Ask the Editors: It’s a Threefer

Hello, friends! We’re back with another addition of Ask the Editors, where our team crowdsources answers to your questions. Before we dig in, I want to take a moment and talk about what kind of questions we answer.  We’re not professional therapists (well, Luci is, but she’s not YOUR therapist, probably) and as such, we’re not comfortable or qualified to handle the really tough stuff, and it would be both irresponsible and just plain wrong for us to try. We’re no substitute for talking to a professional who can devote his or her attention to your specific needs. If you’ve got a serious issue, please consider talking to someone who can really help you, instead of a group of ladybloggers. While our intentions would be good, you know what they say about the road to hell.   Read More Ask the Editors: It’s a Threefer
