7/11 breathing. A skill to use for anxiety. It’s recommended to do it for 10-15 minutes. Like any other skill it does require a lot of practice. I advice that you practice it when you are feeling calm so you are ready in a time of need. If you lose count, which is easily done, simply start again until you do 15 minutes. It will also help with distraction even if you don’t get it right the first hundred times.


Breathing out longer than you breathe in actually activates your parasympathetic nervous system!
Anxiety is your sympathetic nervous system (“fight or flight”) setting off all the alarms, while breathing like this will set the parasympathetic system (“rest and digest”) into action shutting off the alarms and settling your nerves.
Other things that help: laughing, checking out what’s going on around you (moving head and eyes to orient to your surroundings), getting curious about something.
Take care, be safe.


This is so interesting anxiety is shitty but the “mechanics” (wrong word I’m tired) of it is fascinating imo. Like you get all this adrenaline and you can draw connections to ages ago when humans used fight or flight to survive on a daily basis.


I also find cold things help a lot. So a cold shower or holding/eating ice.


Also try to press besides your neck near the clavicle, it stimulates your vague nerve and so your parasympathetic sistem, it helps sooo much

If you didn’t cut last night, I’m proud of you. 


If you didn’t purge last night, I’m proud of you. 


If you ate something last night, I’m proud of you. 


If you calmed yourself down during an anxiety attack, I’m proud of you.


If you didn’t let the bullies get to you, I’m proud of you. 


If you stayed alive for another night, I’m proud of you.

Hey you replied to my post about having not overdosed for two weeks, thank you. It means a lot that someone would go out of their way to encourage my recovery. So thank you again and I hope you have a great day!

Of course! Just please know that I’m always rooting for you and I’m always in your corner.
