A suggestion about how you might use the DBT 'STOP' skill to 'avoid avoiding'. #BPDChat https://t.co/8lR8SLdnPy

@CarlDunnJr I’m 2 months sober later this week and since I used alcohol to suppress and avoid emotions, I’m finding myself having more episodes rather than fewer. Recovery from alcoholism and BPD at the same time is tough but I feel like I’m making strides toward accepting my feels #bpdchat

RT @CarlDunnJr: When you are avoiding thoughts, feelings, body sensations, you are avoiding the things that give you identity. #BPDChat

You can use the DBT skill of 'Opposite Action' to do the opposite when you find yourself avoiding. This is a transcript of a Marsha Linehan video. #BPDChat https://t.co/SyBgv6dG2h

One of the 'What Skills' in DBT Mindfulness is the opposite of Avoidance - Participating. This is a transcript of a Marsha Linehan video. #BPDChat https://t.co/RriD0bVRwD

@CarlDunnJr I do this all the time, I try and not to. But sometimes I feel like I need to do this because if I don’t distract away I’d do something drastic which will lead into a crisis. #BPDChat

@ang_fran i cld agree - i have 'portions' i see as a thing to 'love.' what are yours? Mine wld be empathy, ability to 'read' ppl - when i'm in a 'good' place those are useful, helpful #BPDChat
ur fren w bipolar & BPD (they/them) @brain_bpd
@CarlDunnJr Wow I relate to this so much. I put off reading a friend’s book cuz I don’t want to “read it wrong.” I recently realized that I was putting off lesson planning because I wanted to do PowerPoints for every lesson. I realized I can take it one lesson/day at a time instead #BPDchat

@Luciek11K @ang_fran Before I was diagnosed, I went to the ER thinking I was having a heart attack. More than once. I’m a little embarrassed but it’s a very real pain. My stomach also hurts. I find it’s sometimes helpful to use topical rubs on my chest (menthol, pain relief). I feel you. #bpdchat

@brain_bpd @ang_fran I'm going to try that thank you x but yes can totally understand that...I get so confused as to whether pains or sensations are physical or coming from emotions #bpdchat
