    Am I understanding that correctly?
    In each day a new opportunity is feasible. I in fairness can have down times. I have this optimism and will to go forward though, so I don't let life stop me.

    Mmmm. Serotonin.


    Seriously, that's pretty much it for me. Other things might help, but in the end, I needed meds to really help with my problems. Deep breathing, trying to change thoughts that further anxiety, talking to a therapist, exercise, friends/family all helped somewhat, but not enough.

    Y’all have fun with your serotonin, I’ll be taking my dopamine out for a run later tonight to get my high. We go back, way back. I literally ran from my problems growing up. Once you reach a certain point while running, you reach a mental clarity, and I tend not to find that many other ways.

    Answering this thread, ya, running (lately I’ve replaced that with skateboarding), losing myself in thought also tends to help a lot, whether that be a daydream of something fanciful or one of three landscapes I’ve constructed in my head that I like to return to where I find my inner calm, but essentially, my coping mechanisms tend to be strategies that temporarily pull me from a situation so that I can isolate emotionally from it and return to an inner peace that I had before some trigger or episode. Once I’ve reached that inner calm from that initial spike in emotion, then I address the situation much more level headed and with fortitude in resolving it either immediately or by setting the wheels in motion towards more long term goals of desired outcomes.

    When I am stressed, distraught, in pain, anxious or depressed, I do isometric dancing to rock n roll, or swing until I start to feel high again.

    When I feel like killing myself, I go watch anime or write. But my biggest coping mechanism is probably hearing things, and instantly forgetting them. It just goes straight into subconscious processing and compartmentalizes everything. I don't evenknow whats there unless the topic comes out and I peer into its contents. But each box, is pandoras box and they are best left closed.
