Breathe: If you can find a quiet place - do so. Breath in slowly ; deeply through your nostrils. Fill your lungs with air (but not to the point of discomfort). Hold for a count of five then slowly begin to exhale through an open mouth. Repeat at least 12 times, longer if you need to.

All the abilities and coping skills that didn't develop properly becouse of my substance abusing, will I get them if remaining sober for a looong time?

Yes, but not by UPS: Good for you! Yes, stay sober for a looong time (maybe a bit of healthy wine/beer will be ok). But those lost years and the abilities/skills won't just come in a delivery truck. You need to develop them and you can. Even if you were older - but you're not. It will be ok. Plants usually catch up if planted late in our garden. Stay on track. Good luck.

Gentleness: Those with bpd, despite their emotional problems, are actually often better than average at noticing subtle levels of emotion. Therefore take a deep breath and help get them more comfortable by you dialing down your emotions both the positive and negative. Makes it easier for all involved in the long run!

When is the right time to ask for help when you selfharm like cutting I am in thearpy had some life changing events went back to a coping skill I know?

When is the right time to ask for help when you selfharm like cutting I am in thearpy had some life changing events went back to a coping skill I know?

Now.: When particularly stressed or challenged it is common to default back to an old coping mechanism. In this case, cutting is being used to cope. It is time to get back on the horse and ride now. Get help now to get back onto the track of using healthier ways to cope. Recovery is 1 step forward & 2 steps back.

Could you tell me what are good coping skills for bipolar disorder?

Could you tell me what are good coping skills for bipolar disorder?

I like your question: I often tried to help my bipolar type patients try to find ways to cope. We'd attempt to get a good sense of their usual pattern or rhythm and predict the weeks that were likely to be up or down and plan optional activities with that in mind. Also, if not smoothed out by medication, I urged them to remember that downs would be temporary - to wait it out. No permanent solution to temporary problems.

What are the best coping skills for anxiety.? Had over a year anxiety now and still having panic attacks and setbacks. Always thinking I die everytime

Breath work mindful: Skills like deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, and mindfulness help. Like any other skill these have to practiced regularly including when you are not having anxiety and panic for them to work well. I highly recommend seeing a psychologist to help you find skills tailored to your particular needs. Understand the reasons for your anxiety to find long-term solutions. Therapy will help.

There's mental health issues in family. They didn't learn coping skills. After years of me learning w. therapy/hard work, I'm finding that I've maybe got more than learned behavior. What does the discovery process look like. Just see my primary?

Congratulations: On working on your own coping skills. You MAY be being discouraged by the pathology that still exists in your family system. Stay rooted in what you have learned and exercise compassion w/family. See clinical psychologist for psych testing if you would like to know more about your personality. Peace and good health.

Does needing antidepressents mean that I just don't know how to handle my sadness and could medication be replaced with coping skills?

Does needing antidepressents mean that I just don't know how to handle my sadness and could medication be replaced with coping skills?

Perhaps: But the best way to succeed without medication is w/ a coach - a CTB therapist you trust and work well with can teach you coping skills and more. If they think you would benefit from meds, they'll help you see why. I'd try it drug free for a bit if you want to give it your best!

What to do if I am an minor autistic adult and want to fix my communication skills.?

Role play: Work with a therapist to do role play therapy so you can practice your skills - they don't come naturally to you, so you have to practice, practice. Also, make a conscious effort to look people in the eye when communicating. This will help you in starting to read facial expression and cues when people are communicating with you.
