Thumbs down Drown one's sorrows

I didn't get a job I applied for, and want to drown my sorrows in ice cream, carmel sauce, and chocolate sauce. What do you do to drown your sorrows?

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

Nothing. I can't even stomach food when I feel down.

I usually hide in a super hot bath. I'm sorry you didn't get the job. :-(

I sit at a favorite Mexican bar, read my Kindle, eat chips and salsa, and drink Dr. Pepper.

It depends on what it is...if it's draining, I'm inclined to drink red wine and listen to Lana del Rey. If I'm angry or annoyed I might eat pizza and watch horror movies. If I'm really overwhelmed and feel like running away instead of curling into myself, I like to go hiking or camping.

I meditate every day, and more than once when I feel bad. It brings me back to my center and gives me peace.

If I look for comfort because I feel physically unwell I curl up with a nice book or some good movie under a duvet with something nice to munch on and a cup of tea.

Comfort foods for me are anything with potatoes, a pizza or ice cream

I go for a 5k run (in a circle to make sure I come back).

Sorry to hear about the job!

I'm sorry you didn't get the job, Purp. I remember, about 20 years ago, my whole section was being transferred into another division which was doing the sort of work I really wanted to be involved in- but just before the transfer, I was transferred out of the section. I still had a job, but I was disappointed.

What I do depends upon how I feel. For some reason, my eating habits generally don't change. If I'm angry/sorrowful, intense exercise is what I need (I get regular checkups and know that, for the moment, I have no medical conditions which would make this dangerous for me). On the other hand, if I feel like I want to just crawl into a quiet place for a time, I try not to do that, and make an effort to socialize with people I care about. I might tell them about something that is bothering me, but I try to sort of make light of it and not unload on them too much. I'll probably listen to some music that improves my mood, in either case.

Sorry to hear you didn't get the job you wanted, that's always disappointing. I tend to be a sad/angry baker. Having a bad day? Make some awesome f***** cookies! Feeling really blue? Here comes the most bada** cake you've ever seen! It doesn't really fix anything, but it sure does feel good to dig into something great when you feel like the world is against you. You hear that world? I'm having my cake and eating it too! So there!

Good advice. I (sort of) took it all ready. Hold on, just a sec. Chocolate layer cake with a layer of Chocolate chip cookie.

Anything gluten-free vegan pasta related, like the "beanaroni" with penne, homemade marinara and sauteed mushrooms, garlic, onions, and black beans I made recently, or typical macaroni salad southern style, or tossed in with mixed sauteed veggies with toasted sesame oil (and sometimes a bit of hoison sauce for the Asian bbq effect), or with earth balance soy free buttery spread stuff and garlic -or- if I'm craving sweetness, I reach for crunchy peanut butter with dairy free chocolate chips, or medjool dates stuffed with peanut butter, walnuts, and/or coconut butter and dipped in melted dairy free chocolate chips, or nice cream made with frozen bananas, carob powder, and nut butter of some sort, or frozen watermelon sorbet................mmmmmmmmmmm. Yumminess that really IS as treat. lol Compared to the things I used to grab and call a treat, anyways. Yikes! I think I could benefit from drowning those memories, too. I hear some leftover penne calling my name.
