 2014-2015 School Supplies Haul! (College Freshman)

plathwasaperfectionist:

I’m not completely done with school supply shopping yet, but I know that by the time I am, it’ll be after work Thursday night and I’ll be in a packing frenzy since I move in at 8 AM Friday, so this is my last chance to take pictures of things in their packaging before I mess them up. Therefore,…

I made a comfort box and although I don’t think this post is going to be seen by anyone, I’m still uploading it because it makes me feel good to post recovery related things (even though I’m not recovering at all) and I hope it will be useful and inspire other people who want to make their own box. I hope mine will help me in the worst moments of my depression and give me a bity of relief during anxiety, panic and depersonalisation/derealization attacks.

If you’d like any suggestions about what to put in it or want to vent your bad thoughts I’m here for you, always.

I divided my comfort box in five sensory sections (and one extra).

HEARING: A list of music to listen to, including

  • my iPod playlist called “soothing” which is full of relaxing music
  • my CDs but not the depressing ones such as Radiohead or I’d stab myself in the heart

SIGHT:

  • a glitter jar
  • a snow ball
  • a prism
  • a journal / scrapbook I entitled “understood and loved” with pictures that cheer me up when I’m sad. The cover is a printed drawing by Taylor Ruth of thisishangingrockcomics.tumblr.com because I love her art
  • photos of me and my friends and grandparents, whom I adore
  • letters from my best friends
  • my 2011 XL (favourite Italian magazine) scrapbook
  • theatre, concert, plane and museum tickets
  • a picture of the clouds I took on a plane which gives me a lot of hope
  • the loveliest postcard
  • London and Oslo guides
  • Icelandic course

SMELL:

  • four kinds of incense
  • Soap & Glory hand cream
  • Guerlain body lotion
  • Occitan (French) blueberry soap
  • Hungarian rose soap
  • soda flavoured chapsticks
  • black tea given my by a dear friend of mine

TASTE:

  • a piece of plastic to chew on - I know it’s not good for my health but eating plastic objects relieves my anxiety and I don’t care if you find it gross or whatever
  • Ferrero Rocher pralines
  • various sweets / candies
  • an homoeopatic medicine of which I like the flavour, it’s totally useless as a medication anyway


TOUCH:

  • pastel modelling clay
  • a stress ball
  • pluriball
  • a “I love boobies” plastic bracelet to snap on my wrist to distract me, as long as it doesn’t hurt me
  • a rattle that was given me at a Rocky Horror Show play and kind of looks like an uterus???
  • a brain-shaped rubber ‘cause I like to run my fingers along its grooves

MIND + MEMORIES: aka everything else

  • tissues
  • a cat toy to summon my magic cat and make her stay with me, her purring always calms me a lot
  • some British pounds that are pleasantly cold and nice to touch and which also remind me of how beautiful London is
  • a marker pen I’ve had for 16 years and reminds me of my childhood
  • rainbow make-up I bought at the Milan 2011 gay pride
  • a ring with the Union Jack which is too small for my chubby fingers but is nice to have in such a box because my friend Alessandra gave it to me and it makes me feel protected
  • some Xanax and laxative pills even though I don’t use any of them - I don’t know, I like how they are
  • compact powder for steam inhalation given me as a present

I hope someone will read this as it’s so important for me :)

Tears

writingsofthedeafeningsilence:

Eyes swollen

Hands shaking

Fingers sore from all the wringing

Throat raw

Head throbbing

Lips aching from all the biting

Heart broken

Chest empty

Mind knows there’s something missing
