Sit outside and take in the sights, sounds, and smell of the surroundings.
I have Dissociative Identity Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder. I have suffered since my father tried to drown me in the bathtub. 23 year’s later, I’m alive somehow and with the best partner I could ever ask for. I am learning how to live all over again, but I’m not alone anymore. My partner accepts me and my alters. I honestly never thought I would make it this far, but here I am. I struggle to see the light, but it’s there. I know that now.
Have a sleep schedule.
Listen to music.
“From down this low, it’s only up we go!”
Whenever I’m feeling stressed, I find that listening to music really helps. No matter what kind of music it is, it melts my anxiety away. 🙂
Write down positive affirmations and put them in places where you can often see them. They act as great reminders, especially during difficult moments.
Looking for coping skills for my two teenage kids
Eat a snack!
You are not alone when you suffer from anxiety and depression. It affects everyone – and it affects everyone differently. Setting 2-3 small goals for the day is a good way to develop new ways of thinking/doing and establishing long-term plans for well-being.
We are all human beings who go through difficult times. We can all survive our trials and be happy again.
Things really can get better just don’t give up!
So depressed, no money, sick, unable to work.. wish I had my own place.
