The best medicine against feeling bad is to crawl into bed under a blanket and to be trying to prevent yourself from crying. You don’t leave from under the blanket until the feeling of ‘bad’ is over. It is allowed to order food from the bed, but only if the food can be taken in with a straw, through which you suck the food. Don’t allow anyone else near or under the blanket. In these moments of ‘bad’, isolation is key. Failing to take certain steps from this plan is a recipe for the failure of your self-treatment. When in doubt, try not to cry harder. When trying not to cry doesn’t work, assume an uncomfortable position for extended stretches of time. While it may never end, cheer yourself up with the thought that other people are not feeling bad.
