What kind of adjustments have you made in your guys’ lives to help? Or adjustments you plan to do? Lol!

      Making sure I have a great care team (doctors, therapists, holistic professionals, etc.) who all know what's up, a dedicated support system (friends, family, and partners who are willing to show up for you in many ways), and a sense of independence in coping. The intentionality of thinking, "I'm going to light my favorite candle and put on my comfy socks and that will bring me momentary comfort." You have to be a lot more intentional than other folks.

        @loveshespoke I appreciate your thoughtfulness, the intentional part for relaxing is very true and I forget to do it often.

      Because I felt that my therapist didn’t help a lot, I haven’t gotten a new one. But my regular doctor says I need some way to not keep things bottled up inside. So I am going to write a little short (or long) note in a journal for myself every night and try to keep it up as long as I can. I’ve also started using apps like this where I can see problems other people have and try to use their solutions on my own and improve my mood. one time my note in my journal was just this: “today was alright. felt fine. peace is nice.” and it was alright, because i just write what i feel like and it’s all good as long as I don’t hold it in.

        @MuffinCat that sounds like a great idea actually! Also, I didn’t like my first therapist at all. Her methods just didn’t work. She wanted to dig into what had happened to me and it left me feeling gutted and then when I left I was expected to pack it all back in. I felt awful. My second therapist did this differently and loved her! Instead of digging into the events, she dug into the behaviors and helped me actively change those instead of focusing on the past. But also, therapy might not be something you like! All I’m saying is, don’t let one therapist dictate what therapy is, period. Thank you for taking the time to respond to me! ❤️
