I talk to my friend, he knows what I'm going through and he's here to help.. lucky me. If he's not available i just go to my brother, he's here for me too.
I talk to my sister. I’m trying to do ERP but I’m not sure I can do this.
I am in therapy. I am trying to complete an ERP assignment and I don’t think I can do it…
If it starts to feel overwhelming it’s okay to take a break from what you’re doing. It helps me to try practicing mindfulness or acknowledge that I’m struggling and then redirect my attention to something else. ERP overtime will help with this, but if you’re too anxious it can help to calm down a little first, then continue the exposure
