    Wow, this seems so incredibly hard, and I really feel for you, @pretty36.

    I’m not a professional, but I do want to offer you some support and validate your feelings.

    I don’t know much from your post, but perhaps you’re doing really hard work, like trauma work, that’s eliciting all these painful feelings? Or, it could be that “regular” therapy is very draining and it’s taking a toll on you.

    Have you discussed this with your therapist and psychiatrist? Perhaps you need to get used to the meds you’re on, or you need to adjust them…

    In terms of coping skills (because you said you’re crying all day), can you allow yourself some space to cry, but not to an excessive amount? Again, I don’t know the specifics of your situation, but I have a very hard time allowing myself just to feel whatever I’m feeling and just let it be. And that’s particularly hard when I’m crying a lot, because it feels like I “shouldn’t” be.

    What about listening to soft, soothing music from Youtube, journaling your feelings without judgement, and doing tiny baby steps to distract yourself?

    I just want to also tell you that you are NOT helpless. Right now, you are probably very overwhelmed, and that’s okay – – it really is. But after using some coping skills to calm down, you will see that you are NOT helpless. And if the coping skills don’t work, you’re still not helpless. Give yourself space and validate your experience. I find that when I do that, I feel a little better.

    I hope that this helps you even a little. Keep Strong!!
