In case of unexpected crying, panic etc. during important or productive moments, do you do if you need to vent but don't want to cause long term compassion fatigue on others or pain to yourself? Writing makes me ruminate more and you can't vent to a therapist every single time you feel bad. Meds artificially suppressed my emotions and I couldn't tolerate them after a few days. Don't want to go through that again. Some people on here like to rage or breaking things, for me, rage is a learned thing and I don't need it much. I just don't want to stay down but when my worst, existential fears get triggered, addressing them and running away from them doesn't make it less difficult. I still end up feeling down if not crying, scared, helpless etc. Anything to help it get out without being stuck in a bad headspace for minutes to hours (acute feels) would be appreciated! Want to speed up recovery and focus on the new instead of fighting the old.
