards to the
cashiers, who make-believe the girls
are paying with their own Costco
cards.—Charles and Debbie Rao,
