Success Stories of overcoming (an anxiety/panic attack, manic bipolar episode, whatever.)
Prompt #1 Write a narrative of what works for you when in the midst of a crisis, such as, anxiety/panic attack or a manic episode. Please give an example of what happened, and how you broke free from it.
Example: Coping skills, talking to a family member or a friend, and/or therapy, mediations… (Just to name a few).
Honestly, I still find it super hard to develop healthy coping mechanisms to deal with these things. It’s a lot easier for me to go straight for the unhealthy ones, but I know in the long run they actually make things worse. When I’m having a panic attack or feel one coming on, I always take my prescribed Propranolol immediately to lower my heart rate. When I’m anxious, I have a trick where I try to turn the anxiety into excitement. They’re both very similar emotions, so it can really help.
Prompt #2 Pick One or Both The Photos/Pictures and explain how it makes you feel?
Example: In any format you choose! (Poetry, Short Prose, etc…)
This image makes me feel extremely content, comfortable and peaceful. Heavy rain mixed with sun is so beautiful to me.
This image makes me feel happy and positive.

Lots of love,
