The most comforting part was when a therapist listed the GAD symptoms. I felt less alone knowing that this is common enough to have a list of known symptoms. Your disclosing your condition helps others feel less alone too. Thanks.

I’ve been catching up on my favorite blogs after taking a very long break from online activism, and I had to say something when I saw your post. Thanks for talking publicly about your issues. I can relate to so much of what you describe, especially catastrophizing, being horrified by my potential to hurt others, being haunted/constrained/agitated by traumas from the past, and distracting myself with media. Your openness is an inspiration to those of us who tend toward silence and isolation.

Alas, there is a weight allowance – but then, it’s not like I need any of my other stuff.

I learned about mac n cheese, made it, love it, but I do not understand that box thingy.
On the other hand, I grew up in a home where a particular kind of boxed spaghetti with tomato sauce was a special treat….

I’d love to try that. I recently posted about how to make mac and cheese while camping/backpacking with a small pot/stove and no cooler – I’d love to try this stuff that way if it’s as good as you say!

USian here, and I’ve obviously been cheated of the good stuff. In fact, I made some Kraft (the premium kind) yesterday, and found it wanting as I always do. But I don’t have a good recipe for homemade, either.

In fact, the best cheesy pasta I’ve had recently has been my own concoction with Italian cheeses. I cook the pasta, then toss it with a little good olive oil and a lot of really good shredded Italian cheese like a mix of parmesan and romano. I use an electric stove, so I do this in the cooking pot over the warm but turned-off burner until the cheese melts. Not to-die-for, but a very nice pasta dish.
