Used to be weed now its exercise. When ever that doesnt work i ramble here.

weed’s not my thing, and I tend to procrastinate on exercise. I’ve tried a lot of times, but failed.

Plying music or watching some TV show I like, when it’s too painful to even focus on that, I tend to fall to bad habits and either end up drinking or knocking myself out with sleeping pills.

Writing works too sometimes, or forcing yourself into some conversation with others even if it’s just online. Nature can do wonders too if you can find a little secluded spot to enjoy the peace of it all. dunno, just something that helps clear your mind for a moment, it can be quite different for everyone. Maybe make a list of things that you used to like, or think you might like, and try to work your way down making notes as to what works and what doesn’t next time you you need it.

Music works for me! I’ve never tried writing. I will giv it a shot. And I havn’t tried making notes coz I’d just remember everything( I’ve a good memory šŸ™‚ ), but I’ll do it and see how it works.

Music. Always the go to.

To an extent writing, the gym and swimming.

But music is always the go to, even while I’m doing the other three. I haven’t figured out how to listen to music while swimming. This is why I need a intel chip processing chip and an internal operating system in my brain to plug into. I’m pretty sure I’d use an HDMI port so I could live stream movies and podcasts but a USB port might be okay as well since it is so universal. I’d have a little rubber stopper to keep the moisture out when I’m not actively using it.

AngelActually,

Years of careful research has gone into perfecting my coping skills. Iā€™d be glad to share them with you.

1.) VODKA: large quantities ” vase amounts” of vodka! always have big bottles and a spare in reserve never run out.

2.) CIGARETTES: cigarettes lots of cigarettes! buy them by the carton I buy 2 cartons a week.

3.) BIC LIGHTER: Buy one Bic lighter, you will only need one because you will light one cigarette after another off each other.

4.) PILLS: I have an array of pills, different prescriptions for any medical condition you could think of, pills to get you up in the morning, pills to bring you down at night to sleep, pills to deal with headaches, pill to deal with pain, pills to counter act pills when needed. take them when every you feel like it or your just bored.

5.) WRITE STORIES: Write lots and lots of stories about you and your friends, trying to make people laugh or smile, without them wanting to kill you!

6.) DISAPPOINTMENT: Become very disappointed with the human race, and everyone around you, this helps you deal with disappointment when i happens, your not surprised!

7.) COOK: Cook your favorite foods, BBQ ribs, steaks, spaghetti, meat loaf, tacos, tostadas, super subs, chili cheese burgers, and so on.

8.) JUNK FOOD: Have a wide assortment of potato chips, TV Dinners, candy, in case your to drunk to cook.

9.) OWN CATS: you need cats that chase you around the house and bite your ankles every five minutes! they will keep you occupied, and helps keeps you alive because you know if something happens to you, they will be put to sleep, and you don’t like that idea.

10.) CAN’T MENTION #10: I’d probably be band from this site! use your imagination šŸ™‚

AngelActually, these are just a few of my coping skills! i hope you find them helpful šŸ™‚

There you go with more yeses.

Actually cooking worked for me last time. But give the finished dishes to anyone around so you don’t end up binging.

Thinking on describing what I feel to others. When I put things in words they always end up looking so incredibly small.

Walking through the city, maybe buying something cheap but nice…. But must of all walking.

AngelActually 2/7/2016 - 1:45 pm

Cooking is definitely not my thing, but sometimes I buy something cheap and it works for me. It’s like having your desires in the little things in this world which you can easily get.

AngelActually 2/7/2016 - 1:46 pm

To everybody here, thank u so much guys….I’d reply to you even if I’m dead, I promise!

bah 2/7/2016 - 7:05 pm

So…you’d be the ‘real’ ghostwriter? šŸ˜›

muspelhem 2/7/2016 - 2:58 pm

Coping skills? Give me a break. How can I cope with my life and people sucking so much that I feel like killing myself all the time? I can try to distract myself, but that only keeps me in this pain longer.

bah 2/7/2016 - 7:29 pm

Eating and sleeping used to be my coping mechanisms. Now…

Suicidal Angel 2/7/2016 - 9:08 pm

It really depends on which emotion you are talking about coping with.
If its anger there are lots of things you can bash the shit out of to get it out,
preferably soft things so you don’t hurt yourself.
If its sadness, sometimes you just gotta let yourself cry to release it.
If you have trouble getting the tears out then find a really sad movie, it always works.
And if you are having a complete full on huge suicidal meltdown – sedatives.
Sometimes you just have to knock yourself out to protect yourself or others.
But seriously I think distraction is probably the best thing.
You have to find something else to focus on and preferably something that is good for you.
Even if its as simple as just changing the scenery. If you don’t want to leave the house, try a different room, anything to shift that immediate focus.
Like others have suggested, if you have no one you can call to talk to then write your feelings down. Whatever you are feeling imagine it as energy that needs to be released.
Run really fast on the spot to the point of exhaustion, dance it out, have a shower and imagine it being all washed away. Imagination can be powerful when used.

cutting, music, crying, singing. The last one was stupid, but accurate.

sadlife958 2/10/2016 - 8:30 pm

To be honest my coping skills is avoiding people. The more I avoid the better and stronger I feel for myself because that’s how I protect myself however I do it without people noticing its a strange skill I learned.

The other hmmm well I’d never recommend it. The other is actually speeding.

The third is music just like hazy said.
