Re: Help getting through today

First question, what helps you "get back on track?"

Re: Help getting through today

We don't feel like you're a waste of space and we love helping you out Smiley Happy

 

It's what we're here for and you're never bothering us, so even though you might feel like that right now, it's important to know that we don't see it that way Smiley Happy

 

Here's some options for things you can do today:

 

Distraction and coping

Practice you distraction skills or try some new ones until things feel a little easier again (it will happen!)

Problem solving:

Talk about what's happening for you and work out what might help it be a little less tough

Getting extra help:

Calling someone or going to hospital

 

What would you like to have a go at at the moment? If it's too tough to choose right now do you want me to pick a thing or give you a challenge?

Re: Help getting through today

@scared01 that is REALLY AMAZING! I know that it feels tough right now, but you have built a very good safety net around yourself right now so that you can keep working on feeling a bit better, and know that there are lots of people there if things get too tough. That's so cool Smiley Happy

 

What're some of the strategies you have been given to try, could you add them to your safety planning thread?

 

 

You are so great! Smiley Happy

Re: Help getting through today

Oh i know about TIP although maybe not TIPP I wonder if they are similar!

 

I know @redhead does TIP and finds it helps, although sometimes its tricky to do!

 

Can you tell us how you're doing TIPP and what it all means?
