        It’s a DBT method i use for my bpd. The R stands for rest. Take a deep breath and take a step back. E is examine. Why are you upset? S is for set an intention. What would you like to do about how you feel? (In a healthy way) and the T is for take action. Implement your intention. This method helps calm me down because I get overwhelmingly angry sometimes.

    I struggle with emotional permeance as my ADHD seems to combine with my BPD to create a whirlwind of strong emotions. I try to give myself time to think and feel the emotion as strong and unpleasant as it can be. It feels like it will last forever, but I've noticed if I feel it rather than fight it. It becomes easier to deal with. Identify where it's coming from, what caused it, aknowledge it, and then I visualize the feelings leaving as I breath out. I don't know if this will help you, but it seems to help me at times.
