As a fellow sufferer of panic attacks and extreme anxiety, I wanted to help him out using one of the go-to tools in my arsenal - distraction.
I asked him to come downstairs, cuddled with him and reassured him for a few moments, then hopped up and decided to continue doing dishes, while getting him to put together our supper for tonight.
First up I had him grease the slow cooker pot with some grapeseed oil, although I gave him the option to use peanut if he'd prefer, but he didn't think it made a difference.
|Frozen hash browns as the base.|
|Mama's favourite condiment - SALSA!|
|Nacho cheese. A guilty pleasure for our whole household.|
|Now we're getting somewhere!|
|Feeling better now that he's on a mission. :)|
|At first I wondered about the physics of this position, then realized I had my other leg extended out behind me.|
|A good amount of cheese. Has anyone EVER said "Oh, this dish has too much cheese"?!|
|Like lobsters in the pot! Note the extra cheese on Aunt Vicki's placemat. Daddy can clean that up.|
|Cook faster you slow cooker!|
|Minutes before the bowl was empty - it was FANTASTIC!!!|
