Hi GG--

I've never "talked" to you on these posts before but I've truly enjoyed reading about your insights, thoughts, experiences...feels like i learn a lot from you and many others here.

Anyways, I believe in the power of deep breathing; i'm currently taking an acting class (to help me overcome some shyness issues) and we always warm up with some simple yoga stretches and breathing exercises. I used to think this was a waste of time but during class last night I felt so much more relaxed and grounded. The key is to inhale deeply through the nose and exhale through the mouth. You may want to practice this several times and see how you feel.

Other things I've found helpful:
-Writing in my journal--this is a definite must for me especially just before my session w/my T and afterwards
-Physical exercise (i run)
-Shopping (whether or not i buy anything is not important...window shopping will usually do the trick too!)
-Bubble baths
And if none of the above seem to still not be of any help, i'll take a little nap.

Hope this helps and take good care!
