Continuing our series of tips for coping with PMP, Dorothy from our support group shares this

I am an advocate of deep breathing if I need to calm myself down and it helps me. doesn’t cost anything and no side effects. If you need meds for now to help do it; you are going thru a lot at the moment. try to keep positive about as much as possible and deal with things one at a time. Not that this will help in this case but I make lists of what needs to be done and stick to it. feel better when I can SEE what I have done for the day and know I DID it.
