Dear Harlan: My wife is obsessed with the news and COVID-19. She is constantly sharing doom and gloom. I’m a less emotional person. I’m informed and concerned, but I know when to turn off the news. I don’t think spending every waking minute is a good use of her energy.
We don’t see eye to eye on this. I understand her concern. I do. I think she is becoming obsessed in an unhealthy way. How can I get her to take it down a notch? — Concerned Husband
