If I get a bit scared I put on all the lights and listen to some music I like, or read a book that is funny or watch something light hearted. Anything to distract myself from feeling scared and put me in a different frame of mind. :)

I used to do mindless repitition ( solitare games etc)to keep myself in the "here and now" so I didn't give in and "go under".
Don't know if it will help anyone else. Anybody else do that?

I was going to say to turn on the lights too. Put on the telly or the radio. Call a friend - anything to distract yourself. x x x
