ivorydragonfly replied to your post: do clinical psychologists…

I actually have had a nice, anxiety-induced “rule” for myself, since my first tear-filled therapist appt: no more than two tissues. Like, I get even more sad if I surpass this limit. My two tissues look like Hell afterward, too. 😓

I guess in that regard, a limit is a good idea. Maybe using a bunch of tissues just keeps it going?

I don’t have the restraint, I’d just sit there incapable of speaking because of my rapid, involuntary inhaling and bodily fluids running down my face, grabbing tissue after tissue in attempt to control said bodily fluids.
