THE DOCTOR'S FAQS ARCHIVES
Getting Healthier
Dr. Berman- about 2 years ago, I had a really bad scare at my Dr's. I found out I was pre-diabetic due to my weight and my Dr. told me that I needed to make changes ASAP. I am 32 years old and have been overweight my entire life. So have all of my friends. We were comfortable with ourselves except I was slowly killing myself. So, I made a change. I only ate clean foods, I stopped drinking, and I started following some girls on Instagram to learn how to exercise. 2 Years later and I lost 122 pounds.
Poor Hygiene
Dr. Berman - I met a really great guy out one night. He asked me out and we had a nice time but half way through, I noticed that he had the worst breath. It was like his teeth were rotting. I enjoyed his company, but honestly it was really gross to kiss him because I then thought the smell would end up on me.
Different Ideology
Dr. Berman - I am a gay man and have known it since I was 5. I came out to my parents a few years ago and they didn't embrace me at all. I had not been back home since I told them but I did agree to go see them over the weekend for mother's day. Bad idea. All they did was talk about the current president and how great he was for us and how we needed to go back to the way the country used to be.
Dating, Divorce and a Co-Worker...
Dr Berman- I always had a really good working relationship with a man in my office. We would grab a drink from time to time, but it was completely innocent. About a year ago he confided to a group of us that he was going to get a divorce. 6 months later he and I had another drink together and one thing led to another and now we are madly in love. The problem is that his soon to be ex wife works in our industry too and is very close with all of our co-workers.
Am I really ready to throw the towel in on the marriage?
Dr Berman- I have been with my husband going on 10 years. We have been married for 7. He is 10 years older than me and at the time that we got together, he was a very stabilizing force in my life while I figured out what I wanted to do. We decided to wait to have children and I pursued my PHD. He did not have any higher ambition for more education and I was ok with that.
Past relationships hindering your current happiness...
Dr. Berman- I am in my late 30's and single. I have dated many men and truly believe that I have been in love 2x. The last time broke my heart and it took a really long time to get over it. I still get asked out and I know that men like me, but I have just not been able to connect with anyone in a way that is meaningful.
Taking control of your history.
Dr. Berman - I have trouble with women. Every girl has cheated on me that I've been with. That being said, I was put down as a child and made to feel like everything I decided was incorrect and made to apologize for just about everything. So I am more passive, and say "sorry" to much.
Never felt this way before...
Dr. Berman- I am in a new relationship with a woman and she just completely blows my mind. I get distracted when I think about her, I day dream about a future, and I just want to be around her constantly. When we are together, it's like nothing else matters in the world. I am so in love with her and it has only been a month, but I just know. When I told her how I felt. She told me that I was mistaken.
Does he want me or someone else?
Dr. Berman, My husband of 15 years told me that he wasn't happy with our relationship any longer. When I asked him what it was he told me that he just fell out of love with me and wanted to feel young and wanted again. I asked him if there was someone else and he said no. He just wanted there to be able to be the possibility of someone else.
Dealing with a 15-year old
Dr. Berman- My 15 year old daughter is a monster. She is going through puberty and I get that, I remember fighting with my mom. This is next level stuff though. She refuses to talk to me or my husband. Won't eat with us. Cries at everything and in general is just a horrible human to be around. She doesn't act this way at school though. Her teachers love her and think she's the greatest.
