I’m happy to say I do actually have that med review today thank goodness.
However, my coping skills need some work. I give myself a B-.
I used breathing and imagery for a while during group. That actually helped because it allowed me to stay in large group and not run out.
I reached out for support from a provider when I was struggling to figure out what my distorted thought was.
I reached out to a support person last night when my anxiety was through the roof and she was able to help direct me to other coping skills.
I made art.
I listened to music.
I remembered to take my “as needed” dose of anxiety medication (I forget that a lot).
I still kind of had a massive freak out. I didn’t fall asleep until after 2:30 a.m. which is really late for me.
I survived though and I figured it out. I didn’t end up drinking or doing something worse. I was pretty squirrelly. It definitely could have been much worse.
