      I see a therapist but I also read in my spare time. Stuff revolving around trauma usually, but there are good books for anything. If you don't know where to start, I recommend No Bad Parts. It talks about how your parts of you are ESSENTIAL to your growth. If therapy isn't your thing, reading up on stuff you feel is super helpful. Basically, reading helps you learn and then writing in a journal about what you think after helps you process! Journaling does wonders!

      I think seeing a professional can actually HELP you find ways to do things on your own. I’m the same way, I hate having to sit in the same room with someone and talk about my broken brain. I usually request online meetings instead of in person because I’m more comfortable and it’s easier to talk that way :) I hope u get better advice 😭💕

      I bring fidget toys with me to help keep me grounded during doctor's appointments

      Focusing on the moment like really being in tune to your senses and what’s around you. And like @comealittlecloser said, that will help with that.

      I think meditation involving calming sounds and deep breathing really helps
