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.

Why do people drink alcohol it tastes disgusting

you don’t drink it for the taste. u drink shit like apple juice for the taste. you drink alcohol to get rid of the bad taste that every awful person in your life has left

I suffer from that syndrome where your neutral expression makes it look like you’re a angry serial killer

Do you ever get like super vulnerable late at night that you just want to spill your heart out and say how you feel because you’ve been holding it in for so long and you just need some ventilation and there’s just something about two in the morning that makes me lose my filter and say the things I would never have the guts to say when the sun is up.

Hearing…

“You’re butt got bigger!” or “You’ve gained some weight!” , “Dang, what have you been eating?!” , “You’re clothes are looking too small, you got bigger.” , “You’re thighs are HUGE!” , “When did you gain all this weight?!”

After months of…

"You need to eat something, I can see your bones." or "You look sickly." or "No one is going to find a sickly girl attractive." OR "I’m not going to sit with you in the hospital when you have to get wheeled in there, because that’s where you’re going." OR "Do you want them to feed you through a tube in your stomach? ‘Cause that’s what’s gonna happen."

This is what causes me to fall time and time again. To relapse time and time again. This is the humiliation of my life day in and day out. There is not a day that goes by without a fucking comment being made about my body. My family members are the biggest bullies in my entire life. And it doesn’t help when people say “Love yourself and your body, you’re beautiful.” Thanks but I know the truth. Thanks but it’s you against my internal thoughts. Thanks but its you versus my family. Thanks but I don’t believe you. When I actually speak out about how I feel about their comments, I’m “too sensitive.” When people are like “It’s not that bad.” Stop being so negative.” “Just be happy.” “It doesn’t matter now, it’s in the past.” “Just get over it and think for the present.” NO. FUCK YOU! You don’t get it. I didn’t ask for this shit. I didn’t ask for any of it. Everything’s fucking blurry, I can’t even see the screen. Nothing in this text post even closely explains how I feel. I just put some fucking words together drifting in my mind while my thoughts race.
