On Rom-Com Relationship Therapy

Is this study real or satirical? Because I have full access to the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology and cannot find it, but I would love to read it if it exists!

On It's All In Your Head: A Conversation About Being Sick Without a Diagnosis

On the other hand, I have had a few years of dizziness/fainting/GI issues, and managing my anxiety really did help! Even though I got a lot of "you're a PhD student, it's *just* stress," which is stupid, I also got the more helpful: "Do you feel your symptoms are related to panic? Would you like to speak to a mental health specialist in addition to running these physical tests?"

I essentially am an hysteric, though, which is more embarrassing.

On Ask a Dietitian: Salt Cravings, Workout Food, and Things to Eat When I'm Stressed

Low fat cheese! Replacing pizza with a piece of bread and cheese (low-fat!)! Egg-white scramble! Cavemen ate all the carbs at once; that's why you love pasta!

On How My Obsession With Furnishing A Future Put Me Nearly $40,000 In Debt

@S. Elizabeth Oh, I know- I meant it removed the insane fantasies, not all of them. Replacing the broken knobs on the cabinet drawers: acceptable. Moving from sharing a bedroom for $450/each to sharing a two bedroom apartment for $1100/each: unacceptable. I was just debating the merits of the latter scheme when I clicked this link.

Personally, this kind of writing is among my least favorite. But living in NYC, I am always grateful to the unhappy wealthy.

On How My Obsession With Furnishing A Future Put Me Nearly $40,000 In Debt

This piece guilted me out of my apartment fantasies temporarily, so I'll let the rest go.

On Ask a Dietitian: Wine Time, Fruit Soup, Our Forbidden Lover (Diet Coke)

In the U.S., the biggest obstacles to healthy eating seem to be poverty, infrastructure, and psychological shit. I don't the advice to drink less red wine and combine vegetable proteins goes very far.

On A Migraine *Just For You*

I got them only when I worked in an office, and they stopped after I had them turn off the fluorescent lights overhead. I guess studies indicate this correlation is false? But I was satisfied with the solution.

They weren't nearly as bad as those here, but I would have to go home, put a blanket over my head to block out sound and light, and just sort of lie there in too much pain to sleep but unable to look at or listen to anything.

On "Two Things Guys Don't Like Hearing About"

@E I know! For me, this means that period shits can be more than a week long, due to the weird new iterations of my womb cramping, and I may start spotting a full week before the actual cycle. I am hoping this dies down by my early 30s?
