If you have a question about dealing with life and its little ups and down, click here to ask Nikoda (hey, that's me!) what the hell to do with yourself about it.

This first time around, I will accept questions this Friday to next Friday (I'm in US Pacific Time), work on answering them over the weekend, and post the results on Monday. From then on, I will only accept questions Monday through Friday so that I can work on them over the weekend and post them on Mondays. That means that, yes, this will be the only time you'll be able to submit questions over the weekend. The form will not require you to log in and will be completely anonymous.

Please change any names you might use in the question.

I am not a lawyer, doctor, or priest, so I can't give you legal advice, tell you what's up with that lump, or send a message to your Uncle George in Heaven.

If your question is just beyond me and my ability to tell people how to live their lives, I will let you know. I will still try to answer it to the best of my ability while pointing you in the direction of someone who maybe can help you out better.

I am comfortable with embarrassing/tough questions. I will never go, "But that person is your family! You have to keep them around!" if that person is being toxic to you. I have worked for a Crisis Line. And, yes, I probably will answer any annoying trolling questions.

OK! Ask away!
