HealingFromBPD.org: The Nuts and Bolts of DBT Self-Soothing: Guest Post by Rachel Cooper
There's such a lot here that's so simple. Taking care of myself when the dark or paranoid ephase begins is hard .... I'm starting a bad phase after a week of steady moods and only a handful of ugly outbursts - defused and contained within 2 or 3 hours - so I'd say specially as I did no physical or lasting cruel-words damage to anyone, not even myself, I've spent since last Friday till yesterday evening pretty even, manageing the BPD pretty well.
Good time today and this weekend to try break the usual trend and self soothe my way to stability for a while longer.
