bpd coping methods
I’ve never seen stuff abt how to cope with bpd when you’re like mid-breakdown and shit so here’s some things i do to chill out or at least block out my symptoms long enough to calm down
- music- no sad music. stuff you know all the words to. turn it up loud enough to block out your bad thoughts and anxiety and sing along until the mood swing passes
- airplane mode- if ur anxious bc ur fp or anyone isn’t responding to you/ignoring you, turn ur notifications off and turn ur phone on airplane mode so you won’t be sitting there waiting for them
- reassuring yourself- when you start feeling like ur fp doesn’t care about you anymore keep something around to remind you of a time when you KNEW they loved you. keep screenshots, stuffed animals, the ticket stub from when they took u to a movie, just something to remind you of that feeling
- venting- write your bad thoughts on a piece of paper and then destroy it. set it on fire in the bathtub, tear it to shreds. post on the Vent app. tell it to someone u can trust, tell it to me. getting those thoughts out and having them validated helps so much
that’s pretty much all I can think of right now but if u have more pls add it so I can rb it!
