Coping with fear

I have these episodes where I feel overwhelmingly fearful. When I had my psychotic break, I experienced what I would describe as sheer terror. It shook me to my core and ever since I’ve struggled with feeling like I am unsafe.

What do you do to feel better when you’re feeling afraid? Does anyone do any helpful self-talk?

I have uncontrollable fear as well. It’s usually when I’m inactive. There’s not really anything I do. I just try to brush it off. Tell myself it will end and pass.

There’s nothing I can do about most of my fears so I just try to concentrate on watching sports on TV and not worry too much.
