The Inner Child within us is not so hidden. He is an albatross around our neck.

Hi Jasmine, you can start the new thread by selecting "new thread" from the top left hand side of the screen with all the different threads posted. You can also do a search of all subjects to find out where it best fits. I'd be interested in the discussion.

Thank you for all the links some of them will help me as much that will help to be part of this Forum.
I have been in a DBT group last year, helps very much learning how to cope with my emotions. Due to a physical illness I only attended for a month. Now I can learn new skills here that hopefully will help me with my anxiety and panic attacks.

Quote:
DBT is a form of psychotherapy that was originally developed by Marsha M. Linehan, a psychology researcher at the University of Washington, to treat people with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and chronically suicidal individuals. Although, research on its effectiveness in treating other conditions has been extremely limited, DBT is now used in a variety of psychological treatments including treatment for traumatic brain injuries (TBI), eating disorders, and mood disorders. Scant research indicates that DBT might have some effect on patients who present varied symptoms and behaviors associated with spectrum mood disorders, including self-injury. Recent work also suggests its effectiveness with sexual abuse survivors and chemical dependency.

DBT combines standard cognitive-behavioral techniques for emotion regulation and reality-testing with concepts of distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindful awareness largely derived from Buddhist meditative practice.
I have to say that the Group I was part of should have people with the same issues. Like anxiety and panic attacks in one DBT Group and so on .... But, the therapist knows better I guess.

Thanks again, Hugs

Thank you for posting all the links for dealing with emotions and stress, I think at times dealing with these two topics for me are the hardest thing to do, I honestly do not deal with them very well.

Very helpful links. I like the second article you posted. I am aware that I am a highly sensitive person and I tend to just get overwhelmed by my emotion and have a hard time thinking logically. It's like a switch. The emotional side and then the Logical side. Yep.

this is a lovely list, originally posted by 'Can't Stop Crying', which puts anxiety skills in terms of "grounding techniques". perhaps some people can use these ideas in these words better~ thanks, CSC ~!

Top 21 Anxiety Grounding Techniques | Treating Anxiety

1. Bring up todayís newspaper on the web, notice the date. Read something fun!

2. Breathe slowly and steadily from your core. Imagine letting fear and worry go, evaporating along with each breath.

3. Trace your hands against the physical outline of your body. Experience your own presence in the world.

4. Call a friend and have a chat.

5. If you are feeling Ďstuckí, change how youíre positioned. Wiggle your fingers, tap your feet. Pay attention to the movement: You are in control of what your body is doing, right here and now.

6. Eat or drink something. Is it hot, or cold? Sweet or sour?

7. Meditate, if thatís OK for you. Otherwise use distractions like television or music to help settle down.

8. Use your voice. Say your name or pick up a book and read the first paragraph you find out loud.

9. Look at yourself in the mirror. Smile, even if thatís the last thing you feel like! How does that feel? What can you see? (If negative thoughts come to mind, write them down to look at later but let them go for now. Youíre anxious enough as it is.)

10. Write out whatís going on. Keep writing until you start to notice it makes a difference, lets some of the things youíre anxious about out.

11. Take a shower/bath. Notice the sensations of the water.

12. Write somebody you care about an email.

13. Imagine yourself in a familiar, comfortable place. Feel the safety. Know it.

14. Take a look outside. Count the number of trees and street signs.

15. Exercise. Jump up and down on the spot. Try some gentle yoga, or ride a bike.

16. Hold onto something comforting. Maybe a blanket or an old stuffed toy.

17. Laugh. Even if thatís hard. Just the act of laughing about something, anything can break that spinning out of control feeling.

18. When youíre not too stressed, make a list of the things that provoke your anxiety. Take it to your therapist and ask them to help you find ways to desensitize you to some of those things. Then those triggers wonít be quite so powerful, and your anxiety coping skills will work better.

19. If you get PTSD flashbacks, when youíre feeling OK, make a list of the furniture in your home and what room itís in. Give the list to a friend you can call to help you focus on whatís now and safe.

20. List 5 really positive things in your life. Put the list where youíll see it and remember that thereís more to the world than just panic and fear.

21. Think about the last week. Was there a day you didnít have so much anxiety? Remember how it felt to be less anxious than you are right now. What was different? What can change?

(best wishes to all~!)

My husband found this for me. It really helps with my anxiety: "Sometimes the best thing you can do is: not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith knowing that with Jesus everything will work out for the best." ( I added with Jesus). I refer to this often and it has helped tremendously!

Thank you very much for this thread. It has already helped me and I think it will help me in the future.
I'm a hypersensitive person and I'm often overwhelmed by them. I will put into practise what I have read.
Very interesting and clarifying.
