Hi B2,

It is good to hear that you talked to your T and I hope you feel better very soon.

I have a suggestion for an additional tool you may be able to use.
While feeling more in control of things, write a letter to yourself listing the reasons why the bad thoughts are not to be taken seriously or obeyed and explaining that the strong feelings are a part of you that gets out of control and that this state, as frightening as it is, is temporary. You can add that what you feel and think while out of balance is a sort of illusion taking over, something like a nightmare, and that you know that this will pass. The written message will serve as proof that there is another reality and that you have been there. You can also place reminders in the form of small objects in places you know you will come across.

Take care,
Nellie.
