Coping strategies – Nadia A


Nadia (A) tried to cope with worrisome thoughts by thinking about something nice, like her grandchildren. However, as she explains, that only worked to a point.


When I go to sleep I think of it and then I tell myself look just push it away. Push it away from your brain try and think of something else. And I try to think of something else or something nice or my grandchildren what I can do for them and that’s until I fall asleep. When I get up in the morning again I go to the bathroom, I brush my teeth, I go make my breakfast it’s on my mind … Yes I think it will be on my mind until it’s over, until it’s over.
