your husband retired young. >> i can definitely relate to this one. my husband retired and all of a sudden, he has free time. my advice to her is, definitely sit down and have a conversation with him. tell him you really love and appreciate he wants to spend all his time with you, but you need to have some free time to work and also to relax. so, just be honest, have a conversation with him. >> don't hurt his feelings. >> you think that's the best way to go? >> it's a great way to go. you have to acknowledge your life changed so dramatically because you were going to work every day and had this work life. let's think about the things you like to do that don't involve me and plan that together. he needs to feel he's still a part of your life but you also need time on your own. >> make dates. >> they can make dates. >> she is going to feel guilty. that's okay. you can feel guilty. a little guilt never hurt anybody. >> i like guilt.
i'm really fond of shame. >> here is a question, i'm feeling stuck in my life. i'm unmote vaited about my job. i'm a mom and juggling responsibility, ignoring my own needs and i end up frustrated. >> and your whole family is unhappy. >> this is a tag from the other one. shees not taking care of herself. take care of yourself and keep -- she's juggling a lot of balls. the one that has to stay there will present her from becoming resentful and frustrated and take it out on everyone else. >> so many people rely on you. >> you do one thing at a time. what were you going to say? >> do one thing at a time, set your priorities. maybe you are trying to do all these things and can't do one thing right. figure out what you have to do first, then it will give you free time. >> if you are frustrated in your job, find something you want to
do, dedicate 10% of your time and 10% of your money toward that other thing so you don't feel frustrated. it's a great suggestion. this woman is looking for a job and looking to improve her life because she wants to go to school. that's a positive action. she needs to remember that positive place she wants to be. >> we have time for a quick one. angie is 32 and single. i work full time, all my friends and family are married and have kids. i am trying to meet guys but i'm spro verted. >> find groups of things you like to do. what is fun for you? are you in a church group, spinning classes. >> zumba. >> right, start shaking it. >> she is introverted. when someone is introverted, going into a group is a horrible thing. so, a lot of people who give advice about what to do are extroverts and doesn't understand.
i like to suggest to people do it in a small amount of time, then relax. you have to recharge your batteries when it's hard for you to do that. go with a friend. understand there are limits. you can meet people doing anything as long as your best belt is what you put out there. >> if you have an open mind and smile. >> thank you, ladies, we appreciate it. >> cute. adorable. >> what's bugging you? >> insect bites and other outdoor problems. first, this is "today" on nbc.

leaves of three stay away. that is absolutely true. if you see a leaf that has three clovers or anything, stay away. >> mosquitoe bites is another one. when you get bitten, i say i have a mosquitoe bite but i don't know. >> a lot of us, in this area, we are getting mosquitoe bites. they just sprayed for them. they are pesky. most of us aren't going to get west nile from them. i have strong reactions to them. they are attracted to dark clothing, alcohol, perfume, sweat, pregnant women. >> they love -- >> really, pregnant women? >> different blood types. the important thing to do is treat the itchy symptoms. if you have a fever or rash that started, see a doctor about it. >> you know, speaking of that, remember last year i didn't see a doctor for the longest time because i had a bee sting. within a couple days, i looked
like i had elephantitis. >> a lot of people are highly allergic to them. >> that's what i had. >> you get everything. >> it was hideous. it may be a bee sting, but maybe not, a wasp or yellow jacket. if you have swelling like that, you need to see someone right away. for most of us, if you get a bee sting, what you should do, this is interesting. don't use tweezers to pick off the tweezer. there's a venom sack and you can keep injecting venom in your skin. use a credit card or your fingernail with a straight end to scratch it off. >> i never leave it at home. >> spiders, how do you know if you have been bitten by one? >> you may not know until a couple hours later.
a couple spiders you need to watch out for. in the midwest, look out for the black widow. everyone's heard about it, but may not know what it looks like. i's got like an hourglass. >> and the red spot. >> if you get bit, what do you do? >> it will look like fangs. you may not have symptoms until 15 minutes or an hour later. if you have those symptoms, see a doctor. >> you could die from one, can't you, if you are that allergic to them? >> black widows aren't as severe. a brown recluse, if you get bitten, go to an emergency room. >> thank you. >> we have a big week next week. valerie bertinelli, jason priestley. >> olivia.
>> unbelievable. have a great weekend. see you monday. . a steve harvey event. first, we're helping this husband say i love you. >> i just really want to hear those words. >> and now the world knows, too. then -- >> you will have the man cave of your dreams. >> hello custom man cave. it's an hour full of the unexpected. >> i'm here to help. you and i will get through this together.
