Tip of the Day

Patience and pacing are both cornerstones to overcoming setbacks but having a "relapse plan" can be very helpful. It may be the last thing you want to think about when you are relatively well but it can save lots of time and energy later. Psychotherapist Val Rubie agrees that setting up arrangements for how you'll cope in the event of relapse will lessen its emotional impact, so you're less likely to panic. Everyone's plan will be specific to them and their circumstances but could include things like making prior arrangements with friends or family to help out when, or preferably before, a crisis comes.
