Two Things That Can Make Anything Better

There are two main things that can make anything better, Chicken Noodle Soup and Peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches. It's very simple, but they can make you feel better no matter what. For the last two nights, I have used Chicken Noodle Soup with some Ritz crackers and watched The Golden Girls. It has helped make me feel better about the whole situation. Of course, I am not happy about all that's going on and I'm still sad about it, but it helped soothe my nerves so that I was able to go to sleep. I guess, it's always the little things that help make the situation a little better.

What helps you all deal with tough situations?

I don't think I could have chicken noodle soup out of the can or crackers now because the salt content is way too high for my blood pressure. When I was younger, smoking helped me with tough situations. Now I will just suck on a piece of candy.

In tough situations I don't tend to go for food- I paint for It relaxes me totally and calms my troubled mind like nothing else can.

My favorite go to for such situations is Tomato Soup and a grilled cheese sandwich with a side of Fritos corn chips. My mother often made this for me when I wasn't feeling well as a child and the idea that it can make me feel better is ingrained in me to this day.

I cuddle a pet or two. They always listen without judging

When I am angry or stressed, I walk and walk. I also eat chocolate brownies and pizzas which are my comfort foods but walking is the best.

I like to go for a walk too, but sometimes it's to late or my anxiety won't let me.

I've never tried tomato soup, but I have heard of it.

I prefer Progresso's Tomato/Basil to Campbell's when it comes to the canned soups. Tomato was my mom's favorite and naturally became mine.

That may be worth a try since I have not done it yet

I'm with you on peanut butter and Jelly sandwiches, but chicken noodle is definitely not comfort food for me. I tolerate it more than look forward to it.

Thanks for the condolences - much appreciated:)

I understand, I use to be the same way. I didn't care for Chicken Noodle soup, I preferred vegetable soup. All of a sudden, one day I changed.

You're welcome

The Golden Girls and snacking -- now that is my way to unwind.

As for getting through a tough situation; it depends. Sometimes I watch movies and sleep; other times I talk to people about it.

I do talk about it sometimes, but sometimes it just seems pointless. I could talk about it for hours, but if I'm just going to end up right back where I started, with no fix, it seems like a waste of energy.

I think it's sometimes it's good to have an ear or shoulder; as long as they're not gonna be judgmental. The minute someone does that, I stop confiding in them with some things.

Of course. It's never fun to feel like you are being judged for something. Not only that, but it is wrong to judge someone. You can't possibly know how they feel or what you would do in their situation. Especially, if you've never been there.

I don't need tough situations to look for comfort food! I enjoy cream of tomato soup with just a ton of cracked black pepper on top and a tunafish salad sandwich. But it should be oil-base tuna, not that mush water base stuff. And the sandwich is great on darkened white toast.

I hear Tomato soup is good, but I've never had it before. The tuna salad sounds good :)
