Polyglot- A Coping Skill
Hi. Hola. Hallo. Ciao.
I love learning languages. It’s a great coping mechanism. Who else uses languages to cope? I’m working towards becoming a polyglot. What’s your goal?
Thanks. Gracias. Danke. Grazie.
I’ve been officially diagnosed with fibromyalgia since 2019. I’ve failed a number of medications including LDN. I’m meeting with my doctor tomorrow (9/9/22) to hopefully approach the drawing board once again because this is ridiculous! If you all have any tips, advice….whatever please feel free to reach out. Thank you!

Start taking one photo every time you’re anxious or feeling like you want to give up. It can be a selfie or a flower, of your pet or a cityscape. In that photo is a reason to keep going. Keep those photos tagged, so you can look back and see every moment that you survived the lies that your mind told you: that you can’t keep going, can’t keep surviving. Because you can. And you’re strong enough. I believe in you. #CopingTips #ArtTherapy #CPTSDstrong
Let's start a coping list thread #CopingTips
My boss is away sick again and it's just me in the office. This time of year is extremely busy and I am so stressed. I just want to curl up in a ball under my desk and cry and then take a nap. I'm already getting super anxious about her three week holiday in August.
I'm trying to focus on one task at a time, but the phone keeps ringing and bringing me new urgent situations.
I'm chewing some intensely minty gum and drinking very cold water to try to help me stay present and focus, but I'm not coping super well.
I struggle with anxious/depressed thoughts that put me down. I often wish I could turn them off. Especially as my stress levels rise the constant thoughts flood my brain. The thoughts make me feel undeserving of happiness or compassion. It’s an ongoing battle that makes me feel alone. I want to have a clear mind and not be pulled down by my anxious thoughts. Or feel out of control. I need a friend sometimes to talk to so I feel less alone with my thoughts. I know in time I will figure out how to cope and be happy but for now I feel unhappy and uncertain. #sad #Anxiety #alone #CopingTips
