So I am wondering what things others use to cope in the moment where the suicidal feelings start to get harder to resists. Figured I'd make a thread about it. In no particular order. Breathing exercises: Breathing is something that we always have with us. It can be the difference between a state of panic and a sate of being a bit more reasonable. music: calming stuff... I like instrumental stuff. pictures: I printed out some pictures of family/friends. I rarely leave the house without them in my vehicle at this point. A nice reminder of those who care... and the right picture can really show you what you mean to somebody else. So what does everyone else do?
