Rebecca’s of Beckie’s Mental Mess Prompt – June 19, 2019


I chose this segment as this very thing happened to me.

Week #3 – Question Segment:  

Here are a few coping statements, do you agree or disagree?  Even if your answer is yes or no, please explain:

  1. This situation of sitting on a fully packed train either makes you feel uncomfortable or unpleasant, but I can accept it? I was extremely uncomfortable having agreed to ride on the train to meet my friend who was in North Jersey whereas I was located in South Jersey. By car, it is about 3 hours or less, but with 3 changes of trains and my terrible anxiety, it was taking me longer. Driving would have been more anxiety for me than this. 
  2. Can I ride out the wave of anxiety, or do I feel like I need professional help now? I was panicking and I kept telling myself that if I freak out and they take me to the hospital my family wouldn’t know where I was. So I tried deep-breathing and telling myself over and over that I was OK and that I could do this. 
  3. Do you practice coping skills? If so, what works best for you? I really don’t have coping skills unless you consider deep-breathing and talking to myself over and over a coping skill.

June 19, 2019, Week #3 – “Working on Us” – A Mental Health Questionaire, Plus a Photo Prompt – You Decide

🌻RULES:

Each week I will ask a question or questions pertaining to mental health and add a photo prompt.  Your job, if you so choose to join along, is to write a post on your own blog, and creating a ping-back to the original post.  

🌻It is up to you the reader to decide how you want to answer questions and/or photo prompt.  If you want to write a non-fictional or fictional piece, poetry, whatever… Whatever you choose to do, I will, therefore, reblog what you have written.  This is one way to not only promote your site but also spread awareness to all things mental health related. 🌻

As an added bonus… Since there are so many different mental health illnesses/disorders,  YOU, the blogger can send me a comment as to what you would like to be the next question (s), and they will be addressed in future posts.  

🌻What is the reason behind the “Mental Health Prompts of “Working on Us” (?) It’s fairly simple actually.  I’d like this series to be an all-inclusive mental health community blog in order to be a source of more support towards one another.  Idea’s, suggestions, and advice can be shared amongst the group.🌻

So, Are We Ready for Week# 3?  I am going to start with two prompts.  You can pick one or both, and again, you can choose how you want this to be written.  Don’t forget to create a pingback to the original post, this way I can share with more people within the mental health community, as well as promote your blog site!

Week #3 – Photo Prompt: What does this picture signify or evoke in you?  (Again, you can write however you see fit).

Now, remember to create a pingback on your own blog.  If you are having difficulties with pingbacks, copy your title and enter it in the comment section of this post.  

I sincerely look forward to your responses and remember, there are no right or wrong answers.  Plus, as a bonus, I will reblog whatever it is you submit, this way your blog gets more attention as well.  

Thank you in advance,

Beckie 🌻

PS… Please Reblog This Post So Many More Can Join In!  Thank You!

      Another New Jerseyite. For such a small state it has roads that last forever. I hate highways, they really rev my anxiety up. I was meeting someone so I didn’t have to take the train any further than I did because he met me, but then I had to return the next day, the same route. I won’t be traveling by train again by myself. I had to change trains twice so I rode three different ones and had to watch that I took the right train or I would end up in New York or Washington DC. What a scary ride.

          It was horrible. I was in a constant state of anxiety and panic attacks. Deep breathing and talking to myself helped a little bit, but I won’t do it again.
