Who do you look to for comfort (i.e., hugs, the right words, etc.)?
Typically my one sis. Dh if I don't need encouraging words..he is great at listening but doesn't usually know what to say at all.
Do you have any favorite comfort foods?
Italian food - although I am not a big comfort eater in general.
When you're feeling down, do you prefer to be alone or with others (who?)?
It depends on who the "others" are. If it is the right person I would rather be with them...otherwise I would prefer to be alone.
Do you ever listen to music when you're sad? What kind? Any particular songs and/or artists?
I do - but like Laura - mostly to make myself more sad. Often when I feel like I need to cry & yet "not feel alone" I go to the NILMDTS website. I think the song that plays is amazing & the pictures although they break my heart feel somewhat healing to me as well.
