My T likes to talk about these things and how I have trouble 'managing my feelings'. I personally get so upset that I have a hard time fathoming how I am supposed to do any of these things when all I know is that I am falling to pieces and so terribly upset I think I'm breaking in pieces. It's always bothered me that I can't, but I haven't figured out how to make these work for me. Sometimes I can try a little mindfulness, or I watch tv or do something online. I think that my primary coping method is dissociation though - I think I might get that idea of brain smoothing you are talking about Dinah - I have to close my eyes, but then all of a sudden everything is gone and forgotten and I'm calm. The problem is then that I've forgotten whatever it was and it upsets me again when it comes back...
